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.

Camaro — Dont want any other car. This car has everything you could want in a sports car and they (any year) just look mean as hell. We eat any tuner alive or any pony thats comes up next to it. Love it!

Fun Car For A Single Guy Or A Couple Without Kids — The Z28... This car Rocks! With the LT1 motor, and 350hp... this car is/was a rocket. Gas milage wasnt the best, but when your having fun with the car, who cares. Handling is just as good as any other sports car.

to make driving more than a task

I've Put A Lot Of Work And Money In This Car And I Think Every Ounce I Put Into It Was Worth It — It has enough power to be more than a daily driver, but it also has great fuel efficiency. After a few mods the overall performance is great which makes it fun to drive. With the magnaflow exhaust and the cars design it has a race car feel to it. Lots of fun.

Kathy Is A Great Car And Will Take Care Of Me As Long As I Do The Litte Bit Upkeep She Heeds — had the car for 2 years now. the stock motor was alright but could be better so edelbrock LT-4 kit (part # 2019) was a must along with eagle 383 kit (part # B13055L030). 4L60E trany was good but of course was made better with a 2500 stall, B&M shift kit mixed with the 4.10 rear end just made the car even more fun. a super charger would be sweet but well see

Camaro Z28 Ss — Fast, fun and gets lots of looks. It's all stock except for the tint I added (5% limo tint on driver/passenger windows and the hatch). Mileage...I didn't buy it for that...There are a few minor things cosmetically but it's to be expected for a 13 year old car...Acceleration is all that you would think for a v8, the handling is great but I need to upgrade the brakes for better stopping power...as the fun factor...it's spectacularly awesome.
