It is red with a black interior and T-tops which offers convertible like experiences. It is low to the ground but doesn't feel like it, and whips around corners at a frenzied pace. The car is still running beautifully after 60,000 miles and shows no signs of slowing down. The engine purrs like a champ, and runs loud as any sports car should.
Story
There is a road called Crystal Brook Hollow that looks like you are riding to the BatCave. Once, my friends in I went up there in my car and saw swamp gas which looks like green orbs floating in the air and it was a cosmic experience.
Pros
Love the T-tops, as they offer both a hardtop and convertible like experiences at a whim, plus offer views into the sky. Acceleration is fast upon push of the pedal, and beats many cars on the road without issue. It catches the eye with its contours and shape, and many seem impressed by its presence alone.
Cons
The Camaro does have the tendency to hydroplane in extreme weather, or at the very least if there is a lot of water on the road. The factory stereo and speakers are not very good, and from what I hear they were terrible coming out of the factory. Also, poor gas mileage which was to be expected from any sports car, and this is no exception. My Camaro eats gas like nobody's business, to the effect that I have to spend at least $50 a week if not more, even when I am not on a work schedule. I wish it was more efficient in that regard, but the car was not built for efficiency.

1986 Chevrolet Camaro - This car is one of my favorite cars of all time growing up. Being born in the '80s I always wanted an '80s Camaro.

This vehicle is one of my most favorite vehicles growing up, along with the Pontiac Trans Am and Ford Mustang. I love the T-tops and the aggressive sounding exhaust. Dislikes are that the interior is very cheaply made and cracks and breaks over time. Power out of the engine could be better but runs strong.
Story
Just use it for a daily car show or cruise. However, I did meet my wife when I was driving it. I'm not sure if the car was an attraction to her or not, but I can say that we mat the first time when I was standing in front of the car. It gets a lot of notice as it has a very rare limited-edition hatch that you very rarely see.
Pros
Sports car, fast, good braking, handles excellent—like a convertible, engine durable, and transmission shifts well.
Cons
Interior is cheap, poor over the shoulder visibility, only rear seat lap belts (no shoulder belts), T-tops slight leak, heater and A/C unit have little to no power, electrical issues, and rear defroster barely works.
