1997 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 SS lt4 5.7 from North America
As much fun as you can have with your clothes on..
Fuse blew twice.
All lights on the car had to be replaced.
Needed a radiator upon purchase of car.
One of my most favorite things about this car is the steering; it's weighted almost perfectly.
It's quicker than almost anything for this price. and then some...
It looks very unique and sexy with its deep set headlights and curves.
I had the choice of this, a supercharged Cobra and a 300ZX twin turbo and a 911. I chose this car over them all. 911 was fast but hideously ugly, the Cobra had no quality at all, and the 300zx was good, but not good enough.
I used to hate Camaros, but after driving this one, I love them, and am excited every day to go places in it. It makes me feel like I am 10, and I love it! It sounds so good as well.
If I dislike anything about this car, it's the freakin electronics in it. The car is sound, but the electronics can really give you a scare! Owning a muscle car can be a pain sometimes, but worth it for sure.
Honestly though, I got in a huge accident where a lady in a Tahoe smashed into me on the freeway, completely destroying my car. Totaled? I wouldn't let them... and I fixed the entire car for $400! Cheap parts and I didn't have a scratch.
This car is special, because you get the sense when they made it, they had sooooo much passion. And I am glad... very very glad...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hard to believe that you chose the Camaro over the others (unless they were all in salvage yards) and that your car was "completely destroyed", yet you fixed it for $400. What did you do, buy a new one? :)

No seriously, I just love this damn car so much. The Porsche was faster, but ugly as all hell. The Cobra had way too many problems, as with any Ford.

I actually bought the fender and the bumper used for $350, then molded the frame myself. Took about 6 hours, but it looks brand new. Then a new marker light and some touch up paint. $400.
