This car is a blast to drice,
especially if you crave American
muscle-car performace. V8 Power, a
loud exhaust, and that classic jet
fighter look, although later editions
of this rear-drive torque-monster have
a face like the Concorde, and we are
not talking about the supersonic jet
here either. On long trips the
harsness of the Z28 experience can get
on your nerves but the gas mileage
will be surprisingly good. I have
gotten 26 MPG in this car! driven
strictly around town expect a mere 16.
especially if you have a haeavy foot.
The Hatchback! What I meant is that
the LS1 V8 is the best engine I have
ever driven, the all-aluminumn beast
puts torque where I need it and the
crisp hard shifts of the 4-speed auto
make it happen very fast.
Bring it back? I don't know what else
to say, other that the Camaro went out
in total glory, right at it's peak in
terms of engineering. Much of its
technology lives on in the Corvette
and the new GTO for 2004.
