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

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.

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...
