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

Sweet Car

Love It...better With The V8 Though. — Great car... pretty fast v6 and very fun for a first car. I love the style of the exterior. It's very classy. It gets decent gas mileage and whips the asses of ricers... one problem, not a v8. I love it though.

Z28 1le — This car has nearly 400,000 miles on it as of summer 2009. I definitely can't complain about that, considering the minimum amount of motor work that's had to be done (head gaskets at 300K is it). It's an extremely fun car to drive, and gets reasonable mileage (20ish during DD, near 30mpg on highway trips). I love it. :)

Great Camaro — This is a great car if you are looking for power. it can get a little sticky when you are working under the hood because everything is just packed in there with little room to work with but other than that its a terrific car.

stick shift, fun, sleek

Cons

chipped paint, only roof frame

25

Fantastic First Car — it's very used, we spent 1000 on it origionally and have since fixed it up. it rattles and has some chips, but is reliable and fun to drive. the padding on the roof is gone so it's just the frame on top, but we're hoping to fix that soon. we had a new radio put in, too, and the speakers are fine, but not the greatest. we're hoping there won't be too many more repairs, because we've already replaced the clutch, brakes, and various tubes, and the engine runs well. all in all, i love it, and it's a great first car.

good performance, better fuel economy than many much weaker engines

Cons

I Love It. — 3.8L V6 puts out approx. 200hp and I get approx. 35mpg with nothing more than CAI and new exhaust on it. Had to replace transmission but as long as you check that kind of stuff you'll do just fine with the 5 speed manual. gets up and goes quickly. I've outrun base V8 mustangs before. other than the transmission only things i've had to fix were the water pump and replaced a coil pack. and this is with 145k miles on it. I love it and use it on every long trip.

Camaro Z28 — Great power, more torque than most cars... not the best handling, but better than you might think. American build quality which means plastic interior but should be fairly mechanically sound. Very fun to drive, loud, turns a lot of heads

FLP longtube headers, 3 inch Y-pipe, 3 inch borla cat-back, 2800 vigalante stall, fully build 4L60E trans, steel drive shaft, Moser 12 bolt rearend with upgraded axles, c-clip eliminator kit, and eaton truetrax posi with 3:73 gear set. baer big brake kit, eibach springs, bilstein shocks, bmr control arms, torque arm, panhard bar, 6 point roll cage, 5 point harnesses, stewart warner gauges. All and all 400hp on the motor 700+hp on the gas, hasn't been to the track yet, so no lap times yet.
