Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
Sleek, stock, powerful, and affordable, this 1998 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is the loaded, two-owner drop-top that's also part of a new class of classics.
This is a great year to collect a Camaro. It was the final evolution of the 4th gen with an upgraded design and a more powerful V8 under the hood. So it's great to find one as well-preserved as this example. The Bright Red paint has the look an aggressive sports car needs, and there's a glossy finish that shows this one has been treated with care. The reason for that is it's a two-owner, and the second owner has babied it for over two decades. He made the right investments in the car to keep it looking right, and this includes a partial repaint and a new convertible top. It makes for a crisp and clear car where you can see the right details. This includes the pieces that make this such a distinctive young classic, like the hood curves created by the updated headlights, sleek profile, and well-integrated rear spoiler.
The black top looks attractive against the red paint, and when you take down the top, you get the same kind of attractive darkness from the charcoal interior. The supple leather gives this a nice style, and you can see there has been the right mix of preservation and investment to keep this looking good. In fact, the odometer reflects relatively low mileage for the car's age, and the overall condition reaffirms this feeling of less use than its contemporaries. This has all the best amenities, like a power driver's seat, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power driver's seat, cup holder center console, tilt wheel, and a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer. Owning a modern classic also means modern safety, including dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. But the factory features you are likely going to like the best are the power windows and power convertible top. They work together so that you can open this Camaro up to the world without ever leaving the driver's seat. And the cold-blowing air conditioning means you can even enjoy this open-top experience even in the summer.
The 1998 Z/28 is sought-after because you were now upgraded to the 5.7-liter LS1 V8. That's what makes this such an instant classic. With 305 horsepower right out of the box, this is a fuel-injected speed machine. But the full driving experience reminds you this one was built to offer the right balance of performance and comfort. It starts with the four-speed automatic transmission. This is quick with a kick-down to release the power, and it's also happy to cruise on the highway in overdrive. Plus, cruise control and power steering make the long haul easy. And the four-wheel disc brakes and sway bars front & rear are great to open up the backroads.
The moment you drive this one, you can feel the solid feeling that tells you this has been given the right respect all its life. So if you're looking for a true classic that delivers true performance - all without breaking the bank - call today!
