    Great For Cruising Fun, But When Beat On Too Much... Repairs Come Into Play. — Great handling. Acceration after 2nd gear is good. Common problems for me were the piston rings, clutch, and transmission. The transmissions on these cars were not for sport cars at all, but more for 4 cylinder sedans. So as you can see if you update the tranny and rear end, nothing could stop you from fully upgrading the engine after that. Gas mileage is terrible... 14-18 mpg, but fun to drive and easily spotted by cops.

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

    Pros: Body style, handling, and speed/accelleration of higher gears.

    Cons: Transmission, clutch, piston rings, and mpg.

    Mid-life Car — What can I say. I was in my mid-life crisis period, wanted performance and something to catch the ladies eye. Went fast and attracted a lot of fine blondes who wanted to ride and pose with the car in car shows. Awesome ride.

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

    Pros: Speed, styling

    Cons: Ummm...Maybey Feleony Recless Driving if Caught at speeds above 100 which was easily obtained

    Favorite — performance. is there as soon as you hit the pedal. GOTTA B STANDARD. build quality all t-tops leak. get a coup of a convertable apperance. I LOVE it, could never make anything hotter. and i love the dash since its not like a cock pit. Cost of ownership. gotta have the patients for something this old. gas is acctually pretty good for a V8 FUN FACTOR-my hole day gets better when i drive her, or just see her sparkel

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

    Pros: the handline.

    Overall — The performance is all around great, I had a set of 3.73 ring and pinion gears in it and it had very nice acceleration...little too twitchy, though...it would lite up the 10" wide tires at any speed. I put a set of 2.73 gears into it so I would get better mileage on the 40 mile (each way) drive to school. It doesn't accelerate as fast off the line, but once it gets up to about 25mph, it's smooth sailing. I know it will outrun the '08 Mercedes SLK. The handling is all around amazing: tight turning (especially for a 16' car), it hugs the road perfectly through any turn and at any speed. Overall the fast response turning, great speed, great acceleration, and fine-tuned 5-bolt suspension make this car as close to perfect as most people will ever be able to afford.

    Pros: HP, FT*LB, Speed, Handling, Appearance, T-Tops, Quality

    Cons: Gas and Tire costs

    1988 Camaro Rs — Great looks, good handling, t-tops are great for summer, fun car to drive. 2.8L V6 is anemic and weak. Get a V8. Breaks often, but it was a used car. Fun to drive with a V8, V6 is boring. Great car if you love american muscle with big brawny V8s. A 383 would make any camaro a screamer.

    Pros: Looks, great aftermarket parts, potential to be a fast car

    Cons: Reliability, leaks, ect
