Awesome — Very basic right now. Stock 305, well hell stock everything. Performance upgrades to be done are a Ford 9in rearend rear disc brake conversion, beef up the t-350 tranny and build a ground up 383 stroker motor. Overall very attractive car and fun to work with.

Hellaciously fun!

Cons

It's expensive and if you're not a mechanic then you're going to be out of luck

Great Car If You Can Keep It On The Road, But Not A Daily Driver — Performance- It had a bit done, so it was quick enough for me. Build Quality- Well I know enough to keep an old car running, just have to put in the work. Appearance- You either love it or hate it. Cost of Ownership- It's an old car with a V8 and 4.10s, it's going to drain you pretty quick. Fun Factor- Hmm, 4-speed, 4.10s, hopped up 350, sounds like my idea of a fun car!

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

Solid Classic Car, Last Of The Breed. — Cool old classic muscle car. Fun to drive with heaps of power. Don't handle as well as modern cars but what do ya expect from a 29 year old muscle car. Built big and solid you just can't go wrong.

Z/28 — Car was built from ground up and has 402 big block chev for power. Alll 500 horses of it and runs 11's in the quarter at 115 mph. Fun to drive but cops do like me as it looks like a race car.

1980 Camaro Z28 — I love the look of this car and especially the sound of the 5.7 litre V8. Shame it's an auto as I'd have preferred a manual but there aren't too many of them around. Being a left-hand drive car doesn't bother me, you get used to it. Performance - OK but I didn't buy it for that. Build quality - alright, it's pretty tank-like. Appearance - It's what attracted me to these cars in the first place. Just take a look at the picture when it eventually lets me upload it. Cost of ownership - classic insurance is cheap but fuel costs are astronomical. Fun factor - hell yeah! I absolutely love it.

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

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.

Memories — It wasn't the best car ever, but it was my first car and it was a Camaro. I love all the good times I had in that car.

cool looks, great sound system, and the ladies like it ;)

Cons

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
