Fell In Love. — I only had the car for a very short time. Insurance at that time as young as I was in that year just killed me. I had to sell the car after only about 8 or 9 months. But I would love to get my hand on one that has been taken care of. The after market mods. are limitless. So is horsepower and speed. I was A Police officer during this time period (had to resign due to a knee injury) but these are the cars that we trained in on the high speed training course. 215HP may not seem like much. But with some minor rear end changes and advance the timing a little some after market air cleaners, headers, and you had what felt like a rocketship. And really I never had any problems that kept mine in the shop. I'ts like I always say take care of your car and it will take care of you. Terry

1986 Camaro Z28 Iroc — This car has been my favorite car of all time. I always dreamed of owning one since I was 5. I now have one, and am currently saving to rebuilt it. Even in near stock form, it ran low 15's with economy gears, and still got 22 mpg cruising. The tall gears propelled it to 160 before I ran out of gear. The stock 305 is typicly tossed aside by most people, but it is a good engine and made a lot of torque. 4 wheel disc brakes stopped it quick although it could use a little more rear bias for firmer stopping with less dive. Fun car to drive, easily rolled burnouts into second gear and sounds great with a loud exhaust. I always had heads turning but never got much attention from cops.

Probably One Of The Funnest Cars I Have Driven. — Off the line taken down to Cali, to get the convt. package on it. Extra $5000 for the conversion at time of purchase, not many done this way, b/c 87 was the year they brought the convt back.

Z-28 — Received this from my Dad, brand spanking new in 1986. It was metallic blue with grey interior. I learned to do figure-eights and doughnuts in this car -- not only in the snow but on dry pavement too. It was a blast to drive. Gas was cheap then, maybe $ 0.70 cents for each gallon.

It's A Boss. — I love Camaros and this one is right up my alley. I love it's sound, it's engine, it's color, it's body, and the potential. I don't like how the previous owner treated it, but with a little blood, sweat, and tears, it's going to be a great machine.

I loved the model square body camaro.

Cons

I hated that the engine blew up within three months.

I Really Miss Owning This Car At Least Having The Body To Keep. — It was great at acceleration, good at braking, and handling was ok. It needed a couple things done to the engine that I never paid to get fixed. It had an ok interior. I had racing gauges and steering wheel. The outside was not as swell. It had some dents and dings. The gas mileage was horrible and it needed work. I loved driving this car. It was fast and would burn the tires off easy with a loud roar.

My Camaro — this is an amazing car to be driving anywhere. it only has a 305 manual. it has an aftermarket stereo, and i will be putting some more money in it eventually, but that is hard to come by these days.
