1971 Chevrolet Camaro Review
TSKieffer says:
I loved this car [forever] and only sold it in 77 for a brand new 77 Camaro, because the after-market T-Tops [Hurst, American, Sattlelite, et. al.] were just coming out so I wanted one of those and a Metallic Brown Camaro....

Power Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"The 304 ci engine was plenty to pull the Javelin front wheels off the ground with only a little traction improvement. Id imagine the 360 or 401 would exude a truly wild experience. The Camaro is more balance for a curvy road so pulling the front end up on a launch would be nearly impossible with the small 307 ci."
Handling Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin worse.
"In base form, the Camaro suspension is tight and handles like a sports car. Whereas, the Javelin didnt have much handling improvement in the SST model over the base Series 70. It doesnt even compare until you step up to the top model AMX."
Looks/Style Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"This is, of course, a matter of opinion. The sexy body lines of the Javelin a.k.a. humpster have styling ques of the Mustang, Corvette, and Camaros of the era. Its funny to pull up to a crowd and have people guessing what it is. Theres a million Camaros, and anything you do to it has already been done."
Front Seats Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"The absolutely HUGE area in front of the passenger seat is like no other car Ive ever seen. Theres plenty of room to do whatever activities you can imagine in a car. Camaro is typical."
Back Seats Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"Not much difference here, but the Javelin edges out the Camaro mostly because theres 3 spots to sit albeit uncomfortably."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"I think they are very close in trunk capacity, but the Javelin is taller whereas the Camaro is deeper."
Family Car Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"Seating for 5 in the Javelin (4 in Camaro). More room in the front seating area of the Javelin as well."
Value Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"Geez, maybe the obtainable price of a fine specimen Javelin for under $10k. The same in Camaro, Mustang, Challenger is impossible. Youd be looking at $15k and up for the big 3 pony cars."
Would Buy Ranked 1971 AMC Javelin better.
"Javelins are unique and a better bang for your buck!"
