If You Can Afford One, Get One! — Best year camaro ever made. Suspension was great stock and still is. Performance suffered due to the oil crisis in the late 70s, but the motors respond very well to performance parts. I love mine, and I will never sell it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: sexy, sporty,

Cons: none

Last Of True Breed — It was fun to drive, turned heads, and for being stock she was fast with just a few modifications. It didn't cost much to keep her running compared to computer cars of today. She was my baby and everyone knew her when we hit the road.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: American classic

Cons: nothing

Loved It — Big block V8 with dual overhead cams, kick ass muffler system even with the catalytic, rode 5 easily and comfortably, slap stick shifter, hugged the road like there was no tomorrow. Loved this white baby. She's queen of roads! Yeah

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fun to drive

Cons: gas mileage ratio sucked

It's A Rush And A Plast To Drive — this car is raw power that you feel all over your body, from the minute you turn the key to the feeling of weightlessness you feel when you're taking your car over the threshold of safety at over 270 km h. What a rush.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the persistent massage from the engine roaring

Cons: low turn control and very very long hood

1979 Camaro — the 1979 camaro has more to offer then its looks. the sleek body lines gives it the ability to be a beautiful car. performance wise it wasnt the best out of the factory but with simple modifications and very little money the car can be fast.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the low end power

Cons: blind spots

!979 Silver Camaro — The Camaro Has been part of my family since it was bought off the lot in 1979 by my mother! The car is pretty much all original except now we put a deck in this summer, (The A.M radio just wasn't cutting it LOL ) Hopefully by this summer we want to start the rebuilding of the car (the old lady needs a face lift, as i tell my mother) The car handles very well in the summer time when its nice and dry out, but for having such a light back end you would assume there are a lot of fish tailing in the rain.

Pros: The body style

Cons: the light back end and fuel consumtion

250 Camaro — this is one of my favorite cars its currently being restored and is powered by a 250ci s6. its a great drive and is sure to stick you to your seat every time it takes off. this year mode was one of the first to incorporate aerodynamics with muscle cars and introduced chevy to the in-line 6 cylinders.

Pros: it's true american muscle

Cons: 6 cylinder loves petrol lol
