2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 SS 35th Anniversary Convertible
History is full of rivalries between two strong competitors like
Coke vs. Pepsi, AT&T vs. MCI, Nike vs. Reebok, and Bill Gates
vs. Steve Jobs. In almost every case, the competition and the drive
to outdo a rival resulted in the production of superior products by
both companies and benefited the consumer with high quality and
lower prices. The rivalry between the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ford
Mustang has run for more than a half a century with similar
results. Both vehicles, rear-wheel-drive, 2 plus 2 American sports
coupes began their battle for customers starting in the 1960s, and
each has had its ups and downs. Except for a Camaro hiatus from
2003 to 2010, each year has brought a new model with features
designed to surpass the competition. The seemingly inexhaustible
attraction of inexpensive V8 horsepower, sports car road handling,
and stylish good looks has permitted the classic American pony car
civil war to continue well into the 21st century.
For consignment, a 35th anniversary car celebrating the Camaro SS
and with a mere 23 actual miles on the odometer, this car is as new
as they come. From the plastic on the seats to the still attached
window sticker and SLP sticker you can't get any newer.
This car screams SLP and anniversary options with it all bathed in
Bright Red. The front grille is slightly modified and has dual wide
white racing stripes starting at the bottom of the front spoiler
and moving towards the windshield where at the hood scoop it splits
and fades into a checkered flag. The grille is slightly different,
and an SS badge is neatly put in the very low center of said
grille. Chevrolet is known for their rakish styling on the front
glass, and this car is no exception with that windshield leaning
way back in this design. On top is a nice canvas convertible, all
clean and sporting a rear glass window. On the sides straight steel
with well minded gaps creates the front and rear quarters, (badged
with 35th anniversary badges BTW!). The wide stripes continue on
the rear deck where there is a wide spoiler that is very low
profile. 17" 10 spoke SS specific aluminum wheels are on all 4
corners. Dual exhaust peek out from under the body matching
neoprene bumper. All paint is at the deep end of the pool and looks
showroom perfect throughout.
A swing of the sexy doors and we get loads of black molded smooth
vinyl, integrated door pulls with a matching charcoal gray
actuator, and plenty of power toggles to play with. Inside 2 tone
gray leather high back buckets showing no wear and still having
their assembly line plastic coverings wait for the passengers to
sit down and enjoy the ride. A center console undulates by these
buckets and houses the Hurst shifter, (another SLP option).
Shoehorned in back are two more molded in two tone buckets with not
a lot of legroom but they are there. A nice tonneau cover is
provided for the top when in the down position. The center of the
dash rises to the occasion with a premium sound system including
AM/FM/CD, climate controls, top power switch and an ASR, (traction
control), button. A beautifully and gracefully arched dash top in
front of the driver has all the essential gauges and warnings
should something go awry during your performance drive. Charcoal
gray carpeting floods the floors and the steering wheel still is
covered in its factory plastic.
The factory 346ci V8 has been warmed up by the folks at SLP to the
tune of 345hp. It is fed by EFI and has a T56 6-speed manual
transmission on the back. The rear axle is a 10-bolt 3.42
posi-traction setup. They don't get any cleaner than this.
Beautifully preserved with factory overspray still seen on floor
pans and fuel tank. SLP performance exhaust is now on, and this car
has a fab tone when fired up. Handling is courtesy front
independent Macpherson struts with coil springs and rear is torque
arm with coil springs. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
With the odometer hanging at a scant 23 miles, we didn't dare drive
this beauty. But rest assured, sitting in it one can take in the
new car smell and envision what it was like to proudly drive one
off the dealership lot back in 2002.
A dual advantage to this particular car with its anniversary
edition bling and the extra performance of the SLP package we have
a very hot car with an unassuming look and the ability to eat up
cars that look way more aggressive. A wolf in sheep's clothing.
