  1. Debbie says:

    I had a 1986 sport coupe camaro.  I know that I put the gas in underneath the rear plate.  My husband says this is not at all possible since all the photos we see of 1986 camaros have the tank on the driver side.  Is it possible that I put the gas in under the rear plate (I know I did but he does not believe me)  Thanks

  2. James says:

    Debbie, 
    My parents bought a 1986 IROC Camaro when I was 6 years old and still own it to this day.  I'm guessing you thought you filled the gas tank from behind the license plate because you often did lower the license plate, but that would be to unlock the truck.  Behind the rear license plate was the keyhole to open the trunk.  The gas tank was always located on the drivers side.

  3. Cody says:

    it was second generation 70-81 camaros that was in the back, but it wasnt behind the license plate

  4. Scott says:

    I have a 1986 IROC and the gas fill is on drivers side. James is correct, the hatchback lid release keyhole is the only thing under license plate.

  5. matt says:

    Hi, im thinking of getting an 80s model camaro, I have a 350ci engine with an aftermarket cam and vortec heads that i want to put in it. any suggestions of a model to go with  that would be easy to find but still easily accept and handle the new engine.

  6. Donald says:

    @Debbie. the trunk lock is under the rear plate the gas is on drivers side.

  7. Spence G. says:

    I just bought an ’86 Z28 IROC-Z with the t-tops in Flame Red Metallic. Considering I’ve wanted one of these my whole life, I’m pretty much in a constant state of ecstasy.
