It's no secret that today's car collectors buy the cars that they grew up with. It explains the muscle car boom, and it will unquestionably lead to cars like this 1979 Camaro Z/28 being collectable and highly-sought in the not-so-distant future. When you throw in all of the documentation that comes along with this car including the original build sheet, resto photos/receipts, and owner's manual it's sure to be a collectible in the near future.

There's no question this is a real, matching-numbers Z/28, and it's in great condition. The dark blue paint is a pleasant diversion from the more familiar white and black Zs out there, and the over-the-top looks are definitely cool today, with this one being one of the more palatable combinations today. Neatly integrated front and rear fascias successfully updated the second-generation design, keeping it fresh and giving it a new lease on life. Other details like the NACA-inspired hood scoop and side "gills" are the kinds of things that are popular even today, so this Z isn't the anachronism you'd expect. No, this is a great-looking vintage muscle car that gets a ton of attention everywhere it goes.

The '70s weren't only about outrageous colors and shag carpet, as the handsome, upscale interior ably demonstrates. Looking like it was borrowed from a much more expensive car, the handsome bucket seat interior looks fresh thanks to new seat covers and carpets, while things like the door panels might just be original. Soft surfaces and high-back buckets make it inviting, and it comes with a full array of factory gauges plus a trio of aftermarket dials under the center of the dash. Even the steering wheel, which emulates the string-wrapped wheels of the '30s, is in outstanding condition. And to help you enjoy the ride, this car features factory A/C that blows cold and strong and an AM/FM stereo that still works as intended. The trunk carries what might be original carpets and at least part of an original jack assembly.

The numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood was standard equipment in the Z/28, and making 175 horsepower and a very respectable 270 pounds of torque (remember this was 1979). It was fully rebuilt to stock specs in 2012, so it runs extremely well and by using factory equipment like a Quadra-Jet carburetor it looks right, idles smoothly, and drives like it should. There's new corporate blue paint on the block and lots of new hardware throughout, making this a Camaro that's ready to go with no tinkering required. A Magnaflow dual exhaust system sounds fantastic and replaces the original catalytic converter equipped single setup for a bit more power. The original Muncie M21 4-speed manual still lives behind the rejuvenated engine and feeds the stock 10-bolt rear with 3.73s inside. Factory SS wheels that were color-matched to the bodywork offer a clean look and carry newer 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.

Time is running out, these cars are the Next Big Thing. Take this beautiful example home and relive your youth. Call today!
