1985 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta 5.0 305 from North America
A luxury sports car with balls
The only things that have gone wrong with it, have been the transmission, due to abuse.
Engine burned oil after 140,000 miles, new engine is now in the car. Not to say that the old motor stopped running, it would have gone forever.
T-tops have a leak, driver's side window is a little off the track.
This car is my favorite, with all the miles it had and still ran great.
Sure it smelled sometimes after 140,000 miles, but the car still had balls.
After abusing the transmission a little too much, I replaced it with a brand new one, and figured while I'm at it replace the motor too. For two weeks it ran excellent, now it's in the shop needed a new carburetor, and the window and door handles are being fixed.
Other than that, the inside is great, it's always been comfortable, especially in the summer with the T-tops off.
The outside is beautiful, new royal metallic blue paint, and some little fog lights. Oh, and the digital dash, got to love that!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My Berlinetta is an awesome car, lots of power, actually it usually beats z28's and IROCS. Berlinetta all the way.

I bought my Berlinetta almost a year ago, paid $300.oo for it.
Runs great, no smoke or noise from engine compartment. Former owner didn't know what he had.
The car needs some TLC, but with some time and patience, this little jewel will be one BAD ride.

I just got my '85 Berlinetta a month ago, for 1500, and it was a steal. Even though it's high on miles now, it still runs better than most foreign cars I've had. I've started working on it, and can't wait until I'm done! Only negative thing I have to say on it is the fact that the digital speedometer stops tracking at 85.

I bought a berlinetta 3 months ago for 600. it runs great just needs valve cover gaskets and some work on the digital dash. this car offers fun times I am proud to own it.

I have seen a SS camaro lose to a stock regular mustang. Any person knows that should of not happened the camaro should of spanked the mustang. but the driver has a lot to do with how fast he can get the car to go.;--Jason Lambert.
