Love this car. Affordable, good looks. Some of the best suspension for a factory vehicle. Engine and transmission are great.
Handles great. NOTE: front wheels are toe'd out (easily adjusted) which makes for great cornering but on the highway the tires will grab any surface imperfections and go that direction. Makes the driver pay attention.
Convertible top works flawlessly and the material that it is made out of is excellent. Material is like a heavy canvas with good texture and looks.
Common to this model: window motors burning out because of low voltage. I installed an aftermarket window motor wiring kit.

I bought this Camaro with 100K on it.
It runs and looks new.
It was owned by a preacher's daughter (really) and she babied it.
I wanted a car that was better on gas than my 4x4 F150.
This Camaro has been turning in mpg between 28 and 31 in mixed town and interstate driving. I had in mind of buying some boring 'old guy' car like a Buick Century.
This lil Camaro is so much more better looking, more fun and better mpg to boot. I love this car.

I purchased my 2001 Camaro SS back in 2004; it was 3 years old, and had 18k miles. The original owner purchased it and hardly drove it, as he had several cars. The car has t-tops, LS1, and a 6 spd manual trans. The car has more power than most need in stock form; in modified form, it can make a lot more. The LSI engine is bulletproof (if you maintain it) and fairly ecomomical for a large V-8. I have made several 600-700 mile road trips on the highway, and averaged 25-27 mpg! The 6 spd has a double overdrive, so at a steady 70-75 mph, in 6th gear, it is only turning @1500 rpm on the tach (it idles at 850 rpm)! The car is well built, and has no rattles or leaks (it has 48K miles).
