  • Such a shame you got rid of it. I think it's one of the best looking American cars ever and I'd loved it if you'd put an even more illogical sum of money to give it independent rear suspension. Perhaps you can get one again, only with the face lift and a manual box?

  • You had once talked about why someone might invest more in parts and repairs than an old car is worth, and mentioned emotional or sentimental value as being one reason. This Z28 underlines that precisely, and in this case it's totally justified. It is one of those cars that just screams to be driven, and once you've driven or ridden in it, you remember something like this fondly.

  • I disagree about the 5th Gen. It was a huge success and I think it outsold Mustang every year of its production. The 6th gen peformance wise is hands down the best Camaro ever made.

  • I just picked up a 2002 with a T-top in silver leather's a six banger but it's got 119 thousand miles and looks pretty cool and I'm over 65 so it's a good fit. Try a Morris Minor Woody Wagon if you like wood...I've owned two and I was going to go with yellow gold pearl...very lightly and with a jet with black fenders and yellow body and one with yellow fenders and a black body...yellow Oak wood. That way you can bet people they don't remember what color the fenders are and you always win....hehe.

  • I regret selling my 94 back in 2013 it had over 200k miles but still ran like a champ no matter how hard i beat it. Except the rearend i did heads and cam. I built the transmission to take the new power but the rearend grenaded lol but with the way i drove it i am surprised that's all that exploded.

  • So WHAT if they were “looking forward” with this thing? This is the ugliest Camaro body style of all! The 2010 and later Camaros are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Thank God Chevy looked back to the roots of what made muscle cars desirable instead of “forward,” because the ‘93-‘02 Camaro proves that sometimes “forward” really sucks.

  • In my opinion the 2010 Camaro was a failure because the chassis was too heavy And the fact that it was an Australian car chassis and then given to us just like the GTO they flopped because in America we want bad ass cars not used Australian car chassis rebadged I hope that trend ends

  • I love that car. I had the same year same engine. Everything the same except the color. My was marron with black on top. I really miss it. That was my first car. I I had the money, I would look for it and buy it at whatever price just to get it back. I think this is one of the best Camaros. Red with black is win win. I am a fan of red Chevy vehicles. I had a Chevy S10 Xtreme. After seen this video I am really looking for a Camaro again. Is a matter of time to find it.

This is the last of that." -Reverse flow cooling system that MIGHT go a week without a leak -Most advanced optical distributor of its time, pain in the ass to diagnose issues -Can't change water pump without removing fans, preferably radiator too -Better not take that Opti through a car wash with undercarriage spray... Not sure how you spent $4k...just did all you did plus front&rear pads/rotors, clutch & resurfaced flywheel, rebuilt steam pipe system, flushed all fluids, rear main, and a Hurst Billet-Plus shifter to top it all off. Spent right about $1200...

  • I'm sorry. This car is pure shit. I owned one, along with six other Camaros from 67 to 93 (drove a 69 Z28 in high school) and the 4th gen pissed me off so bad and it cost me a lot of money in repairs. The fourth generation is the reason they killed the Camaro. It was garbage and people knew it and stopped buying it.

You mean I actually have to DRIVE the vehicle! What? What a piece of junk! Whatever!!! I had a 97 SS that was an awesome vehicle!!! Got great gas mileage, had plenty of power, didn’t handle bad and looked great! Once it was out of warranty I did a 396 Lingenfelter, installed a full suspension kit from bilstein, added a x-brace from a convertible, strut tower braces and subframe connectors. After all that it was a beast!!! Walked away from many Vipers and corvettes!!!
