Baby — She runs like she looks I love my car. I have done a few modifications so she handles alot better than stock set up. A few upgrades to the engine and she is faster than the day she was born.

It Was Fun — The car was not real dependable. The performance was ok. However the appearance was pretty good though. Back then it was fun to drive. It would be horrible if you drove it now. Overall, it was a good car for that time.

It Was Fun — The car was sporty for the time. The performance was not that great. The appearance was good though. It was fun to drive. It was good for an early 70's car. But the new Camaro's are clearly a lot better. Overall it was an ok car.

Great American Muscle — Performace: Definatly will outrace most cars on the road. Appearance: Kickass Cost: insurance is crazy high, but totally worth it. Fun Factor: You feel like the Dukes of Hazard and totally unstopable. Build: Cant really say more than SAWEET RIDE.

'71 Camaro — Probably the coolest, BEAST looking carriage i ever owned. if not a vette, THIS would be the muscle car of choice IF i had the cash & room. It was pure 70s man!! Cragers, the works. But candy-apple red..it was sweeet!!

My 1971 Camaro — My 1971 Camaro was the base model with a 250 cubic inch L6, 3 speed automatic. The six cylinder was no great performer but it was reliable and fairly economical. The car handled well, after some upgrades and suspension modifications. It would have been better with a small block V8.
