Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: saw it on google
hi i was in your case a couple years ago im only 17 but i would recomend a 93-02 if your not very mech inclined or dont have a lot of money i wouldnt get a 3.4 most likly the 98-02's with a 3.8 for good gas millage and going fast but if your into fixing your car atleast once a month go ahead and get an older one like 82-92. my first camaro was a 85 with the 2.8 and i never went a month without it breaking down but if your looking for power or want to add stuff on or change the engine maybe go with a v8 it goes through alot of work to change em from 6 to 8 later on i did that in my 85 firebird took FOREVER n wasnt to cheap on the wallet ive never owned an older model like 2nd gen so i cant say the goods or bads on those but ik my camaro now 95 camaro convertible with a 3.4 n auto is very reliable just not that fast but gets bout 28mpg depending on how i drive it lol but looking for fast n good mpg n reliable id go with bout a 98 with a 3.8 manual if u can find it(gets better gas depending how u drive it) plus its cheaper on insurance since the price starting droping around model year 2001 (last time i checked) but if you want a car with a v8 buy a v8 but if u dont care about that get a v6 hope this help ya

thanks i was looking at a v8 it's a 92 but its only 1600 bucks plus a t top. i think i'll start there and when if i ever get enough money i'll buy a newer one. it's a drag not having any cash. funny thing my 2001 b4000 has a :headbang: v6 and a 92 305 gets better gas mileage go figure. if you know anyone interested in buying it please tell me thats how i plan to buy my camaro, and until then i'm pretty screwed. unless i can find one for 10 bucks lol
see ya........ vroom

Trying tossing this question into the Drivetrain / Transmissions / Rear Ends topic. Other than general hellos and welcomes, you won't get nearly as good of a response here as you would in the specific topic. :)

I can squeeze out 28mpg (highway) out of my 305 TPI & 5spd std with the 3.08 rear end. That's pretty decent.
