1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 V8 LT1 from North America

Summary:

A lot of bang for your buck, and a body style that will never get old

Faults:

The problems I've had were costly, but I would say reasonable for the year and mileage. I've had to replace the engine mount once.

I also needed the window motor for the driver side, and now the passenger side is going to need some work soon.

I also needed to replace the headlights twice, a lot sooner than expected or than my 1998 Camaro needed them replaced.

I also need new shocks, but that's all just maintenance, things can't last forever.

The interior is in great condition, the engine is super clean. I have kept my car entirely stock.

The previous owner was the first owner, she kept it stock (yes a girl, I'm a girl too!).

It had always been garaged until I took it. The paint has worn on the roof, but other than that the exterior is in good condition. I am very surprised at the rest of the paint on the car, it looks good and shines like new after a good waxing.

I think a lot of people who do have problems with this year and model, it might be due to previous owners running the car too hard without the proper knowledge for car and correct parts. Also they might have made too many modifications and something probably just isn't working right.

General Comments:

I love this car!

I feel completely safe in this car.

I once spun out on the freeway due to debris on the road. I seriously think I would have been dead in any other car. But with the handling and suspension I was able to gain control again during my spin out and safely pull over. I was shocked at the treadmarks left behind... they went straight across to the side of the road, but I swear I felt myself spin... must have been the shock. Anyway point is this car handled so great, I feel safe in it and while I have had close calls it has pulled me out without a scratch on me or it.

Even though it's an older car, the body is beautiful, even though it's large it still has that sleek and agile look to it.

A lot of bang for your buck.

I don't think I will ever be able to become accustomed to driving anything else... what to do when I have kids!!?? :)

I feel much the same way about my 95 Z28 (now sitting in my driveway awaiting a head gasket repair). When you have kids, do what I'm gonna do... child seats!

Or, a second car.

Summary:

Afraid to test drive a new one, if it's any better than this one, I will want it

Threads on the top rotted out at 100,100 miles.

Posi went out twice, replaced with a Currie 12 bolt, Eaton posi unit.

Two opti sparks replaced.

Driver's door window motor replaced once.

General Comments:

This is my second Z-28, and it has been the best. With a lot of power to get from point A to point B with a smile on my face. Had the 4L60E trans rebuilt to Corvette specs. Now my wife hates to ride in it, breaks my heart she won't drive. HA HA.

1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 5.7 lt1 350 from North America

Summary:

Attitude

Faults:

The optispark dist. went out three different times, and the price and location of the part on the car were a real drag!

General Comments:

This car is amazing. Great handling; you could make quick work out of Chicago traffic if it was moving.

Great performance. You could easily put the hammer down and the car behind you was a memory in few seconds.

This car never had a alternator, starter, or fail. Original motor, trans and rear-end. I molested this car at every chance I got and it only wanted more and more! Thanks Chevy; it is an amazing piece of work.
