GM’s bulletproof and powerful 5.0 liter V8 with Tuned-Port Injection was the standard engine on the IROC, and was more than competitive with the Ford unit from across town. As a small block Chevy, it’s also insanely easy to modify, which also explains why so many Camaros went to meet their makers prematurely. Fortunately, this one is all stock and recently rebuilt (along with the transmission) and it runs beautifully. Turn the key and it fires quickly, settling into a cackling V8 idle that suits the flashy muscle car perfectly. Lots of fresh maintenance parts under the hood means that this one has been loved, and thanks to a lifetime in the warm, dry south, the chassis is impressively tidy for being more than 30 years old. The original 16-inch alloys are in excellent condition with no curb rash and wear 245/50/16 BFGoodrich performance radials.
