1986 Chevrolet Camaro

In the era of "Baby on Board" hangtags, Camaro jumped on adding the safety bandwagon by adding third break light, but declined to put in any space for the aforementioned baby.  The 1986 Camaro featured a new third break light within the hatch, and continued to feature a back seat so limited in space that it was only slightly safer than Britney Spears' baby's perch in her lap.

Like other models from the Third Generation, the 1986 Camaro was cited for being in the shop quite a bit.  However, the excitement of the ride when the car is on the road seems to compensate for the extra work needed to be put in the car.  The acceleration and cornering were excellent, and the car's top speed seems almost limitless at times.
