My First — This was my first car, so I will always have a special place in my heart for it. As she can see she needed some work, but when I got it I only paid $700.00 for it from a neighbor and mechanically she never gave me any problems, I just wish I still had her and was able to do all the cosmetic stuff. If I still had her she would be sexy by now!

Great Car. Can Be Alot Of Work. — I have had this car for just over a year and a half. And I do have to say that I love it. When I bought this car is was from an old lady in Bowling Green KY. Since then I have had to but in a new transmission, and a new engine...twice!! And all of this happened right before I actually started to drive it! But thats not the point. I love this car. It has always been good to me.

Cons

all the plastic

Bottom Line I Will Probably Never Get Rid Of This Car! — It is so much fun to drive.I have always loved this body style Camaro.The 2 tone, the graphic's. Many people say they didn't even know they made replica pace car's.Mine isnt stock under the hood, sound's healthy. My dad had one of these and he wish he had it back.

American Muscle At Its Finest — This car was a monster.Fast as heck and handling wasnt bad.Didnt need a single thing when i owned it not even rust on it.Appearance was ok with the interior needing some work and the car needing a paint job but.Very expensive on insurance inless you get collector car insurance and you can just watch your gas guage needle drop driving around the city.All in all this car was awesome and i would buy another one any day.

Very Great Car For Anything You Need It For. — My car is great! For some of the cars that are out today the gas milage is fair. It was built to last, all except for the engine. I am currently getting the Engine rebuilt. It had a knocking, turns out its just a regular engine, they get tired after awhile. This is a fun car to drive, very comfortable, and very efficient. I will probably never get rid of this car.

Sporty If Ya Spend The Bucks. — Like all Camaro and Firebird drivers from the 80's nitch, they were'nt the best of the best unless you dumped butt-loads of cash into them. Dont get me wrong, I loved my '82 but the 6 in it was shot, it started of fire once and i couldnt lock the doors unless I crawled through the hatch. God I miss that car.
