Awesome — Great car for the money. These Gen3's are sturdy/tight in handling. This one--with the 383 motor, 4-bolt main and a Tremac 5 spd thans., EdelBrock Headers, 3" exhaust pipe to Super Sport HO muffler w/ Quad SS tips, makes a big difference in power combined with that handling and improved interior comforts seen in newer cars today.

Pros: Favorable Gen 3 model. Great looks

Cons: None since the upgrades

Z-28 — Received this from my Dad, brand spanking new in 1986. It was metallic blue with grey interior. I learned to do figure-eights and doughnuts in this car -- not only in the snow but on dry pavement too. It was a blast to drive. Gas was cheap then, maybe $ 0.70 cents for each gallon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: dynamic

Cons: Needed rear disk brakes and 100 more horses.

It's A Boss. — I love Camaros and this one is right up my alley. I love it's sound, it's engine, it's color, it's body, and the potential. I don't like how the previous owner treated it, but with a little blood, sweat, and tears, it's going to be a great machine.

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

Pros: The power, engine, sound, and body.

Cons: The interior and wiring.

I Really Miss Owning This Car At Least Having The Body To Keep. — It was great at acceleration, good at braking, and handling was ok. It needed a couple things done to the engine that I never paid to get fixed. It had an ok interior. I had racing gauges and steering wheel. The outside was not as swell. It had some dents and dings. The gas mileage was horrible and it needed work. I loved driving this car. It was fast and would burn the tires off easy with a loud roar.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I loved the model square body camaro.

Cons: I hated that the engine blew up within three months.

My Camaro — this is an amazing car to be driving anywhere. it only has a 305 manual. it has an aftermarket stereo, and i will be putting some more money in it eventually, but that is hard to come by these days.

Pros: it has t-tops and its a 5-speed

Cons: that it isnt complete

If You Can Get One In Great Shape, With Low Miles... Do It — 86 Berlinetta... 305hp. My first Camaro... after my first drive, I was hooked on Camaro for good. I got this car on a flat bed trailer. It was rusted and the interior was junk. It had 30k original miles on it. My dad and I restored it to the picture you see... this car was flawless after we were done. Unfortunatly, I lost this car in a house fire the second year I owned it. As for the car, extremely fun to drive!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sweet ride!

Cons: none

The Most Fun Toy I've Ever Owned — Even for being a 305 the car will still throw you back in the seat, has 80"s typical cloth, vinyl, and plastic interior. The car does have rust underneath the rocker skirts, but not too bad for having been driven in 24 wisconsin winters. Having a 14 gallon gs tank and a fuel thirsty carbed V8, the gas gauge goes down pretty fast. Even for needing some work, the car still gets a few looks.

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

Pros: It's a Z28

Cons: Your a ford guy
