Museum Ad nauseam: 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Base

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: The only low mile & reasonably priced examples of any cars are always going to be equipped with the most undesirable of engine /transmission /trim /options.  I think if the car had been remotely fun or interesting to drive, the owner would have found some time to cruise around…but not today. .  Find this 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Base with 8,000 miles on the odometer offered for $6,500 in Cape Coral, FL via craigslist.  Tip from Dascpcu.


The third generation F-Body Camaro is one of those cars that hasn’t (and might never) achieved collector status, which is strange given its strong following and V8 engines & manual gearboxes.  However, today’s Camaro has neither and is lowered by a 2.8 liter LC1 V6 (barf!) good for 102 horsepower and 145 ft-lbs of torque.  Hang on…it gets worse.



The only way to make a miserable GM V6 even more miserable is to mate it to a cantankerous and dumb-shift 3-speed slushbox automatic gearbox. So why are we looking at this car?  Because it has only 8080 original miles on the odometer…and that’s gotta be worth something to somebody…right?
