Great Acceleration — I love the way it accelerates and corners. The 3.8L v6 has plenty of potential.

Awesome — I just bought my 1997 Camaro RS convertible. It's 17 years old now, and only has 45,000 miles on it. (Yes really, only 45,000 miles) It is beautiful inside and out. I'm having the stock radio replaced with a satellite radio. Gets really good gas mileage, and love how everyone turns to look when the top is down. A learning curve that I have had to learn to do is park the car. I was used to my SUV and parking anywhere, and this car is so low to the ground that I had to learn not to park close to things, and that I can't drive some places if it's steep incline or decline. It drags.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Slick look, makes people turn and look

Cons: Very low to the ground and sometimes it's hard to get out of if cars are parked too close.

I Really Enjoy This Car, But Couldn't Drive It Every Day. — My wife and I bought this 30th Anniversary Camaro as a weekend cruiser. It works great for that purpose...and only that purpose. Getting behind the wheel makes you realize how far cars have come in the last 15 years both in terms of fit/finish and performance. The steering is slow and vague, especially for a sports car. The T56 gearbox is industrial, yet effective. Acceleration is quick, but not fast. The suspension rolls into corners and the rearend jumps around when the road is less than perfect. It is a lot of fun to drive in that it demands your attention to be driven smooth and quick, but can be a pain in everyday driving situations. However the LT1 motor does make plenty of low end torque and it's perfect for summer car cruise nights.

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

Pros: It's real 'Merican muscle.

Cons: It was made in an era gone by.

Rollin In Chevy Muscle Again — I have resurrected this car from a previous owner who had given up on her. She was giving him overheating issues so they parked her in the field. She sat there from 02/08 till 03/12 when I took her. Shes gonna take a few dollars in repair and alot of TLC but she will get it and be rolling proud again

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

Pros: Price was right I bought it for $900, put $200 worth of parts in it and now shes back on the road

Cons: I really HATE that the engine is mounted so far back under firewall/windshield mundane repairs such as tune up is a real pain in the ass.

Nice Sleeper — Great car but needs work to get it where i want it. I have put new motor transmission suspension interior system and painted interior. needs paintjob though. i want to change the hood wing rims and tires. would like to put a body kit but keep the front bumper cause this car just looks mean from the front

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

Pros: This car is great once you up the horsepower and put better suspension.

Cons: lack of power from the factory
