1997 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Z28 2dr Convertible


Review

This is a rare and somewhat hard to find with this low mileage. Car is all original including the tires. Manual 6 speed trans with 8,360 miles. It handles very well and really preforms outstanding. If it is a true 97 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Z28 it will only be Artic White with Hugger Orange strips. If you are looking at a SS and are told it is a LT4 be sure to confirm that it is real they are very expensive ( 106 built )

Review

My first car, 1997 Camaro Z28 V8 convertible, could not have asked for a better first car! It's been very reliable, head-turner, steering is smooth, handles great in rain and ice, only problems I ever had were with the windows but a simple motor problem, was easy to fix. The alternator needed to be replaced at 135,000 miles, but that was simple as well. And the black ragtop started to fade from the sun but treating it with oils brought back the black. Very fun to drive, was quick to get out of the way of bad drivers, roughly 18-22 city, 29 highway. Manufacturers sound system was excellent.


Best Features

Convertible! The power was excellent and gas mileage was great for a V8, loved this car!


Worst Features

Would have gotten a manual if I were to buy this car all over again, would have made it even more of a joy to drive.

Review

Bought my Z-28 with 80,000 miles on it and it still runs strong at 131,059 miles. Hands down one of the most realiable cars out there if you can take care of it. The most bang for your buck sports car out there. Beatiful styling, amazing torque, and good handling. Camaro will always have a spotlight in a world where performance it now a demand.


Best Features

5.7L LT1, convertible, speed


Worst Features

No longer manufactured.

Review

I have an RS 6 cylinder model Camaro.
The car is very fun to drive and has
plenty of power for a V6. I would
recomend this car to many people,
except for people who might have a
tough time gettin into and out of a
regular car. Camaro's, and it's sister
car the Firebird, are not real easy to
get into or out of. I would say that
is its only real draw back. The only
other real draw back would be the fuel
economy from the V6 model. My Camaro
gets around 18 mpg in a combination of
street and highway driving. That is
any where from 5 to 10 mpg less than I
thought I would get. Other than those
two liitle items, I really love my
convertible camaro.
