So last night I was pursuing the book of faces market place when I came across a 1987 Camaro for sale.

Since I am a glutton for punishment and I always wanted a 3rd gen camaro I messaged the seller.  I took a look at it today at lunch.

We made a deal and I pick it up tomorrow.

 

It is a 305 TPI 5 speed, body is straight no rust, interior could use some work. Tires are shot.

I will get some more pictures tomorrow when I pick it up.

Nice score for a good price. Those have really grown on me over the years. I'm not sure why either.

My neighbor has one for sale and I was idlely day dreaming about buying it to LS3 swap it the other day.

I feel special that I got pictures of this earlier today.  Am I the only one that thinks pimpm3 secretly wants to grow a mullet?

The mileage is very suspect...  it also says it is an auto. I am stoked that it is actually manual.

Aren't there a lot of junkyard suspension upgrades for these?  Well that's the GM norm.  Let me know if you want to do a junkyard crawl.

Impressive find, Ive wanted one of these for a while. I've been told just because I think it would be 80s awesome I'd be disappointed.... Would make the perfect fly and drive challenge car.

I had an 87 T/A 305/auto from early 92 through April of 94. In retrospect I can't believe I thought it was fast...

That looks exceptionally clean compared to most, especially for that price!

Looks like a great deal!  I'm a sucker for the 4th gens, but it's hard to beat the visual appeal of the 3rd gens.

Man, 3rdgens are getting popular. I might need to bring mine out.

Looks like a pretty clean base to start with for the price. They seem to be skyrocketing lately.

Cowboy boots make everything better.  I'm sexy as hell naked with cowboy boots.  Not so much without.

I love 3rd gens. I'm actually a Chevy guy, who's never owned a Camaro, but has somehow managed to own three Mustangs!

Believe it or not this is my 1st 3rd gen Camaro.  I wanted one so bad in high school but the insurance was prohibitive.  I am excited to enter this in the radwood class.   

I would say it's hard to out radwood the nx2000 but nothing says 1980's more than a 3rd gen Camaro.

Also it was picked up today by the tow truck but I got tied up at work and was unable to get by the lot to mess with it.
