I never heard one of these cars running. Does it sound hilarious or it has some growl to that engine? I'd love to see a 0 to 60 time. I don't think there are many 4cyl left.

Person walks into dealership. "I want the cheapest Camaro you can put me in" and it was born.

Uh, are you sure? The unit in the auction has a cassette slot under the preset buttons, and the sticker even says its a cassette deck.

I had a white 88 Formula... I sold it in 1994... Big mistake. Lots of memories in that car, my first thirdgen.. I met my wife in that car. Don't sell it!

My first car was an '83, Iron puke, t-top, sport coupe, Camaro with a 4spd and rally wheels.

They will do about 65mph tops, and that feels like the nuts and bolts will start exploding from the motor.

I at least bought it to small block swap it, but a buddy totalled it before It happened.
