Summary:

Just a super, super sports car

Faults:

The previous owner had put in a new fuel pump, air conditioning pump, and had the windshield replaced due to a crack that ran lengthwise along the lower edge. I, personally, have had the Camaro a couple of months and haven't had a thing go wrong with it.

General Comments:

The car looks sharp and gets looks wherever I go, especially with the T-tops out!

I love the throaty exhaust sound, and the V-8 under the hood.

I am also amazed by the good gas mileage I am getting, especially with a 305 V-8. I get about 28 miles per gallon freeway/ 18 - 20 miles per gallon city.

Summary:

I love this car

Faults:

There were a list of things that went wrong with the car, but nothing now that I am running it once again.

I have adjusted the lifters, replaced headers, changed oil, tuned up the engine, and will soon be painting it. But this is nothing not to expect from a car this old with almost 100k on the clock.

Car had a bad previous owner that pummeled it, and it came out smelling like a rose. It has endured many tests to prove it's worth and has met each challenge with optimal success.

General Comments:

Car is sleak, fast, able to be modified. Great color despite how clear coat wears off fast if stock.

Car can hold almost any engine.

Car has sharp ground effects only available on 91 and 92 third generation camaros.

So, although it now won't start, for 554 miles it was the greatest car you ever drove?

Summary:

A $500 steal

Faults:

Replaced the starter.

Replaced the cooling fan.

Replaced almost the entire interior.

Replaced the belt tensioner.

Replaced the fuel pump.

Replaced the oil pan (that was my fault).

Replaced one fuel injector.

Replaced the fan motor for the vent system.

General Comments:

I bought the car for $500 dollars and it had been badly abused. It did not run when I got it, but a vacuum leak was to blame for that. Nothing major has gone wrong. Everything that has is due to abuse.

The car handles like no other and part of that is due to having less weight in the front because it is a V6 car. It will smoke almost any Honda or other 4 banger out there. There are some that will take it thought because the car still weighs a lot. It has a huge rear window that weighs a ton and it is definitely a car you park in a shady place (I live in Phoenix).

I love the cockpit it fits me so nice. It is like a glove or an old shoe. I get about 14.5 miles per gallon in town, so that is about 238 miles on a tank of fuel and right now that is rather affordable. I drive it a minimum of 23 miles a day through rush hour and in the afternoon when it is over 110 degrees Fahrenheit. The car performs flawlessly.

I do admit I would like to have a manual transmission but you can't have everything you want for your first car. Total I am about $1,500 into the car and that is not bad, I owe nothing on it. Not having a car payment is nice. Insurance is not bad either it is $3 less that a 1991 Caviler with a 4 cylinder and 4 doors.

Overall it is a great car and I could not be happier. It needs a paint job but that is just cosmetic and will come in due time. I would not trade this car... well I would trade it for a Corvette or a Lotus.
