Dumpster Diving: 1984 Chevrolet Camaro V6

 Award winning Science Fiction writer Joan D. Vinge once wrote:  “There’s no such thing as a free lunch, at least on the karmic level.” So, how much karma will you need to bank ahead of time to make this next feature worth your time/sweat/energy?  Find this 1984 Chevrolet Camaro offered for free in Boise, ID via craigslist.  Tip from John.

The 3rd generation Camaro was available with some terrible engine choices, included a 2.5 liter LQ9 4-banger, but today’s example has a 2.8 liter LC1 V6 that put out 102 horsepower and 145 ft-lbs of torque.  It will be fairly miserable to drive, but for a first car for your kid (for free) it could be worse.
