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).

The Batmobile — This was my friends car, a black V6 T-top. Lots of fun to drive, fast enough to get into serious trouble, just ask him about how much that cost him. 5 star crash rating, dual air bags. Good car for a teen age girl, but I have to crawl out of it as it's something you wear when your in it. She gets one ticket and it will be sold.
