1983 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 5.0 H.O. – Click above for image gallery

There's a disturbance in The Force. Darth Vader owned a blue Z28. Tell us the truth...you thought all of Vader's vehicles were black, right? Well, this particular vehicle of his shows that he has, or had, a bit of a sunnier, more playful side as well. This teal 1983 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 5.0 H.O. proves that the Dark Lord of the Sith must have had at least a smidgen of good left in him. How can you be pure evil and still drive an aqua Chevrolet Camaro? Can't be done.

Up for sale right now on eBay Motors UK with no reserve and a low £650 starting bid (about $1,000), this British offering would make a fun project for someone who has progressed beyond building X-Wing LEGO kits and 1/250 scale Millennium Falcons. The rare car (well, rare for Blighty, anyway) is said to have been owned by British actor David Prowse, the man inside Darth Vader's getup in the original trilogy, and it has 250,000 miles on its tired 5.0-liter H.O. V8 and will need to be towed. There's a bit of rust, but the body looks relatively straight and although it needs a tractor beam to move right now, it has a newer differential and should need just a carburetor to get back to running condition. Check out the listing on eBay Motors and the gallery of pics below. Thanks for the tip, Leo!

      Nice car!

      When I first read the title I thought it was James Earl Jones Camaro... oh well
      • 5 Years Ago
      good god, look at the size of those rear turn signals. though if our US cars had them, Americans probably still wouldn't use them...
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think for like a month, the government should get rid of the turn signal law and tell companies to offer them as an option...just for that month. Then see what percentage of owners actually check the turn signal box.

        And yes, those turn signals are massive.

      Wow, that is an atrocious interior. Wow. At least in makes the interior of the 2010 Camaro seem decent...
        • 5 Years Ago
        I don't think interior would matter to Lord Vader, given that our majesty can even bear having to wear his incredibly heavy mask all day.
        Only a foolish Jedi would crave for such travesty!

      This reinforces Jeremy Clarkson's statement that only murders drive Camaros.

      David Prowse, not Prouse.

        I can't believe your correction was comment #18. I'm too much of a Star Wars nut, apparently. I expected the spelling correction to be comment #0.

      Hey, you're never tool old to build with Legos.

      Great article, I did think that everything Vader owned was black, once again I have been proven wrong LOL.
