Its Definitely A Sleeper The Way It Is Now, Nothing Fancy About The Outside, But Has A 350 Swap. — I love this car i have had it for about 5 years now and it is always there for me. It has so much potential, and was the first car i did a full engine/tranny swap on. Super fun to drive and every body loves Catfish!

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

Pros: SB 350 and a 700r4 tranny

Cons: None Its chevy!!

A Car For Looks — well I only put 187 miles on it since I bought it, loved it but I didn't buy it to drive it (obviously), its one cool looking car, and Americans love their cars, loved the idea to cruise around with the top down, and in eastern Washington that can happen a lot, great cruising weather here.

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

Pros: great car for that weekend stroll or that Sunday cruise, put the top down and have FUN, drove it to work for a week got 27mpg

Cons: none

Pretty Good Performing Car Overall And Looks Good To. — This generation camaro is my favorite but it definitely has some flaws. The V6 is underpowered barely making over 200hp at 210. This camaro isn't meant to have a V6 option which is why it's underpowered in the V6. It does look nice though and it can get up to speed with the manual transmission. I've seen 0-60 times of 6.9 to 7.2 depending on the driver. Overall it's a nice affordable sports car and I really like them.

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

Pros: Pretty good handling, decent power for small V6,

Cons: Engine is underpowered, interior could be nicer, handling response could be better

Looks Good But Easy On The Pocketbook — Stylish looks and good handling in a package which is aesthetically pleasing. This car is fun to drive with the 5-speed and fools most people into assuming that it is much speedier than it actually is. It might not pass all the cars on the road but surely passes the gas stations.

Pros: Sporty & economical

Cons: not much brute power

Awesome Slp — Love this car, truly a fun experience cruising around. Got the car from my father and I believe he was the 3rd owner. Amazing how good the paint looks, garage kept with car cover. Overall performance is pretty good from SLP; no mods yet but thinking about it!

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

Pros: Great sounding:  Two on the Left (TOTL) exhaust.  Complete SLP factory set up.  

Cons: Side mirrors do you no good because of the wide rear end.  Lack of storage

Simply Sweet! — I like everything about this car from the color combination to the power of the LT-1 to the gas mileage on the Highway while cruising with the top down! Very fast acceleration, excellent top end (140+), smooth handling along with superior braking.

Pros: Car is a real head turner. Lots of power along with looking sharp!

Cons: Nothing

Money Pit — Its a sports car. It sounds good, runs fast, and the A/C works. The LT1 engine is a waist of time and money. LS is the only way to go, unless you have a turbo or supercharger. I cant get rid of this car because I have around $28,000 in it and the car only coast me $3,000 when I bought it. If someone offered 15,000 I would sleep on it.

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

Pros: Fast street car with 420 rwhp

Cons: 8 miles to the gallon
