The 90's style Camaros look great, especially the convertibles. With a V8 engine rumbling it makes you feel like a king. No doubt about it, they are fun cars to drive. Looks can be deceiving though. The RS Camaros are not true sports cars. At 170 HP they are fairly slow. They aren't practical either. Poor gas mileage (around 20 mpg) and horrible handling in rain/snow make them very dangerous to drive for even the most experienced driver. Repair costs are through the roof for the older models, which is pretty frequent. A new convertible top will cost close to $1000 to get replaced which is usually necessary about every 5 years
Style, handling, sound of the engine, convertible top, and interior design. A definite head turner
I have a 91 RS with the 5.0 v8 (170hp, 255lb/ft) with an aftermarket exhaust, and it is extremely fun to drive. Camaros are popular cars, but there aren't a lot of good looking third gens on the road, adding to the fun of owning one.
T-tops, v8 is strong and decent on gas, trunk is great for subwoofers, turns a lot of heads
Interior noise over bumps, front is VERY low to ground (don't go in up parking lot entrances, park on the street).
I recently purchased a 91 Covertible
camaro with the 305 V-8, and I have to
say, this is the most fun car to drive
that I have ever owned. The motor is
strong, the car handles like a vette,
and the convertible is a MUST have! I
will own this car the rest of my life,
no doubt about it. My advise is, buy
one of these cars, because before you
know it, they will be HISTORY!
CONVERTIBLE!!! Just plain fun to drive!
You might want to consider the larger V-
8 (the 5.7 350ci). The 305 is a good
motor, but the 350 is PERFECT for this
