    Hit a puddle @ about 40 mph going around a turn, hydroplaned and fishtailed. I almost recovered it, but the road was so wet it was like driving on ice, and it just slung around the other direction....and straight into the front of a Caravan. :rant2: Luckily the worst injury was the guy driving the Caravan's broken toe. :hs:

    and the Caravan that hit me...

    Now I am looking for another car, I have found a 1997 Z28 which the owner claims is a 30th anniversary, but I thought all 30th anniversary editions came with distinctive paint. :dunno: Anyone know for sure?

    Doh!

    Least everybody is ok!

    technically, all '97 Camaro's are "30th Anniversary"... However, the 30th Anniversary Edition Camaro's are white with orange stripes.

    would you be interested in pulling parts off your car and selling them?

    in '97 I think ANY Z28 that had leather came with the "30th Anniversary"
    logo in the seat... so they were all 30th Anniversary cars... but only the ones with that were white with teh orange stripes were Anniversary edition cars...

    on a side note, if you are looking for a little more heat under the hood, go looking for a '97 SS with the LT4... they were rare, but they were fast... :) almost got one.. but I had just bought my truck and at age 22, couldn't afford both payments... :(

    It was my fault, but I got no ticket. I'll look into that SS, but I probably won't be able to afford it either.

    Possum Stomper - I can't get to the car anymore, insurance has already taken it. It was completely stock anyway.

    We are talking rare on the LT4 cars. Only 100, all are hardtops.

    And all 97 Camaros had 30th etched into the headrest. Even the cloth seat cars.


    What kind of money do you have to spend, I assume around 12K based on you looking at a 97 Z

    Sucks to hear about your car, I know the feeling I totaled my '98 SS in the rain. Good luck on a replacement, I'd recomend stepping up to a '98+ with the LS1. You should be able to find some Z28's or formulas in the 10k+ range.

    I have found a replacement already possum, but I haven't purchased anything yet. Send me and email or pm with info and a pic or two.

    Wes: The fire hydrant was years ago and I was being stupid in my mustang. I obviously learned my lesson there b/c I don't do all that stupid shit anymore and I drive F-Bodies now, not POS Rustangs. :fawk:

    Yeah it will beat my stock F-body, AFTER you put those gears, a new cam, rocker arms, Trick Flow upper and lower intake, mass air conversion and anything else you have laying around your house on the car...if it doesn't, then you need to go back to driver's ed. If you really want a race though, Brandon would be willing to run you in his F-body, that might actually be a close race after you get all that shit on...I wanna see it.
