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

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.

Cons

none

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

Too expensive

25

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.
