I started out leasing Baby and loved
her so much I decided to buy her after
3 years. She's quick to react due to
her tight steering. She's a beauty to
look at, but her power is deceiving.
She's relatively slow off the line and
pick up is delayed when you really need
the old drag racing power that she's
remembered for. T-tops are fun, but can
be cumbersome to manage and !!HOT!! to
touch when she's been in the sun. She's
a unique exterior design, you don't
find that type of identity with the
Accords, Civics, Camrys and Corollas.
When she comes barreling down the road
everyone knows her name.
BOOMIN' MONSOON sound, T-tops, tight
steering has gotten me out of some
tight spots. (Usually between grandma
and an 18 wheeler)
Water drains into trunk/rear speakers
when it's raining and the hatchback is
opened. NO trunk space. Needs a sub-
woofer w/ the upgraded stereo system.
She hydroplanes before it even starts
raining. She can't compete with the
same size engine in a foreign car.
Best car I've ever owned. "A corvette
with a back seat" Can not find
performance like this for the money. I
own a 2000 Camaro z28 with t-tops, it
is seabring silver metallic with black
leather. It is just beautiful. It can
be sporty, a muscle car and it can be
classy all at the same time.Great for
everyday driving, or for just cruisin
around. I love this car so much and
would never trade it for another so
5.7 350 c.u. LS1 motor
More than enough power
Just a LEGEND
I love this car! If you are looking
for high performance at a relatively
inexpensive cost, this is (or was)
your best option. 305hp (before
modification), excellent brakes, very
good fuel economy for the size of the
engine, and above all...it's a fun car
to drive. I'm very sad that it is
gone because the Mustang GT (not the
$35k-$40k Cobra models) is now the
only V8, RWD car left in the $25k-$30k
price range, it it doesn't even come
close to the performance of the Z28 or
cockpit...all the controls are easy to
A little higher quality materials in
the interior would upgrade the "feel"
of the interior. But if the price is
going to rise, I would take the
tradeoff of cheaper materials for the
performance of the car.
The car is obviously very attractive.
The interior creates a cacoon around
whoever is in the cockpit. The 200 hp
power plant under the hood of the base
model is quite a peppy engine. It does
not compare to the V8 ,but if your
looking for a V6... this is it! I have
a flowmaster 80 series exhaust on my
Camaro with two stainless steel flat
tips like the Z 28, and it looks very
nice. Upon start-up it sounds
GREAT!!!, not as good during
acceleration, but if you want to turn
some heads when you turn the key, this
will do the trick. Overall an
excellent car, and a great buy. Take
care of it, and it will last you a
Practical, performance, economy. Yes, I
am talking about a Camaro Z28! 25 MPG
average, 300plus HP, seats 4, has
carried china cabinets, 15 bags of
mulch, dinette sets, or 30 days worth of
"on the road" stuff, and goes from 0 to
60 in six seconds.
It never let us down, saved our life
when a SUV decided to change lanes at 70
without looking, never too hot with the
shades in, a convertible with the T-tops
out, and for safety, features Rear Wheel
Drive (as opposed to Wrong Wheel Drive -
one must never let ones tires turn,
stop and go all at once!)
Price, Performance, Versatility,
Economy, Handling, Styling, Reliability,
What more could one ask from a car?
Yes, it is the BEST GM car I have ever
owned (out of 14) and sadly, because of
their abandonment of this market, it
will be the LAST new GM car I will ever own.
Re-introduce it! They were selling
50,000 a year, but they killed it.
Affordable at $25,000 when new ,loaded.
In 2004 there will be a "GTO", but I
won't be able to afford it's almost
$40,000 price, and now, there is no 4
seat RWD car that GM makes. Pathetic.
