    Default Found a C8 I didn't know existed

    Found this on another forum, apparently it is located in Chesterfield, MI near
    blue dog party store at 21 and gratiot
    where ever that is.



    This car is having SERIOUS body panel fit issues. Looks like it may all be due to the hood.



    The photographer said,
    it has 1085 on the clock looked like all fresh panels, paint was terrible, and the interior was ****ed for the miles it has..
    and
    it is pretty sad but what are you gunna do. even the under chassis is rusted up.


    It appears to me that is isn't painted. It has a vinyl wrap on it. That is why it appears that the rear end is carbon fiber, when it is not.



    Even though it isn't in good shape, it's nice to see a blue one. I only have one very small pic of a blue one in the Middle East and now these.

    I don't know.

    The people on the message board I found this on, were commenting that it was parked out front of different places like an advertisement.

    I just realized I forgot to post the interior picture. The interior has the stock (optional) leather seats for a Camaro Z28, they aren't the Callaway type.

    You ain't kiddin'. Michigan has the BEST Camaro gatherings and shows of any state. And it seems like there have been at least 3 C8s in that area.

    It's a real shame it's a completely unappealing place to live from my viewpoint. I mean... it gets this strange white stuff in the winter. Who would want that?

    Hey Brandon,

    I think this is the same car that was silver with the Coors Light sponsor on it. I also think this car is actually not painted blue, but covered with an entire blue decal like busses and most NHRA cars today. If you look around the vent openings, you can still see the silver paint. Also on the tail shot, you can see the surfacing of the decal. I heard this car was a stock engine car with an AeroBody. I could be wrong on this.

    Regards,

    Anthony

    You might be right. Both are in Michigan, but it's hard to say. I only have one shot of the Coors one, and no further info.


    The interior of the blue one has a SNAT emblem on the center console, so it seems to me like it likely has one.

    If it's the same car, it sucks to say it, but it looked better in silver than blue. That shade of blue isn't good for it. And it's a shame the hood isn't fitted properly. It looks like it needs new plastic hood stops.

    Found some more pics. I had to photoshop them to brighten them up.

    They're high res and show a lot of the car's flaws sadly. It's obvious this car hasn't been garaged in quite some time. It's looking its age.

    Brandon, look at the funny antenna thing on the silver car. It is the same car. It lookes kind of whipped. I saw this car once when it was silver, and the interior was looking very tired. It also was corooded underneath from the Michigan salt. I tried to buy it, but had no luck.

    I think it is mildly funny/coincidental that this blue car is located in Chesterfield, MI, and the teal C8 was located in Chesterfield, SC. I need to find a Chesterfield, TX.

    Good eye Anthony, I didn't notice that the antennas were the same.

    Oh, by the way, the nose was pieced together after a light front hit. That is why the fit is so poor.

    Do you know that for a fact?

    If you're basing it on the discolored lines along the front bumper, I believe those are the edges of overlapping vinyl. The rear has one down the middle that looks like slime pouring out of the lock.

    LOL, I think if we find one anywhere for you, you should jump on it! Let me know when you are finally ready and I will help you any way I can.

    I am basing that on what somebody told me. Look at the grille, it is still bent, and the C8 badge is now missing. Also, the headlight support is all crooked. But in the scheme of front end hits, it is light compared to my latest!
