Pros

Very fun to drive and preforms wonderfully

Cons

Maintenance costs and mileage could be better.

It's Amazing. — Since I got the carburetor replaced this car runs like a dream. It accelerates at a pretty good rate but i havent gotten a chance to time it yet. The brakes are a little tough but it balances out with the fact that this car handles better than my dads BMW 330i. Its solidly built with only a few squeaks and rattles. The exterior is in fairly good condition but it could use a new paint job and the interior has been totally redone (dash, ceiling, carpet) with the exception of the seats which could use some touching up. The gas mileage isnt great but what do you expect from a '69? Maintenance ran a little high for a while but once the carburetor got replaced it has dropped considerably. This car is beyond fun to drive, its not even describable.

needs modern suspension and drive train

Great Muscle Car, One Of The Best Looking And Very Fun To Drive — Great performing muscle car with great lines. Mine was very similar to the one in the picture, except whilte and blue. My mom bought the car after graduating community college. What a blast to drive in high school! It was a base model 307 automatic. Future garage plans include a black and white 1967 SS Camaro and a midnight blue matalic and black 1969 Corvette. Optimal versions of the vehicles would have state-of-the-art suspension and drive train.

Very Good Cars If U Take Care Of Them — proformance is very good if u keep good maintnence. does have alot of power and tourqe. the cost of owning a camaro around 150 to 180 for insurance. these cars are very fun to drive once u get used to the steering cuz it is touchy.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very loud

Very Fun — It has 430HP and it climbs past 560 at over 5k rpm. It runs on High Octane fuel which is 5-6dollars a gallon. This car is very quick and fun to drive on the street, and a drag strip.

Looks Fast Even When Parked — I went thru an ugly divorce and lost all interest in finishing it. It only needs fiberglass front end bolted together, seats and a Ford to Chevy driveshaft to complete. I have over $7000 of brand new after market high performance parts.

Pros

69' has always been my favorite year!

Cons

Build quality is crappy most of the time.  Even OE certified parts never fit right!

The Money Pit! — Purchased in 97' for way to much. I was young and didn't realize the mess I was getting myself into! The $100 paint job hid most of the body work problems and the thorough cleaning hid all the mechanical problems! I drove it for 3 years and then trashed the passenger quarter panel. After nine years of sheet metal replacement, new suspension, engine, interior work, It was finally painted it in Nov 08'. In June 09' I finally had it put back together. Lots of help from my brothers Joe and Rob! Engine is a sb 350 from an 89' Police Interceptor. Stock engine with the TBI removed and tapped for a Performer manifold and a Holley 670. Tranny is a stock TH350 from a Buick with a one legger 10 bolt out back. Performance is so so. My next project after re-wiring the dash is complete new powertrain. Suspension upgrades are minor. Replaced single leafs in back for 4 leafs, front drop springs, new Koni shocks all around, oversized sway bars front and back.16" custom Weld rims with BFG G-Force KDWs.

Wins 1st place at every car show, gets looks every time it leaves the garage.

Cons

Can't drive it much to keep the miles under 24,000.

Badass Bowtie — This is one of the sweetest 69 Camaros you'll ever see. 100% original, every nut and bolt from the front to rear bumper. Only thing ever changed were belts and hoses, and tires.

Pros

Its Fast

Cons

you pretty much have to stop to take a corner

35

Any Quessions — Ok this is defiantly one of the fastest cars on the street in a straight line, does not corner at all!!!It was built with no expense spared and just looks bad ass!! The gas mileage is 1km to 1 liter of fuel if you are no on the throttle. It is the most fun you can have in driving a car as far as i am censored.
