Following suit of my father who's first car was a '67 Camaro, I purchased this as my first car in 1998. It was big, it was loud, it was fast in a straight line. It was great.  I immediately put it to service in the F-Stock class of the Ohio Valley Region SCCA autocross and raced fairly competitively there for 5 years against some great Mustang competitors. With a live rear axle it was never going to turn in well, but it sure was fun convincing it to try. I stayed in F-Stock for budget reasons and had just a few bolt ons .  This car was also my primary learning ground for car audio systems. It saw a number of custom installations over the years and was easy to work on.  The car was driven hard for 70,000 some miles with next to no mechanical issues what so ever. Chevrolet hit the sweet spot of reliability and low cost power with this one. After a long, loving relationship, it was time to move on to bigger and better things .

Always loved this body style and the black roof. Would pass the Chevy dealership and stare at the first gen of these while walking to work when my POS LeBaron was broken down - man I wanted one...
