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.

Pros

This is 96'...the lt-1 engine came out in the 92 corvette.. now, this engine is rated at 305 ponies in the vette.. It took FORD, til what...2005? to get the engine rating up to 300, haha. i just laugh.

Cons

They didnt keep this front end look in the newer models (98-02), but the 5th gen is on the wayyyy

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.

Unbelievable Performance For The Six Cylinder, And Also Really Sexy Looking. — The one that i bought had custom interior straight from the factory. It has Chevy red velore seats trimed with black. Also everything is exactly like the Z-28 except of coarse the horsepower, but This series three 3800 HO is crazy fast. If you have a speeding problem this would be a better buy than the V-8 models. Better to loose seventy horses than to go to jail.

Pros

Low- and mid-range torque, nicely-weighted steering, RWD dynamics, great front seats, fantastic V8 snarl, exhaust pop-and-burble at lift-throttle, 6th-gear fuel economy.

Cons

Big-number high-end power doesn't seem to pull like it should, on-centre steering play, slightly front-heavy, useless rear seats, brakes just barely lacking, 1st-through-5th-gear fuel economy.

Musclecar Speed With Sports-car Handling — As first-ever cars go, I think I win the Awesome contest. Throwing caution, and common sense, to the wind, I skipped past all the used Civics and Corollas and dropped the biggest chunk of cash I've ever spent on a General Motors car from the 90's. And I wouldn't have it any other way. This car has introduced me to power, speed and real handling, and after a summer with it I'm hungry for more. It's also introduced me to GM's idea of interior fit-and-finish from the mid-90's, which I'll call far from spectacular, but the hard plastic doesn't feel so bad when you're in a four-wheel drift around one of those circular highway offramps. It won't win every stoplight race, but it's plainly a hoot to drive around town or on the highway, where stressful moments like passing three logging trucks in a row becomes child's play. It's no show car, either, so I don't consider it rolling bragging rights. It's all about the fun I have driving it, which is all that should really matter.
