1975 Chevrolet Camaro RS
Really safe and comfortable
I can say nothing special has gone wrong with my car, except the pedals.
The brake pedal broke once.
I got some problems with the lights.
I really enjoy driving this car. It's just great. I feel so comfortable inside the car.
I have no fear from accidents. I really feel safe with this car. The only problem is that I don't feel safe in any of these new cars.
I had no special problems with the engine. I have just changed the oil and water in this year and as mentioned above the brake pedal broke, and I think this is usual for a 27 year old car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It is a nice looking car, however, I wouldn't call it SAFE. Everybody knows that older vehicles were deathtraps.

"Older vehicles were deathtraps"
Are you really serious or was that just a sarcastic comment??
Just because in new cars you have fancy gizmo's like E.S.C, Traction control, and S.R.S systems does NOT mean that vehicles without all these (great systems, don't get me wrong) systems is a "death-trap". Look at it this way, in older cars if you did not know how to drive, you'd be taken out of the game pretty quickly!!! LOL. But seriously, "older" cars are in some ways not as "smart" safe, but in them you'd have a better chance of walking away and driving away from a crash due to better construction and higher quality materials. Like Iron.

Yes, you're right, like the iron dashboards that killed so many because they provided no cushion whatsoever. It's been long proven that the older vehicles were very dangerous, mostly BECAUSE of their heavy metal frames. The frames didn't provide enough give in an accident. When you get in an accident, you WANT the frame to bear the brunt of the blow, the older vehicles transferred all of that energy into your body. Not to mention that they lacked seatbelts! Maybe you don't like seatbelts, but the fact is, they do save lives.

All cars built in 1975 had basic safety features such as three point safely belts and padded dashboards. I know because I drove them. These cars did not have metal all around the interiors for people to bounce off. The Camaro had high back front seats to protect the occupants from whiplash in the event of an accident.
My 1969 Ford Galaxy had a padded interior. The lap belt could be attached to a shoulder belt that was stored neatly along the ceiling.
