Cargo Capacity Ranked 1987 Chevrolet Camaro better.
"similar cargo capacity in both vehicles."
Would Buy Ranked 1987 Chevrolet Camaro better.
"The Camaro had a 5.0 Tuned Port EFI V-8 versus the Firebirds four barrel carburated V-8. The Camaro was slightly faster but both will win you speeding tickets."

Great!! — I would recommend this model to anyone looking for a great ride. Fast, furious and fun. Great to look at and to drive. accellerates smoothly, cruises nicely at 80 mph, seems to hunker down, grip the road and go. Good brakes, relatixely quiet cabin, nice ride.

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

Pros: Looks great, long and low, real head turner, fast.

Cons: Too long, hard to park, gas mileage only 16 mpg.

Great Car! — Like almost everything and dislike almost nothing! Could use a little more hp and front bucket seat is a little uncomfortable and a little hard to get out of. But the 'bird looks and sounds great! The car runs really well and accellerates nicely and brakes very well. The car is a riot to drive and its size makes one feel secure but the t-tops cause some vision problems as they reflect off the mirrors. Cverall, however, this is a fine ride, well manufactured and fun to drive. I am proud to own this vehicle.

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

Pros: Overall, I really love this car! It is in GREAT condition, as close to "showroom" as I have ever seen. Ext. and int. both almost perfect. One owner, until me, never seen a snowflake, garaged since day one. The car was ordered by the original owner to his specifications so I have options most 'birds never would have: pwr door locks, pwr windows, am/fm,ac,rear defroster.

Cons: Gas mileage(16-18) and a little under powered.

My Car — this cars preformance is amazing compared to when i first bought it the engine was missing a lot of parts in which the engine isn,t even for this car its older 5.0 rebuilt a lot of the cars fuel lines, its struts, and diffrent parts of the engine. the body is in good shape there isn't much rust at all, the drivers side t-top leaks a little but thats hard to prevent on old cars. the hood is pretty messed up because of the sand dammage and salt damage from the coast of california. it gets bout 25 mpg on highway and about 15 city. this car is super fun especially on a dirt road.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it rides like a caddi

Cons: its apperance

My 87 Firebird — It's a great car that needs some work. It's fast for the year. The build quality could be better but it's typical of 1987.The car is very fun to drive fast and it corners well if it has good tires.

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

Pros: The feel of the 80's that it gives you.

Cons: spark plugs a pain to change

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

Pros: True sports car

Cons: Gas milage but who cares

Man I Love These Cars! — This is my 1987 Firebird Formula. It's got a 305 HO V8 5.0 liter Carborated engine. 205 HP with the headers, top speed 140mph. Haven't tested the acceleration yet, but it certainly likes to take off... it's got a posi rear-end but i don't know the gear ratio...

Pros: Fast, fun, great shape, no rust love the body style

Cons: Needs a bit of paint by the t-tops and quarter panels, not much though, engine needs a little tweeking, interior needs some love and the wiring is driving me crazy...
