Car Has Balls! — Be under no illusions that this is a fast car, it isnt. Ill get that right out of the way, if your looking for a quick car, buy a WRX. This car is old, its a classic and should be treated like one. Mine in particular is the Indy Pcae Car. Its a smogged engine rated south of 170 Bhp. However, I can honestly say that I am completely in love with this car. It very reliable, stunningly beutiful, and for the price, I dont think any other car would have been quite as much fun as this car. I always have a good time driving, taking the t-tops off and cruising around. I get around 15 mpg. Overall, if 2-3K is burning a hole in your pocket, this is not a bad way to spend it.

Pros: Extremely fun, Reliable, Sporty, Relatively Quick

Cons: Heavy on Gas, Not Very fast

3rd Generation Muscle Car — The car handles like a dream. Loves the highway especially with the t- roof off. The acceleration on this is vehicle is amazing. Besides that you need to drive one to really know how it is.

Pros: Hugs the road

Cons: Hard on gas ( v8 carborated)

I Really Miss This Car! — This was my second car I ever owned. I was only 18 and foolish, but I still miss this car. It drove like a race car and turned corners like it was on rails. It was simply a blast to drive. But like most Chevrolet's I've owned, it broke down frequently. If I wasn't in love with it as much as I was I wouldn't have kept it for so long (4 years).

Pros: Great styling and performance (on all fronts).

Cons: Unreliable at best.

More Fun Than A Barrel Of Monkeys ... — This was my second car in the world. I purchased it after giving my sister my first 1980 Chevrolet Camaro. I had full reign to find what I wanted, but buy within my means. It was then that I found my two-toned 1982 Camaro IROC Z. I had a few fender benders and more than a couple tickets (my license was suspended) while enjoying this vehicle. It ended up being solid white with polished and painted 16" wheels (which were big in those days) with 315x35x16 tires. The hood had a working throttle flap that opened up at full throttle (which happened alot). It also had upgraded suspension and went around corners like it was on rails. I spent many days trying vigorously to recreate going around a corner like the "Dukes of Hazard" - sideways. I rebuilt the motor twice and replaced it once within the 5 years that I owned it. It was more fun than a barrel of monkeys and I'll always remember that car as my first real sportscar.

Owner for 4 years, 11 months

Miles Driven per Year:15,000

Pros: Alot of fun to drive.  Power a plenty.  Nice interior - great exterior styling.

Cons: I had to sell it.

Boring — I was excited to own a Camaro, but was quickly disappointed. It had a rough ride and was noisy for a new car - a little like driving a truck. I love the classic Camaro's and the newest models are beautiful, but the in-between years are a let-down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: None

Cons: None
