Sean's 78 Camaro Z28

Should we leave the wheels grey or paint them body color?

  • Leave grey

  • Paint blue to match the body car, the way the car was when new

Sunday morning I cleaned up the truck and drove out to the storage to get the Roadmaster out of jail for a few days. On the way home I spotted this. I figured this was as good a place to post it as any....

No, not Sean's car. I do think it was a 78 but with it not being a Z, it's a little hard to tell. I'm pretty sure he still had the TH350 in the car because he wasn't getting down the road very fast. I thought it was a pretty odd choice for pulling a jet ski but it's great to see another survivor out there being enjoyed.

No real updates on Sean's car. All good. Routine maintenance coming soon. We just have an overabundance of projects. That's it for now friends.

The not going fast was probably because the owner was overloaded and knew it.

Can't speak offhand to a 78 even though I used to own a 78z as well, but, I know earlier 70s camaros maxed out at 1000lb towing due to the unibody not having any dedicated rails built in to distribute towing weight. It was just stress into the rear sheetmetal, gm knew it, and slapped a super low gcwr on there.

Seadoo weighs in 600-1000# without a trailer. Then add the weight of that trailer in there.

Sean took the car to get inspected this morning. He sent me a text from the inspection place....
