Pros

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.

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.

Z28 T-top Car — Has an LT1 said to be out of a Corvette, automatic transmission, some small spot on body need to be fixed, interior is better than average for this year of car

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.

Our 96 Camaro Is Our Baby - Love It! — We've had it about three years and have replaced the engine. It runs GREAT! It's a sharp looking car and we're always getting "challenged" by other drivers with sports cars (not that we're interested).
