1984 Camaro IROC - Rubber-Band-Powered Iroc Camaro

This '84 Iroc Can Tear Up The Strip And The Street.

Backing that rubber band motor is a Select Performance TH400 with a 10-inch 5,000-stall converter, aluminum driveshaft, and Dana 60 spool. Perhaps the most unusual feature of this IROC is the three-lever Hurst Lightning Rod shifter. It's not too often that you see these style shifters, especially in rocket ships running the quarter-mile in a best of 9.57 at 137 mph. Harold was happy to give me a ride, and I must say, I felt like a 5-year-old, because it took more than a little self control to keep from pulling the levers.

Out back, placing the rubber on the road are 15x15 HoleShot bead-locked wheels and 22.5 DOT Hoosier tires. Here at Super Chevy, we put feature cars through their paces, specifically this one. While shooting, we had Harold make about 20 laps around Englishtown's road course. Now there's something you don't see every day: 22.5-inch tires, a giant blower, and skinny fronts taking a high bank with ease. Up front sit Weld Aluma Star wheels (15x3.5) encased in Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires.

On the inside, Harold wanted his Camaro to retain as much of the stock appeal as possible, so he kept with the OEM theme from the 1980s. Two-tone gray doors and side panels, and black factory carpets are original pieces that Anthony Muselli from Perfect Ten refurbished and retained, as well as a modified console.

Finishing up the people carrier are two black-vinyl JAZ Racing seats and Auto Meter Phantom gauges.
