The Camaro SS Conv. is a great muscle car. It's got the fabled LS1 and a T56 6-speed and makes a honest 350hp stock. These cars are fast and will easily smoke nearly any car on the road. The LS1 is an absolute gem of a motor, the only better one might be the supercharged 4.6L DOHC motor in the 03-04 cobra. Things you should know though, the interior is shoddy, and there is only room for short people in the back. It does get good mileage for what it is, expect 19-20 avg in mixed driving. It does have a long overhang and it feels like a big car. A Mustang GT feels smaller.
LS1, T56, easy to modify for more power. Oh and it's rear wheel drive, plus they don't make them anymore.
Power windows stink, they are slow and notorious for breaking (motors). Stock 10 bolt rear axle can't handle 400+ HP and drag slicks, it will break. The interior and controls are cheap and don't belong in a $32K car. The Mustang GT's interior is better (94 and up), no doubt.
