I love these things. A buddy of mine in high school had a black one. We blew a head gasket on the highway one day but otherwise, the thing was a hoot. A few years ago, I nearly bought one from a family friend who autocrossed it, so it can be done. The tuning potential is infinite.

last tuesday i was driving home ,with my 21 month old daughter , and not even a mile away from my house , when some IDIOT!!! ran a stop sighn, i missed him but not a concreete poast. Thank God we werent hurt , the camaro wasnt damaged too bad , the left front corner of the hood is cracked and the turn signal ,and nose are jacked up ,but it didnt tear it up that bad .

the mastercylender went bad , couldn't find any in local parts stores , so ordered 1 from 1 of those parts stores ... it was bad too , got another 1 it holds pressure until you let off the pedal, then pump them up , this 1 must be bad too .

Well My youngest daughter will be turnning 2 this year , and The Camaro is doing great . I worked out the break issues , made a home made power bleeder , and did it myself , well with the help of God :-) ... I have been driving it every day the weather allows , Thank God we havent had a lot of snow this year . Oh when I am able to get everything togeather I'm gonna put 1 of 2 engines in it , just not sure which one , a strong 350ci with 202 heads or a de/stroked 350 thats a 331 now, and a T-5 that i have laying around . either way it should be fun .

Well ' last month the transmission in my camaro had issues now it pulls in low gear but wont shift at all 'got another 700r4 ' but still have to put it in, but would rather put the T-5 in, but still have some parts to pick up to do that.
