Fair enough. OP just remember, a car, regardless of what you buy, is a massive money pit. Insurance, gas, repairs (especially on an older muscle car that has likely been beat to hell).

Even if you saved for two years and had a car in your senior year of high school, you will be able to afford something much better.

There was just a nice, clean 1999(I think it was) Civic EX 2dr that sold for like $2200 in our area. Had 147k miles. I wanted it for a k-swap.

It's true the 2.4 motor in the Camaro a garbage, but the later V6 motors like the 3.4 and the 3.8 are pretty strong and reliable. And for 2k it will be a challenge but it is not impossible just don't be in a hurry to buy look around and drive more then one just as a comparison.
[IMG][/IMG]
Here is my 3.8 paid 4k in 2008 and I've drove it hard and still strong, but if you are planing on spending a long time with your Camaro give the V8 a second thought.

You should try and find a Third Gen with TPI, (305/350), the v6 will just leave you heartbroken. You need torque to do a burn-out. If you truly do want a v6 Pontiac made a Special Edition Turbo V6 FireBird. with the 350 about 1k and you are easily putting out 400+ hp. Just my 2 cents

You say that like the v8s in those cars weren't a massive disappointment...

What a dumb thread. Just get a cheap Corrola or sentra or something so insurance will be a little cheaper and the car will be better.

Were they? about 245 hp and 330tq. the car weights about 2900 lbs. No other car comes close to performance dollar for dollar. All im going to say is come out to Los Angles and I'll make sure you meet the correct Camaro to stomp what ever car you drive

The correct camaro in the 2000 dollar range? Good luck with that. 2000 dollar range you're looking at a 20 year old V6 turd with a ton of miles. Whatever power it did have (not a lot) has deteriorated over time and it now makes significantly less. Then you're paying higher insurance because you have a "sports car" that is slow as balls, can't handle, and will break frequently.

In LA you can get decent running Iroc for about 2000.
What other car is going to perform like a Camaro/ Mustang for less than $2000

When i made the comment, "correct camaro" I wasn't referring to to one with a budget constraint of 2000 dollars

As far as this thread goes the OP stated his purchase is going to be a camaro so what reasoning does any body have to come in here and tell him to buy a corolla, he ask for help to choose a model. STAY ON TOPIC
