1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS
Everybody loves a winner or wants to look like one. That's sort of
the story behind the Chevrolet Camaro's RS designation. The first
Rally Sport models appeared in 1967, the inaugural year of the
Camaro. Chevy's response to the wildly popular Mustang offered as
many options as its rival pony car over at Ford. With the right
model to start with, the RS package was once the icing on the cake
of a well optioned Camaro.
For consignment, a 1992 version of the Camaro RS complete with its
silver bowtie designation. Yup it's a shower and a fun driver, but
always put away in the garage after a cruise like a favorite toy in
the box. Teal Blue, plenty of aero fairings on the lower body, and
a small tasteful white thin stripe at the belt line adding some
highlight to this otherwise monotone but stunning car.
A long front hood is extended even longer with the front neoprene
crash bumper, dual horizontal rectangular inset headlights and the
v shaped grille with a low ground effects spoiler. Black trimmings
for the glass and rocker fairings with some inlets near the rear
wheel well add to the low aero look. A curved greenhouse like glass
is for the sloping rear and it ends up into a spoiler which frames
wraparound trio lighting and a RS bowtie badged bumper, all painted
in Dark Teal Blue Metallic which is the diving board end of the
pool (ie.deeeeep!). 16-inch machined cast rally wheels are wrapped
in Goodyear Eagle GT II tires all around.
A swing of the classic long doors and we are met with gray padded
tweed broadcloth, a black plastic panel with the door actuator and
power lock button. A sleek molded gray armrest/door pull is
attached, and some gray carpeting is just below finishing off the
door panels. Inside more tweed broadcloth in gray which matched the
panels of the doors, along with some smooth gray inserts make up
the pattern for the front buckets which are high back and have
headrests. These are very clean as are the rear 2 plus 2 seats in
the same pattern and color way with the hump dividing the two seats
which share a common seat back. If you look real close, you'll see
just slight wear on the outside bolster on the driver's seat. A
black console races through the buckets to the dash and houses a
storage box /armrest, window toggles and rear glass/deck switch
release. The shift lever is here and as our eyes climb to the
center of the dash, we see a factory AM/FM/Cassette radio with an
EQ within and temperature controls. The dash which is very clean
has eye grabbing black faced gauges with yellow numerals and yellow
pointers. Not even a speck of dust is noted here. Carpet is gray,
and clean, as is the upper headliner, nice and tight too. A shout
out to the rear storage area that opens up from the B pillar
rearward and offers up two-tiered storage compartments and is also
lined with very clean gray carpeting. The side panel also doubles
as the speaker holder.
Let's lift the hood, and here we can see a factory correct, very
well cared for, and with the easy miles as expected, near showroom
condition engine. Within the confines of the engine bay is a 305ci
V8 which is fed by EFI and has a 700R4 4-speed automatic
transmission on back. A 10-bolt rear is reserved for the axle.

Slight surface rust on some of the usual suspects, but certainly
all unremarkable. Factory blue overspray is still on the floor
pans. Upfront independent suspension with coil springs and for the
back a torque arm setup with coil springs. Power disc brakes are on
front, and power drums are reserved for the rear.
This car fired right up and was eager to get on the test track.
Here it performed like I was out of the showroom and on my test
drive from the dealership. All encompassing power, smooth automatic
shifting, and bias free panic stopping. I noticed the radio was
Essentially a sports car with a roomy greenhouse glass hatchback,
all in racy Camaro RS trim. Beautifully preserved interior, and
perfectly aligned steel panels all bathed in that wonderful eye
catching Dark Teal Blue Metallic. I'm hungry for a Mustang, who's
