I bought this car used in 2004 with 11,000 miles on it. Went from New Orleans to Grand Ledge, Michigan to get it sight unseen. Turned out to be worth the trip. My first ride was the 1000+ mile trip back home with the car in which it performed flawlessly, even in the tropical storm, (no roof leaks) at my return to Louisiana. Fuel efficiency was unbelievable on this trip considering the power. This car has remarkable power, but is a mild mannered city cruiser with a better than average ride when your foot is not heavy on the gas. Exterior styling is excellent with the black top on a black car and chrome 5 spoke wheels. Exhaust note is awesome when you get on the accelerator.
Acceleration and exhaust sound. Ease of covertible top use. Gas mileage for a car with this much power is incredible. Monsoon stereo with CD changer is better than average.
A new Camaro with retro styling to compete with Mustangs would be a start, and one which would rival the soon to be released Shelby Gt500 would be a great way to unveil it. Maybe Chevy could beat the release date of the Shelby for a can't miss marketing strategy.
