Fun To Drive! — Love this car! What else is there to say. Great looking and super fun to drive! I always get great looks when driving. In my opinion this was the best Camaro style ever. And this color combination is nice. LOVE IT.

First Project Car — One of the best looking camaros of all gens. Vacuum system is a nightmare. This has factory A/C and I haven't even started on getting that to work. Trying to get brakes solid so I can get mufflers and cat replaced

1980 Camaro Z-28 (350) — Great: handling, acceleration, style, verry fun to drive! Good: breaks, interior, overall quality. Poor: Gas mileage, heal to toe ration on gas peddle.

Joels Z28 — barely needs repairs, paint is original, this car is amazing to drive to beat those imports to the ground. It can do 0-60 in 4.1 seconds, braking system is front discs and rear drums and it handles nice with my new tires on her.

Great Car Not Recamended For New Drivers. — Performance - acceleration is great, gets right off the line no problem, braking is okay as it is but i need to replace the master cylinder and bleed them alot, handling is great very surprised Build Quality - has it needed repairs? needed no major repairs Appearance - out side need paint and inside needs a new dash witch i have and will be puting in as soon as i get the other car parted out Cost of Ownership - gas mileage sucks on this car its a 305 5.0L and i plan i to put proformence heads, cam, intake, carb, roller rockers. and .100 longer push rods. Fun Factor -this car is the funnest car i think in driving. the back end if you pin it will start sliding to your right and it drifts great. btw i am only 17 and this is my first car.

Pros

They are overall a nice design and there are not that maney of them left so they are not common.

Cons

They have a tendency to have alot of rust in the rear frame rails and floor pans.

They Were The Cars Of My Youtha Nd I Have Always Liked The Z/28 Version..... — What I like about this car, it is old and it has potential to be a very nice peice of automotive art. What I do not like about it is the old technology some of the 80's ugly and the fact that it is going to cost me alot of cash to put it the way I want it. I want to mix it up, old and new.... a 383 stroker, Hotchkis Suspension 4 wheel disk breaks, rack and pinion steering, 17 inch wheels, lower it 2 inches, older interior, newer gauge cluster, Black, Pweter, Red with red interior. Leather/ Sued interior, full dual exhaust, pollished tips and a hidden modern sound system. Power windows, door locks, trunk, mirrors, air conditioning, fuel injected and quick.
