Fast — I found this car wasting away with a 5.0 with automatic transmission body was in great shape needed a little interior work ut that was fine, so i striped out the motor and transmission and built and installed a 5.7 litre then installed a 5 speed transmission. this car is fast and fun.

Black Pearl — I've owned this IROC for 15 years. I bought it from the original owner here in Oregon. It's always garaged and covered. It's been a mulitple award winner at regional car shows. I would not sell or trade it for anything!

Pros

Unique because of the convertible top, but it's still a Camaro so parts are everywhere. Not much interior space.

Cons

Not the Iroc, and has the smaller 5.0 V8

The Fire Engine Red With Stripes, And Convertible, Turns Heads! — This car is loud, heavy, powerful, and mean, just like me. If gas mileage is your concern, this car is not for you; however, the torque in this car is awesome. The best use of this car though is to drop the top and cruise.

Nice — I love it!!! I just wish that other people could. I love to drive it and chill. for my first car I hope that I don't get speeding tickets and get into car crashes. I just wished it had cup holders.

Nice Classic Camaro — i like how its a convertible and its condition for a car thats 20 years old. another thing i like is that the it has folding rear seats for more storage. something i dislike about it is that it doesen't have a glove compartment under the dash like most cars. the gas econmy i'd say would be good for daily driving. to maintain and fix it is alot of money same as the insurance its alot of money because of its age and since its a convertible.

A Decent Entry Level Car That Can Grow With Your Driving Level. — Power, two stars: It's a 2.8 V6, what can you really expect? Looks/ Style: First off, IT"S A CAMARO! Second, it's still sleek and takes some of it's styling from the corvette of the time. Maintenance cost: Not bad, I work on it myself. Back seats: The only people who could sit in those things are little people, and double amputees. No joke there is three inches between the front of the back seat, and the back of the front seat. We all know there only there so it's considered a "Passenger car" on the insurance forms. Handling: Fairly decent, after all it was Built for the International Race Of Champions, better known as IROC. Yes, it has the potential to be a quarter mile beast, but it can also be a decent auto crosser. Front seats: Pretty average. Nothing special, but they are fairly comfortable. Reliability: It's an RS with a 2.8, been worked hard over it's 119K miles. Yet it still starts up on the coldest day MN winter has to offer after sitting for two months untouched. Family car: One word, NO! Fuel economy: Compared to a top fuel dragster this thing absolutely sips fuel at 12mpg highway. Price: Averaging between 1-5 grand for a fairly decent running 305 tbi model, I'd say it's a good entry level muscle car with the potential to decimate most vehicles on the road. Cargo capacity: I can fit a pair of twelves in the back and maybe a shirt or two. Overall: Maybe I'm biased (I'm a chevy guy, and this is my first car) but I like it. The looks may not be everybody's cup of tee, to me this car is a winner.

A Good Project Car That Needed More Tools And More Money. — For a project car it was a good buy. Unfortunatly I never got to drive this car under its own power. It was sleek and it came with a 305 V8, but the previous owner had an engine fire which melted much of the wiring. I know the engine output is supposed to be around 200HP much like my V6 in my Firebird that I currently own but then again for all I know it could have had internall work done on it. I did drive this car twice but not under its own power. It has since been sold.
