Camaro Z28, Cfi — By the time I got to this car, the paint was already getting quite dull... but for a 28 year old car, it was in great shape! It cost me $500 in 1999, and was definitely one of the funnest cars I have ever owned. Gas mileage was awful, but considering the price of gas was $1 still, it wasn't a consideration.

Camaro — Got the car very cheaply from the original owner with 60k on the clock. Have removed all the Dents and scrapes and repainted in the same colour with a bit more pearl, added Z28 wheels, exhaust, Road racing suspension set up, and had a little play with the motor [350]. It does go okay and handles very well but is very stiff due to the suspension. Sits 1 1/2" lower in the front then the photo. Does very good skids and with the LSD is fun to abuse.

One Of A Kind — Its a great fun car, great performance and braking because of great upgrades. Custom repaint and some comfort upgrades to the interior. Being a performance v8 it does get pretty good gas mileage for what it is. overall this is a gret fun car

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Fun And Demanding — good excelleration, decent braking, handles good, rides a little rough. built with alot of plastic, t-tops leak. exterior styling couldn't have been better, except t bars tend to rust. gas milage is about 14-18 mpg depending on how you drive it, easy to maintain, car is really fun to drive

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!

Pros

Extremely fun, Reliable, Sporty, Relatively Quick

Cons

Heavy on Gas, Not Very fast

Car Has Balls! — Be under no illusions that this is a fast car, it isnt. Ill get that right out of the way, if your looking for a quick car, buy a WRX. This car is old, its a classic and should be treated like one. Mine in particular is the Indy Pcae Car. Its a smogged engine rated south of 170 Bhp. However, I can honestly say that I am completely in love with this car. It very reliable, stunningly beutiful, and for the price, I dont think any other car would have been quite as much fun as this car. I always have a good time driving, taking the t-tops off and cruising around. I get around 15 mpg. Overall, if 2-3K is burning a hole in your pocket, this is not a bad way to spend it.

More Fun Than A Barrel Of Monkeys ... — This was my second car in the world. I purchased it after giving my sister my first 1980 Chevrolet Camaro. I had full reign to find what I wanted, but buy within my means. It was then that I found my two-toned 1982 Camaro IROC Z. I had a few fender benders and more than a couple tickets (my license was suspended) while enjoying this vehicle. It ended up being solid white with polished and painted 16" wheels (which were big in those days) with 315x35x16 tires. The hood had a working throttle flap that opened up at full throttle (which happened alot). It also had upgraded suspension and went around corners like it was on rails. I spent many days trying vigorously to recreate going around a corner like the "Dukes of Hazard" - sideways. I rebuilt the motor twice and replaced it once within the 5 years that I owned it. It was more fun than a barrel of monkeys and I'll always remember that car as my first real sportscar.

Owner for 4 years, 11 months

Miles Driven per Year:15,000

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.
