Fun To Drive With Alot Of New Features. — I bought my first Camaro (used) when I turned 18. It was fun to drive and had alot of new features. I liked the looks and performance of this new Camaro body-style. Away with the chrome bumpers and some of the trim pieces. I especially like the dash and the instrument cluster. I would drive around town and most of my friends would ask if they could have a ride since I was the only one with a sporty car. It was a good car that didn't break down very often.

Strong engine and drive train.  Interior was accomodating, but sporty.

Had to pass it down to my sister.

Great First Car, But Nothing Special. — This was my first car in the world and my parents bought it for me when I turned 16.5 years old. It had bucket seats and a sweeping center console. The exterior lines were flowing and curvy like it could cut through water. I always admired the Z28 model of the same year, but this one didn't have the tail fin or the fender flares - it was pretty basic. It had a small V8 (I think it was a 305) with nice power, but not enough to boast about. It took me all of 3 months before I started tearing it apart to find out how it all fit together. I enjoyed this vehicle and hated to see it passed down to my sister, but I got something better out of the deal - another, more attractive and faster Camaro.

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.

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

Dream Car By belcher0807

Camaro Ss Is A Winner. By edksurly

I'm 6'3", plenty of headroom with a sunroof. The power is there, but it never slams you in your seat. The power can be felt best from a roll, imo. The BA stereo is decent, best with a cd or MP3 player... Read More
