I have the Camaro White Book, is it accurate? According to it until '93
you couldn't get a 350 with manual tranny, only the 305, and then in '93
you could but not with t-tops, is all that true?
I have an '83 z28 that I'm planning to fix up, the pevious owner was a
nut and beat the body up a bit, but with prices what they are I'm
thinking it may just make more sense to get a car that's allready in
good shape. Th one I have has a bad tranny and was planning to put an
engine and tranny out of an 86 I have (a wreck but tranny and engine are
good) I also have a line on a free parts car, an '89 RS for the body
work I need, but even with all the free parts I'm wondering if it would
be worth the labor costs to rstore it when a z28 in decent condition can
be had for 2500-3500 in my area.<tucson>
Also I actually prefer stick to the automatic I'd have and am wondering
which is the faster car, the 305/stick or the 350/automatic. Any
opinions? If you were to get something for under $5000, what would you
be looking for? What about fourth gen firebirds with V8's? Are they as
fast as the camaros? 5.7's or 5.0's? I don't care for third generation
firebirds but would be open to the fourth, are there many differences in
the running gears?
Thanks for any and all replies.
