Power And Looks Blended With Uniqueness And Style — Converting a Chevy Camaro ZL1 into a Trans Am look alike is not as difficult as you might think. The Camaro ZL1 is a powerful car with great handling. This is definitely no family car. I also wouldn't recommend this car for anything that requires cargo space.

Big Smiles — I like everything about this car. Fun and enjoyable, heads up display, smooth ride and just cruisin around with other camaro's around town, Hint using a clay bar will help bring out the depth of the color but a lot of work to do

Pros

A lot of power for being a v6! 320+hp and you can feel the torque. It had a unique color and style compared to all the camaro's. steering wheels feels nice and tight and stable. It's rides smooth

Cons

Blind spots are hard too see . A bit heavy ,

This Car Is A Collectible 45th Anniversary And Would Recommend It To Any Camaro Fan That's Looking V — I like the stripes and the look of the car is very sharp. Sport spoiler and 20inch sporty wheels . 45th anniversary logos through out the car looks great . The gauges on center console are a thumbs up. Also heads up display is a plus !

Dream Car — This car is everything I hoped it would be and more. It has better power than my 90's Z28 but still gets 30 MPG. The front seats are very comfortable. The rear seats are a little small but that's why they say it has 2+2 seats and not 4 seats. You really learn to rely on your mirrors with this car because is has a moderate sized blind spot, though nothing you can't learn to drive with no problem. Overall this car maintained the status of dream car in my eyes.

Good Summer Car, — Car handles good, great acceleration, not the greatest on gas in city driving, long distance is fairly decent for a V6. Back seats are not the best for passengers for a long distance drive. The car does handle pretty good if you have to drive it in snow, with the traction control. These cars are basically for seasonal driving.

Fun way to get to work. It looks more expensive then it really is. Best looking head turning car out there!

Cons

Kids complain about it being too cramped in the backseat with booster seats.  A lot of blind Spots.

Gorgeous, Classy, Affordable, And Fast — Couldn't be happier with this vehicle. It drives well, looks great and is fun to take on dates. Every little kid turns their head to point at this car or to look for the transformer underneath. It's very fun to drive to work and back.

Pros

I have never driven a faster car with such handling ability. I have owned a Jag XFR and a Caddy CTSV and loved them all but more pure driving fun this car cant be beat.

Cons

Only small kids can fit in the back, not made for that anyways!

Love It. — Amazing vehicle. Car grips corners and accelerates 0 to 60 in 3.9 secs! Still love the CTS-V for the back seta and refinement but this car is a drivers car for sure. Go get one for yourself! 605 HP is a beast. Car brakes on a dime as well.

You Should Buy One At Any Age. — Power - This car will smoke most other cars in its range + out of its range power wise, but when i test drove the ZL1 Camaro, it put the SS to shame... Looks/Style - Everyone thinks its a beautiful car, constant compliments Maintenance Cost - same as all my past cars just that i always want to upgrade it Back Seats - not for adults taller than 5'10", fits 2 baby seats, but a pain in the A$$ to get them in and out, plus you have to move the front seats as far forward as they go. Handling, does ok street wise, wont have any issues.. track wise its the best in its price range, but could be better on a lot of tracks Front seats - comfortable unless you have ppl in back seat / baby seat in back seats. Reliability - perfect, no issues Family Car - if you are willing to put up with cramped spaces with 2 baby seats, it is a family car for 4. but not comfortably unless there are only 3 of you. Fuel Economy - hwy i achieve 29.1 at 69mph, city i get 16.8 - takes place in California in the hills based off 33 mile daily city commute to work and back. Price - nothing can compare to what you get for this price Cargo capacity - does not fit 32" flat screen tv's in the box in the trunk or back seat. other than that, you can safely assure yourself that packing for 2 week vacation fits snug in the trunk or 7 cases of 28 pack waterbottles w/ a 10" sub. Overall - most amazing vehicle ever driven.

The handling is amazing with enough power to dust the competition (this car is rated as a 4 second car)

Cons

I just do not have the time to driver the beast, plus in winter

American Made Super Car — This is a 4 second car, with a magnificent value to HP ratio. This vessel is powered by a 6.2 V8 Supercharged engine producing just about with 580 HP, need more? Sure, but where would I drive it? This car has the perfect balance of a true sports car and refined enough to drive it in the city

Nice Head Turner For The Money — It's not my everyday car but I really enjoy the weekend drives. Kids in the neighborhood know this car by name and they 'ooh' and 'ahh' when they see me drive by. I get looks from women, guys and teens. I feel like I'm driving a more expensive car than what it really is. The biggest downside is the outward visibility. I put on 'blind spot mirrors' and it's much better now.
