When I was around five years old I seen a car and I asked my dad what car it was. He said "that's a Camaro" and I told him that's the car I want when I grow up. Fast forward 10 years and I purchased my first car, a 1991 RS Camaro. I tried to buy a IROC-Z so bad but couldn't find a good one for my budget. I enjoyed that RS but I was never happy knowing it's not what I really wanted. Time passed by and I had thoughts of doing a engine swap if I didn't upgrade to a IROC-Z in the future. College and life came into play and I stored the car in the garage as I had to move out of state. Yes in the meantime I did have other cars but always kept my third gen Camaro. Every time I would get a chance I was on Craigslist searching for a convertible IROC-Z. I wanted a T-Top at first but knew after owning a few other 4th gens this Camaro's if I ever find it would be different. I would see a few but it wasn't the right color and I already went through painting my RS and I wanted to buy one with the original color I wanted and it's a must RED. One day I finally found one in Hunnington beach in so cal. It was more than I wanted to spend but I did the calculations on what it would cost me to buy one at a lower price and fix it to its original state. I made the trip down there and met with the owner, a old retired guy that owned the car since 1990. Man it was garage kept and I was trying to keep my cool on how good it looked so I can try to negotiate a good deal. I gave my offer and he refused so I walked away, but soon after he called me back and we made the deal. The whole drive back I was so happy thinking to myself damn I finally got the car I always wanted. I finally make it back to SF and started tearing the RS apart in the the garage and sell it for parts and make room for the IROC-Z. I didn't want to sell it I really had it crushed. I just didn't want anyone ever owning my RS. I kept the steering wheel and sold everything else except for the shell of course. Do to the sun the IROC-Z did need a steering wheel since it was a little faded and I had a really good one that was flawless from my RS. Everything I'm in the IROC-Z it's like my RS but way better. I finally have my dream car I always wanted, yes I want to change a few things but it's too nice and I would feel like I'm ruining it. It even has the stock exhaust system. A lot of people always ask me why don't I add a aftermarket exhaust and like I said before I have had so many other cars and own a few other ones that have a upgraded cam and cutout in the exhausts so I have that already, why do I need to change it on this nice drop top that is all factory. I took it to the drag strip just to have fun. I have a video on YouTube of it, and finally was able to host my own third generation Camaro cruise like I always wanted to do but had issues with my RS and the IROC-Z made it happen.
