Fantastic Black Iroc Z — This is my generation of cameros, so this car is a classic to me....always garage stored and never driven in the rain. Its a car that my family and I love to take out of the garage on a nice sunny Sunday or to a local car meet.....just a pleasure to own and drive

Good Car — a good car that runs good but does not have the size engine i want. i have used this car as an everday drive, and it is very dependable. The car is wired for a large sound system in the hatchback.

If Going With A 3rd Gen Camaro, The Iroc-z Is The Way To Go. — 3rd Gen Camaro's are a great ride with a few quirks. the overall handling is fantastic, and when running a stage 2 Hypertech chip instead of the factory chip (computer located under passenger side dash... easily accessed by laying upside down head on floor) you can get good pwr increase and good economy even with a 350 w/ cam.

This car is so fun to drive, it would keep up with 05-09 mustang gts and kick the crap out of foxbodies

Cons

It needs a lot of work and money put into it.

Third Gen F-body That Rules The Road In Primer Grey — 0-60 in less that 5 seconds, built like a chevy, still needed a lot of body work, it was pretty cheap until it need a new motor, but is was an awsome drive. It drove so easy and had gobs of torque, and I meen gobs!

Iroc Your World — nice looking and nice performance car. Be sure to be know all around you. Corvette's engine is full of torque and sound. Burning tire is the way to go. But gaz is very expensive with that muscle car and be sure to own a second car ( to use in the winter or longer ride ) and of course this is old, so it's a lot of repair

Its Nice Car To Have — the perfamce on this camaro is pretty good, it comes with a nice handling pasckage. the acceleration is horrible on this car because it is heavy. the apperance on the exterior is great other than little scratches. The interior is in okay condition it needs 2 new seats an headliner thats it. I paid $800 for the whole an it ran like crap an looked like crap but all that changed wen i got my hands on it. This car is fun to drive around because it turns alot of heads.

Great Car, Highly Recommend — Great first car...great platform to build on. Handled like it was on rails. Anemic motor/rearend. Factory motors are horrible, but throw an LSX in, it'd be great. The tranny's arent bad (T-5 or 700R4) but a T56 would be my choice. Build quality is typical 80s GM with rattles and whatnot but not much you can do about that...overall a great car with huge aftermarket support plus they look fantastic.

Love — It is primer grey and it runs 110mph in a quarter mile with final drive ratio factory set at 2.73. The interior needs some work yet still the matenace is very cheap for I do it all myself, and it gets 24 mpg.
