1978 Z28 — nice sporty muscle car. 4sp trans and 3:73 gears make for fun drive. no ac so hot days aren't fun when stuck in traffic but the old 8track tapes make up for it! haha. conversion piece wherever you go.

It's just a surprisingly fun car to drive.

Cons

Fisher Body car! Rusting problems

A Very Underestimated Car. — What I really love about this car is the styling. Second Generation Camaros are my favorite. For having a 305, automatic transmission, and 30+ year old suspension, it can really kick ass! It's just a work in progress which I am thinking about selling, but I'm not too sure. I would really like to get a 2006 Pontiac GTO or a 1993 GMC Typhoon.

Powerful — This car was inexpensive and a nice buy. I love driving it and restoring it to it's former glory with my dad. The legacy of Camaros has always made me look in amiration at them and when I'm older I would like a newer Camaro SS.

I Would Buy Another One In A Heartbeat! — this car is very fun to drive, right now theres not much as far as performance goes, but there will be soon. This is a very charasmatic car she has a personality of her own, overall no major problems. Shes in fairly rough shape but all the problems can be fixed, just needs time and money, she has the love from her owner, just doing as much as I can with what I have

Best Rice Eater Ever — its awesome car to drive i can whup up on any hondas or toyota that gets in my way and it is very easy to drive considering the steel body. the only thing that sucks is the motor was tired when i got it so not much left in it
