She's a 10 sec 1/4 that will do 130 mph in a blink of an eye.

625Hp 7000rpm SR MKIV/M21/3:73 12 bolt posi under pump gas.

A beautiful and dangerous car if you don't know what you're doing. She's NO PC Game. I know, because I built her.

She may be "Sweet" and pretty, but a dangerous and deadly brute hulk to handle.

Just imagine filling her up with pump gas in a Petro-Can gas station and everyone gather's around her.

Sweet and lovely car mean while you gotta go for a shit - LOL.

Do you want to open this door?

you can tune an engine for mileage, just like you tune it for power.

Nice Camaro, a 70 was the first car I ever owned myself in 77 and it didn't look that good or near as hot. Mine at the time would maybe get close to 13's. It wasn't a Z but was a bit over cammed, etc.

I hope your adopted son isn't too young, that is a lot of car.

I let one of my female cousins drive it once at a family event, it pretty much scared her to death almost the first time she let the clutch out.

Beautiful ride, anything special done to the suspension?
YES

Salt is a killer - Gotta kept her clean and if you don't have a garage forget it.

Of course she would burn a tank of gas and all the tyers off her in 20 minutes and go nowhere.

But on the Hi-Hwy got better gas mileage then a modern EFI Ford F150 1/2 ton, providing you stick to the speed limit and don't twitch the gas pedal.

After all she's a 1970.

Yes the 70Z appeared late in February of 71 and came with the Low Spoiler but by March you could buy the 3 Piece Hi-Spoiler from any GM Dealer - Still considered as original - My Z28 came original with the single piece low spoiler, white stripes and 4:10's - Who gives a ^%$#.

The motor is not the original SFT 375Hp LT1 but a 625 Hp SR 7000 rpm 460ci BBC MKIV/M21 to a 3:73 12 Bolt Posi.

Eat your heart out Baldwin - Would not mind a 70Z 240 Datsun with an 8000 425 Hp SB Chevy 331ci but then I almost built a 74 Volvo with that mill with a Jaguar XKE suspension - Still have the parts minus the car: unless, I put out for an AC Cobra Body ;p)

Did you not like your adopted son? ():)

I kid... that is a lot of motor man. I hope he is the reserved type. How old is he? Car is nice, revs pretty high too. :thumbsup:

Killer ride, like it very much! The only thing that could make it better is mini-tubs and more rubber in the back! :D

I loved the British Austin (Anglia) Mini Cooper - Drove one in the Canadian Winter in the early 70's - All you need is a quart of hot water poured over them SU's to get her started.

I'm Old School.

As far a gas mileage goes with that BBC 70Z would cruise with better gas mileage then a modern Ford 150 1/2 ton on the open range = Just don't tweak the throttle. Of course the Mini would burn a liter of gas in a month and just as much FUN.

bag of crap?
Your no mechanic and clueless.

She is absolutely gorgeous. Beauty and the Beast all in one.

My dad had a 70 1/2 Z28 with side pipes when I was very young (a baby, not even a toddler). He tells me stories about how he used to take me for rides in the Camaro to help me sleep, lol.
