Z28 Kommando back home!

Post by Johann65 » Wed 24 Sep 2014, 20:52

This Kommando stood for 2 Years just under an open port and got its backside bleached against the afternoon sun!
Engine started up, All OK! :D Had to refill the auto box as the ATF leaked out over time 8O
Interior needs a valet but still OK ;) Tires still as-new! :D Not to mention the engine bay clean up required :( !

It has the complete drivetrain of a 1984 Camaro Z28. :D It has the original 305 engine. :)
That is why I regard it as the fastest car ever owned!! :D :D
It is just temporary with me. Not speaking 8O Capable of smoking down the road 8)
