AJ’s Car of the Day: 1991 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Coupe

Car: Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Coupe

Year: 1991

What makes it special: Production for the 1991 Camaro started in February 1990. Big changes occurred, with Camaros receiving a facelift in the form of a ground effects package for not only RS but also the Z28 models, while the IROC-Z was no longer offered. The Z28 also featured a high rise spoiler and non-functional hood “blisters”. The CHSML was relocated from the spoiler to the top of the Hatch again like the 1986 models, except the housing was now on the inside rather than the outside of the hatch. The 1991 Z28 also received a new wheel design to accent the new body.

What made it famous: Z28’s now came standard with a 230 hp Port-Fuel-Injected 5.0 liter V8, while an optional 245 hp 5.7 liter V8 was offered on Z28 coupes. All engines were available with a 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic, except for the top 5.7 liter V8, which came only with the automatic.

Why I would want one: If you grew up a car fan in this time period, you saw these cars, and wanted one. They were just the epitome of cool.

Fun fact: The B4C “Special Service” option was made available to law enforcement, the government, and military agencies. The B4C amounted to little more than a Z28 powertrain and suspension in the RS.
