A Great First Car To Really Get A Begineers Feel Of How A Sports Car Feels, Sounds, And Drives. — This is an awsome car for anyone young kid that wants a hot looking sports car for a low price and a deep roaring engine with some decent pick up. I great first car for sure.

Pros: -Pretty inexpensive.
-Has a loud, deep, roaring engine (Very cool very sexy).
- Very dependable if you know the basics of car repairs and change the oil regularly.
- Has T-Tops which are always fun.
- Lots of room and space under the hood, that make it much easier for self-car repairs.
- Has a very big and open back windsheild, which makes for very easy visablilty of the road behind you, plus has very small blind spots.
-The automatic transmission comes with overdrive which makes for surprisingly good gas-mileage for a V-8. ( I would say around 18 miles a gallon).
- You are able to find any part you need at a Junk Yard, these baby's are a dime a dozen and can be found all over for replacement parts. (A little elbow greese goes a far way).
- Lots of foot room for the driver and front passenger of the car.
- Runs extremly well on long drives (Driving from San Deigo to Los Vegas for example) where you have a long stretch of road, while driving 70-80 mph.
- Not too crazy of speed or acceleration and is very easy to handle.
- A great first car.

Cons: -Though it has some good pick up, it isnt that fastest car on the road.
- If you have T-Tops on your model expect lots of leaks (Rain can be a huge bummer and soak your two back seats).
- Once this car hits 130,000 miles driven, expect all original engine parts to begin giving out and needing to be replaced within the next 6-8 months (This may vary depending on if you change your oil regulary and know the basics of car repairs).
- Engine will get very hot (but not overheat) when driving in stop-start traffic.(I would suggest not buying this car if you live in L.A. for example, but if you do. I suggest buying a after-market radiator fan or a lower temperature release thermostat.)
- If you do your own car repairs, replaceing the speedometer can be very unpleasent. (I would suggest going to a pick-N-pull and tearing  into a junked camaro to understand how you will replace it.)
- Has a pretty long nose; Can make it hard to proceed with short turns and parking in small and narrow places.
- With windows rolled up you will still hear a feint wind blowing sound as if your window was still rolled down just a little bit.
- When the windows are rolled down you do not get alot of wind circulation through the car when driving at low speeds do to the angle of the windows.
- I would not buy this car unless you can change your oil regularly (Chevy sports cars will run forever, but only if you know basic car repairs and can do all the basic check ups and fluid replacements regulary.)
- Very small leg room and over all room for any people that will be sitting in the back two seats (basically the back to seats are for is someone really needs to hitch a ride otherwise don't be expecting to have four people in the car daily.)
- Requires premium gas, which can be a con. I think of it as the cost of a fun toy.
- Does not have the best gas millage under 20 miles a gallon.
- Has a very loud engine so if your looking for something quite this isnt the car for you.

Everything A Car Should Be — My camaro has a 2.8L V6 and it is everything a car should be. It looks great, drives great, the 5-speed tranny gets you great gas mileage, and has really decent power and you wont pay so terribly much for insurance.

My Heart And Soul On Four Wheels. —

I got my first camaro back in 1998, she's the one in the avatar pic. Her name is Betseyblue. She's a baby v6 with 5spd and one heck of an attitude. I had just had my son 2yrs earlier so it was a awesome car for him to grow up in, She always got great gas milage when I was commuting from college to visit my parents. Great response around corners and avoiding deer or any other critter that tried to cross when I was going 70mph. I just recently got her back, and am debating on letting her go, which is very hard for me due to her being such a great car. She was sold only because I had recieved my fathers truck and I coudlnt afford to keep two vehicles at the same time. Even though, its been over 3yrs since I sold her, and she sat outside for some of that time during the seasons, I got her back. Now she sits in my driveway, but starts up every time and purrs like a kitten. She's got a bad frame, so I'm debating what to do with her. But its hard to let go of such a beauty, so for now, she sits while I try to do what I can with her in the mean time with a limited budget. Overall, my rating for this type of car, is 5 stars all the way! This is a car you can fall in love with, even if you never meant too.

Chevrolet Starting To Get It Right. — I owned an 1989 IROC as well as a 1986 IROC. The TPI injection produced tons of BHP. And I remember being pinned to the seat the first time I really got into the throttle. I currently own a 1989 Camaro RS I got this car as I project car. But I can recommend the IROC model as it is great right from the showroom floor.And now there are tons of after market products to really get the power this car is able to produce. I know of many peolpe that have only gotten 400BHP and more from these cars. Good luck and enjoy your car. Thats the most inportant thing in any car that you own. Enjoy it and take great care of it.

I Own A 1989 Rs Camaro And I Love It, Starting Problems At Times,but A Great Ride — I paid about $2600.00 when i got it and spent $4000.00 in fixing it up and it runs great. All the interior is good and no cracks in the dash board or nothing and even the ceiling is flat and not hanging. The mileage is 297000 and still going strong.

A Work In Progress. — The lack of horsepower and a better gear ratio from the factory would have been nice. There are also some models that will be worth a chunk of change in the future. I wish that the upgrades weren't so exspensive. Having a serp. belt and not the old V-belts set up.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a chevrolet for starters. Parts are easy to find an usually cheaper in price. There are many upgradeable suspension parts for front and the rear. You can use the sway bars from an I-Roc Z/28. They are slightly larger in size and performance link kits and bushing that improve handling. That's what I've done intil I save the money it takes to buy upper and lower control arms. I know every bolt and nut size an it's location. I've built 3 different years of 3rd. gens. You can adjust your pinion angle for better traction by installing a aftermarket component that mounts to the tail end of the tranny.

Cons: Not a full framed under carriage. Needs a rack and pinion like the 4th generation. The steering sucks @$$!!!!!! The biggest con is that it isn't a 1st. Gen.
