Fast, beautiful, and a joy to drive
The day I drove it home from the dealer, the water pump blew. Replaced it in my brother-in-law's garage; about a three-hour job.
Carburetor went bad around 92,000 miles, needed to have that replaced.
Car went through brakes like candy, they needed to be replaced every 15,000 or so miles.
I drove it hard, so my Camaro needed new tires every so often. I probably replaced them four times during my ownership of the vehicle.
Speedometer was a little bit off for a year, which really started to bug me, so I got it replaced in 1976.
A lot of little rattles and minor annoyances while driving the car.
This car was actually a 1970 1/2 Camaro, perhaps the finest one ever manufactured. I purchased it used off of a dealer's lot for $3500, and sold it for three times that much four years later.
This was easily the fastest car I've ever owned; the amount of torque was just amazing; it went like a greasy cheetah.
However, it was not safe, and I needed money to put down on a house for my wife and I back then, so giving up the Camaro was a logical move.
Today, now that I'm older (and wiser), I would still love to have this car back, as a way of reliving my youth.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
