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.

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.

Torque, Handling, stlying

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.

Pros

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.
