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.

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.

Fun and Fast

Cons

Too expensive

My Camaro — The car overall is a great driver and performer. The car has 300 horsepower and a great suspension setup along with big wide tires and some good brakes to keep the car on the road. Howeve the car is very expensive to drive. Fro exaple only one tire costs around $200 and it gets around 16mpg if u drive normally.

1996 Camaro — It's only a v-6 but it still has power. Turning at high speeds works very well, the car doesn't do a lot of shifting. The appearance is o.k. The paint is good and everything but I like the look of the old '67 the best. I think it's a very fun car to drive. I've got Magnaflow so it at least sound decent. I wish I could get the GTP's supercharger on it cause it the same engine (3.8 L 3800 series II) but it wont fit. I usually get 29 mpg so for a sports car, thats pretty good considering the Mustangs only get 24 at the best (usually). Its all around been a good car.

An Awesome Sportscar — I can't dislike much about as its actual cost was 18,000 dollars. For a car with such a vast aftermarket and Powertrain, its unbeatable. it has its drawback like a weak Rear differential (never had an issue though), extremely cheap plastic (crap the car was cheap) so... Everything is in its due place...

it's a Camaro

Cons

interior isn't staying together over time, low visibility

Glory — This car is pure power. Even with just 6-cylinders, the pony car heritage is evident with a stripped interior featuring the bare minimum of accessories. The seats lead back so that the driver has can only guess the length of the hood, a testament to the holy driver mod. Featuring hard-hitting rear-wheel drive and a rough suspension that allows the driver to feel every bump in the road, the Camaro represents the best driver-automobile bond of any car I've ever driven.

Oramac (god Of Speed) — Just take a look, corvette rims (C-5) 18"...SLP short throw shifter, Weld on subframe connectors.. two tones interior (Red/Gray), and the car just always wants to go.. i have Hooker Cat back exhaust system havent done much else been saving my money for the new one coming out in mid 2009.
