1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 2dr Coupe


The Z28 Camaro is an outstanding high performance car --- as American cars go it's second only to the Corvette. In addition to ballistic acceleration, tight handling, and great looks, the Z28 has outstanding brakes. The 350 ci-in iron V8 (with alluminum heads) pumps out 300 HP and has never left me waiting for a tow. The 4 speed automatic transmission, however, did break down at about 125000 miles and cost a small fortune to be rebuilt. With slightly bigger than factory wheels and tires it handles great. Visibility could be better. It's got it all --- great looks, high performance, and better than average reliability. I expect the 2010 Camaro Z28 to be just as great to own and drive.

Best Features

Blistering acceleration, tight cornering, and fantastic brakes. Definitely an all-American sports car.

Worst Features

Stiffer springs and anti-sway bar. Should come from the factory with a K&N air filter.
