I have a 1980 chevy camaro. it is the perfect hot rod for summer...it is a street machine! it was built for speed, kinda a pro steet look. it is very street friendly though. it has a 400 bored to make it a 406 that pushes 400+ horsepower. backed by a turbo 350 with a b&m shift kit. 4.10 gears in the rear end. posi. moser axels. welded in subframe. new wheels and tires.. the car is in primer, could use some body work. interior is average. the only thing that i would get done is fix the gauge cluster, i have a spare that goes with it. the person before me put in over 6000 grand in the drivetrain. this is a steal.

only one summer of driving on the engine. the heater works like a champ, i dont know about the ac and i dont know about the gauge cluster other than it doesnt work...it does have a little rust in the door pillar on the passenger side
im working on getting pictures. he is asking 3300 so i would guess 3000 is not out of the question. what do you guys think if the body is in good shape.

For that price? No way. I see early 90s Z28s going for that money around here.

Is this a project car for you? If so, I'd see if you can get him down around 25-2800 bucks. That should leave some cash for a paint job at least.

I would keep your 84 and put the work into it. Stick with the devil you know and all that jazz.

I think those weren't the most reliable years for the Camaro....

They're also not daily drivers

And the 90s were the most powerful ones.
