Perfection — This is the best car to own ever. The 305 has plenty of power to blow away your ricer honda's with their fancy stickers and spoilers. Ive owned it for a year, put 20,000km on it. Has not needed a single repair. Its now at 221,000km. VERY reliable car. The interior is simple, i like it, i find it comfortable and pretty roomy,the exterior styling is just killer. I love driving by big windows just to see how cool i look drivin it. Gas mileage isnt the greatest ~20mpg city, ~30mpg highway with the 305 V8. bought it for $1500. wouldnt trade it for anything in the world.

Cool Different Car — Rare car, needs to be restored, but worth restoring! It has the 350 tpi conversion, so makes it even more fun and different. Can't wait to be able to get started onit, time and money- never enough of either! Will updated as it progresses!

Like nothing I have ever driven. Pure sex on wheels

Cons

3rd gen interiors have way too much plastic and they squeak.

She's A One Of A Kind Hot Rod Camaro — This is my 85 Z28. It has a 400 small block chevy with a T56 Borg-Warner 6 speed, Eaton Posi, and 3.73 gears. Exterior - Custom SS Hood, 5" rear spoiler, Billet grill, EnergySuspension bushing kit, Hypercoil lowering springs, Lakewood lift bars, and 17 x 8 Dante wheels on BfGoodrich KDWS Tires. Paint is Dupont QuickSilver with YearOne clearcote. Interior - New carpet, headliner and sun visors from YearOne. T56 Hurst Shifter ball from Hawks Third Gen. I've owed her since my senior year of high school and she didn't always look this way. I'm the 2nd owner of this Z28. I finished up most of the work in late 2006. She turns heads everywhere I go and the sound of the custom made duel exhaust tells everyone she's mean. Performance wise I'm not gonna to get too detailed on but she handles curves like a slot car and has more than enough Torque and HP to put ricers in their place.... Behind her!!!

"the Fast And Furious" — This is a "Wow" Car when it comes to performance. It has been so well maintained that it feels like its a brand new car. No repairs or rattles needed. The electric blue paint is sleek and fits that Iroc image of being A sporty, muscle, car. It is a great deal at $6,500.00, a complete maintenance history included. Not only would this be a fun car to drive, but would surely boost your popularity.

Camaro Is The Best. Period — For an 1985, it is in perfect condition. Great acceleration. Only second owner. Very clean. No rust or chips on the paint. Custom exhaust and sound system. Hoping to swap to a 350 or higher. The best car I have ever owned.

Looked good if you didn't pay attention to the oxidization, felt powerful.

Cons

Oxidization and bad electrical problems

Iroc Z — It needed a lot of work as it had been sitting for awhile. It didn'thave a problem with doing cookies or massiv smokeys. In the end it blew the coil and it hasn't run since. Other than that it would have bee nice.

Pros

was a built up 80's Camaro, so people hated losing to it

Cons

Typically the gas mileage

695

Good With The Bad — Likes: fast for what it had, performance did 0-60 in about 4.5 seconds, had a small block 350, carb, was smog legal, got about "estimated" 6mpg, t-top, front clip was from an 88' camaro, along with alll the interior. and a lotttt more to list. Dislikes: windshield wipers didn't work so you had to use this wax stuff for the window if i were to drive it in the rain. hood was lift off instead of on hinges, speed omitter went out and i never got around to fixing it..

Primary Use: Commuting to work
