Summary:

The Legend Lives..

Faults:

Transmission warning light came on around 70K miles, replaced transmission before slippage could become noticeable..

General Comments:

Surprisingly potent V-6 power and excellent handling and cornering ability.

Not the most comfortable on long trips.

Visual appeal is unmatched by anything else in the GM stable.

Excellent buy for those of us who cannot afford the high insurance/maintenence costs of the Z28 or SS.

Summary:

A race car in a street package

Faults:

Overall, nothing at all. Clutch was replaced at 114000 miles. Every LT1 motor I've come across has had an rear intake manifold oil leak around 100000 miles. I repaired it myself and saved about $600. Parts for the repair cost about $60. Dash has a couple of impossible to find rattles.

General Comments:

I've put about $2000 in the car in just performance modifications. Currently, it's got headers, a 104mm throttle body, cold air induction, exhaust, and short throw shifter. It's amazing what this car can do. I've dusted Corvette after Corvette, Trans Am after Trans Am, Cobra after Cobra. It runs like new to this day.

Summary:

Biggest bang for the buck

Faults:

The "Service Engine Soon" light comes on from time to time when I'm using the cruise control.

One of the wires to the rear defog-window fell off once. (The auto-glass-dealer soldered it on in 5 minutes.)

The windshield has got many scratches on the outside. Probably caused by bad wipers and dry sand on the windshield.

One of the brake rotors needed machining once.

General Comments:

This car is great driving, and it turns a lot of heads in the summertime. Because there are just 4 of this car in Norway.

I have great feel of the road, sometimes a bit too much. It feels like the rear axle is welded directly to the frame. But I can survive that.

A small minus is that the rear end has a tendency to slip when I'm accelerating out from junctions in the rain.

It's a shame that the F-body is discontinued. I wouldn't hesitate a minute about buying a new one.

Summary:

A high-performance road rocket

Faults:

Air Pump went bad (and subsequently had refund due to recall campaign)

General Comments:

This car is a beast. Out of the box it's got approx 260 rear-wheel horsepower, with about $500USD simple mods I'm up closer to 300.

The car suffers from minor irritating rattles and shakes in the dash - but these are well known and easily dealt with.

The handling is really good, and can be made easily better with simple bolt-on parts. Traction at wide open throttle could be better, but you've got a lot of power to deal with.

As a commuter car (As I've used this for, mostly) you'll have to deal with road noise and sometimes kidney-bruising ride. Traction in the wet can be a problem, but is alleviated with a good set of all-weather tires.

The T-Tops are a must have - nothing like cruising in a nice fast car with the tops out... without the hassle of convertible tops.

I love this car.
