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.

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

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.

T-top

1996 Camaro — The car is a t top. Although the car isnt too offel fast its a good looking car and now that ive added a flowmaster exaust, spectre cone filter, MSD coil packs,Accel wires and pacesetter headers the car is probably pushing between 240 hp to 260 hp. The car is flame red. I personally love the car.

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

105

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.
