My Car — i love this car because it is fast and nice, it has red interior and and very nice black paint job on the extreior. Fast acceleration, correvette engine and unbelievably nice. If anyone is thinking of getting a nice old muscle car think about getting a 1980 camaro z28 for the win

The Best — It was the best. It had T-tops and a 5.7L Corvette engine, dual exhaust and IROC wheels with 60's Eagle GT tires. I had to sell the car when I got engaged as my fiancee hated how loud it was when I pulled up to her parents house. Wish I had that car now.

1980 Chevy Z28 Camaro — It is a 1980 Z28 Camaro it has a chromed out engine, new interior, a little bump system. Very fast!! My kids love the car. It has very little wrong with it. I might sell it on ebay. Just so I can buy another camaro to work on. This one is in better shape than I wanted. There is not much left to work on.

Best Car I've Owned — I love my Z28, Handles well for a car of it's time, The swapped engine has PLENTY of power. Love the look and feel. Breaks well, Fantastic acceleration. Isn't great on gas, but if you aren't flooring it, it isn't actually that bad. Most fun I've ever had in a car.

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.

Beautiful lines, classic, stands out.

Cons

High insurance, poor gas milage, blown up

1980 Camaro Z28 — It's a great car. It doesn't run, but what can you expect from 215000 miles of red necked torture. It's lines look gorgious. The only problem is the automatic transmission. That'll change soon though. It was great to drive before gas was $3.00/gallon and before I blew it up. Now, I can only drive-down hill.

Beatcha! — What can I say? It was my first sports car!! It wasn't beautiful but it was still a Camaro! It got me and my brother from Edmonton to calgary in just "under" 2 hours! That was also the trip that blew up 2 cylinders and the oil pump:(

not as fast as it used to be, some problems with the paint

My Baby — well it used to be fast, until i changed the rear end for gasoline reasons. it had its bad days as well, a few wrecks and dings, none of which by me. 1 by my sis, one by my dad, 1 by my friend, and one by the owner before me. its got a nice 350 in it but it definitely could use some help in the horsepower department
