    Great looking car for sure but I would go black interior or go with the red upgraded to the factory custom interior, its a huge improvement and still factory ?

    Man I’d much prefer a black interior. Already have a new red headliner, doorpanels, and carpet purchased though. Plus I’m a bit of a stickler for keeping it mostly original

    I’m like that. It’s gotta be original. If the car came from factory in electric pink with Dora the Explorer stitched into the interior I’d just have to keep it that way lol. The other side of my brain wants nothing more than to ad a 427 to the car and black interior

    If you put the custom interior seats and door panels, it will look great in red too. I'd go with a 70 Lt1 in there with a 5 spd and that would be a nice upgrade but still Z28 classy

    Ya I guess it wouldn’t take away too much of the originality if I sprung for the deluxe seat covers

    Ya but I want it very original. Light cam, work on the heads, etc I think is my limit. If I was gonna mod a second gen completely I’d put a zr1 driveline in. By “I’d” I really mean that I’d pay someone else who actually has those skills to do it lol

    I'm pretty close, had ordered the 80Z 2 years out of high school. Took my now wife to her grad in that car. Now have a 70Z to live out those days !

    Lol oh the glorious memories of days gone by. Police chases, beer bashes, classy ladies touring the back seat. Wouldn’t change a thing. Glad i got this car
