This Car Is Great — i like the fact that my camaro is built just perfectly to run great and be very fast. but its body is not in the greatest condition right now it needs alot of work. this car would be so much better if i had money to invest into it.

Don't Let This Be Your First Car Or You'll Be Ruined For Life — I was 15 in 1987 when I got this car, and it was love at first sight. Absolutely everything fell apart on this car, but I didn't care. I loved it. Now I'm married to a Ford Taurus, and she is about to bore me to death! I sure could use a fling with my old Camaro. 350 with 3 speed auto in the floor. Black with tan interior. The sound, the feel...I'll never forget her. Just don't tell my Taurus.

My 1978 Z28 Camaro — I love my camaro. It's a very pretty car. It runs well. I just don't like it when people don't like my car and decide to do something about it. The only bad thing about my camaro is the gas mileage. It is horrible. I get about 10- 14 miles to the gallon. I think i need a 5 speed. I need A/C in it as well. It's not fun driving it in the hot summer days, but i kinda have to. Its my only car.

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.
