Picking up chicks, roaring on main street, gliding threw the curvy back roads like a magic carpet. only a few thing that these car do excellently. most of the v8 Firebirds and Camaros have been BEATEN!!! and are now rusted and have more parts around them on the lawn than in them. If you want a car to burn the rubber off the wheels and leave a strip on the pavement get one with a v8 in it already (specifically a 350 (5.7 L) not a 305 (5.0 L) but if you want a car that you can say "I made this car the way it is" get a v6 (which will not been beaten!!!) and take the time and money to get a great engine and drop it in. the parts that these cars came with were not specifically made for performance
There's nothing quite like rolling threw town with the T-tops down and embarrassing a mustang
These are not improvement directed towards the manufactures but the consumer* these cars were made right after the emissions and gas crisis so a lot of minor thing have been done wrong in the right ways to make these car good fixer uppers but not pick up and go cars
