Clean — Bought this one 17 years ago for a couple hundred bucks. Spent the majority of its life sitting and was severely sun damaged but no rust and only 30,000 kms on it. 7 year restoration to show room condition with the exception of a bunch more horsepower and no anti smog gear. Something wrong in the rear, the back tires keep going bald!!!

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.

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

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.
