1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z 5.7 V8 petrol from North America
Entire cooling system needs re-built.
Full exhaust replacement.
Bodywork is awful paintwork-wise, not much rust though which is good.
I could list more but would be here all day.
Always liked these cars, in IROC-Z style they have great colors and wheels. Mine is black with the original alloy wheels.
Since watching Knight Rider as a kid, and now an adult, I have messed about with F-body's from the time period, this is not a Firebird to be exact, but is my favorite so far due to its color. I plan to rebuild this car to original status, not going to do any crazy mods.
The 5.7 V8 is strong even with the auto, not really fast by today's standards, but better than a V6.
Cannot wait for summer projects like this to begin, have been putting this off since the start of the pandemic, will definitely get into rebuilding this car this summer. My dreams of driving 1980's cars in their original condition will come true. Nostalgia factor with this car is off the scale.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Please tell us why the entire cooling system needs to be rebuilt.

I didn't write the original review but have done cooling systems on older cars and usually it includes;
New radiator / fan.
Water pump and thermostat.
And of course the engine itself has to be in good health, no leaking head gaskets or things like that. Definitely all things to check on a 30+ year old car with over 100,000 miles.

Probably everything will be worn in some way as expected after three decades.
