Excellent Camaro

Faults:

I had to replace the fuel pump when I bought the car.

General Comments:

I bought this 1992 Camaro RS in 2007 from the original owner. It had 133,411 miles at the time of purchase, and I had to replace the fuel pump to get it to run properly.

Ever since I have been very pleased with my car. I drive it daily to and from work, which is 120 mile round trip per day.

The gas mileage is the surprise. It has a V8 305 TBI and I average 23 miles to the gallon city and highway combined, and have gotten 26 miles per gallon on highway use only. It is in excellent condition and I will pass it on to one of my grand children.

When I hear negative things about this car, I find it hard to accept. Except for the fuel pump (when I bought it), this car has never left me on side of the road. I have had a car do that to me and it is not a good feeling.

Summary:

Amazing car

Faults:

Nothing has gone with this beautiful car.

I need to get the car clear coated and it is going to look like the day it drove out of the showroom.

General Comments:

I got the car just recently for 3,000. The brand new engine has 4,000 miles on it.

I love the car to death and I'm glad I went with the Camaro instead of Mustang. The 305 will crap on a newer stock Mustang.

Everything about this car is great and it's the smoothest shifting vehicle I have drove.

I fell in love with this car the moment I saw it, and then I became obsessed with it the moment I drove it.

Thank god I got this car from a great GM mechanic who knew the service manual front to back. The car is all stock and sounds great.

305 = 4cyl Mustang; you are dreaming. The 305 is not Chevy's best engine, though it is better than a 307.. I'd put in a small journal 327 from an early 60's Chevy. A Mustang won't be able to touch you then.

Summary:

Great

Faults:

I own a 92 RS white with red strips, weld wheels and low pro tires. It's powered by a 305 that I just pulled out today.

I will be doing a total new motor. Everything is going to be new, right down to the crank.

The problem was that I just bought this car at the Grand Rod Run in Sevier county, TN. I paid $3,000 for it, but it smoked. One of my rings is hanging up and dumping oil on top of the piston. Oh well, when I took the valve cover off, it was sludge. This is what happens when you put penzoil in it.

The motor only had 58,000 on it and the car looks great. I was going to put my 350 4 bolt main in it, but I want the numbers to match just in case I want to sell it years down the road. I guess the 350 will just lay in the corner of my garage until I find a home for it.

If anyone wants to buy a Camaro from any year, you want stock or strip, then you have to come to the big Grand Rod Run; it happens about 2 times a year, the next one is July. Thousands of muscle cars from all years.

General Comments:

Handles great, and also is a real head turner; it must be the loud rumble it has.

This car is great for running through the Smoky Mountains, which are just a mile from my house.

Put the 350 in and build that motor, you won't be sorry.
