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

The 350 was punched out to a 355, all forged internals, eagle crank and rods, JE nitrous pistons, ported and polished LT4 heads, 3 angle valve job, 1.6 ratio comp roller rockers, pro-magnum push rods, arp studs, LS7 springs, lifters, and retainers. upgraded injectors, port matched LT4 intake manifold, ported throttle body, K&N intake, TNT Nitrous 300hp wet shot. 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.

Fuel ,milege

Fun ... 5 Out Of 5 — Great drifter. Lots of torque with exceptional hadling. Built Chev tough with minimal upkeep as long as the driver doesn't really raw-hide the car. Stlyish exterior with an average but functional dash which wraps around the driver for a real sports car feel. As expected the fuel milege is not so great but it makes up for it in grins.

Amazing Ride — It's the best, quickest, and hottest!!! I've added many parts, in which i refuse to go into detail with. Comes complete with 18" wheels and an Alpine DVD system. I'm looking to add lambo doors and bigger brakes this coming summer. Whats there to hate? NOTHING!! loves the name of this game!!!

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.

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...
