Pros

Torque, Handling, stlying

Cons

Fuel ,milege

Fun ... 5 Out Of 5 — Great drifter. Lots of torque with exceptional hadling. Built Chev tough with minimal upkeep as long as the driver doesn't really raw-hide the car. Stlyish exterior with an average but functional dash which wraps around the driver for a real sports car feel. As expected the fuel milege is not so great but it makes up for it in grins.

Its Awesome. — I love my Camaro. There's nothing like flying down the highway in a legendary American muscle car with the T-Tops off and the radio blasting the classic rock. She's got 135,000 miles and running stong. I wouldn't want to drive anything other than a Camaro.

Pros

Believe it or not, this car is great for hauling when you put the back seat down.  Have hauled 2x4s, decorative bamboo tree about 6' tall, as well as many other larger items

Cons

Difficult to park with the extra-long doors/nose

Timeless Style — Mine is a V6 and definietly has enough power for daily driving. Overall somewhat comfortable seats, very reliable, few problems. Just passed 158K miles and going strong. Recently replaced water pump, battery, plug/wires. Burns a little bit of oil which is completely normal for a car of this age/miles. Never been in an accident (knock on wood!), no major issues at all, well-loved and taken care of. Thinking of selling to get a small pickup such as S10, mostly because the other cars have very limited truck space.

Great Car Needs A Super Charger!!! — Great car cause it has a 6 speed. if you have the auto then it is no good on gas millage. the start of the line is great but the traction could be better. get strut bars before anything if your going to be driving it like i do.

Sporty fast car.

Cons

Optispark, gas mileage

Excellent Racing Car. — Quick car. Not the best looking, but doesn't matter to me. Beats Mustangs, Fact. Gets alright gas mileage, usually 14-18 mpg around the city. Very fun car to drive, also has excellent handling. I would recommend this car to anyone.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Awesome Slp — Love this car, truly a fun experience cruising around. Got the car from my father and I believe he was the 3rd owner. Amazing how good the paint looks, garage kept with car cover. Overall performance is pretty good from SLP; no mods yet but thinking about it!

Simply Sweet! — I like everything about this car from the color combination to the power of the LT-1 to the gas mileage on the Highway while cruising with the top down! Very fast acceleration, excellent top end (140+), smooth handling along with superior braking.

Money Pit — Its a sports car. It sounds good, runs fast, and the A/C works. The LT1 engine is a waist of time and money. LS is the only way to go, unless you have a turbo or supercharger. I cant get rid of this car because I have around $28,000 in it and the car only coast me $3,000 when I bought it. If someone offered 15,000 I would sleep on it.
