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.

T-Tops, V8, fun

Cons

Brakes

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.

Awesome Car For The Price — I like this car, but im changing out the engine so I haven't really gotten to take it out much. The exterior is beautiful and the interior is nice too, but the drive train needs fixed, hopefully in the next week

to make driving more than a task

Cons

no room in back seats and a small trunk

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.

Camaro Rs Is A Great Car — Faster than hell. Tops out at 150 MPH. Only has a few scratches. Needs a new fog light. Needs to have the shift nob to be worked on. It looks good on the outside but has a few scratches. Interior is fine. The gas mileage is great on it. It is great fun to drive especially with the tops off.
