For those of you that do not know why the Z/28 came to be, it was to participate in the 5 liter class in the SCCA Trans Am racing series. This little 302 was heavily underrated at 290 horsepower. Built to full racing specs, these little 302s could produce near the 500 horsepower mark! Racing teams would acid dip the bodies to shed any unnecessary weight and fit them with full roll cages, racing suspensions and soft compound tires for extra grip. The Z/28 Camaros were racing against the Boss 302, AMC Javelin and the AAR Cuda to name a few. Mark Donohue piloted the Penske racing team Camaro in 1969 winning the last 6 races in the season making him and the car, the season's champion.
