"I’ve had this car about 8 years. I bought it with 30,000 miles on it. I have enjoyed it immensely! It’s very fast, has gobs of torque, and handles great. On the highway in 6th, gear at 80mph, the rpm is just slightly above idle. About 1200rpm. I’m not sure if the H.P. figure is correct in the specs for this car because it feels like it has a lot more. When you go through the gears (punching it) it rockets up to 100 so fast you don’t even realize it. I have had it up to 145MPH and it still had plenty left. I think top speed for this car is 160MPH and I have no doubt that it can achieve that rather easily. Anyone I have taken for ride in this car was blown away by its performance. I have owned a 1997 Mustang GT, and while I liked that car, this one will blow it away! Totally! If you like muscle cars you will love this car. Every time I drive it someone comes up to me and says nice car. They go out of their way to tell me that. I am 50 years. The younger crowd really loves this car. Most of them have never seen one. They are pretty rare now a day. At least where I live. The car has been very reliable. I put a water pump and a new battery, in 8 years. Not bad for a 20 year old car. The only other thing I would mention is that it is loud. Even with stock exhaust. I love that, but that might be a turn off for some people. Great car for the money!!"
"This car looks great, and it can get up and go and it is fun to drive. But on a practical day to day level this car is a pain in the but. I drive a standard, which is fine, but what is not fine is that they the cup holder between the console arm rest and the stick shift. Which mean you cant have a drink in there... The other thing that bothers me is that the car is nearly impossible to get out of. The seat is so far up and the doors are so long and wide that you basically need an empty spot next to you get out of the car with a normal amount of effort... I would say, if you get this car. Realize that it is great, fun driving around car, but as an every day driver it will wear you down."
"The 10 bolt rear ends in these cars are junk hand mine rebuilt twice and it needs it again G.M.should have used a 12 bolt rear end. The front turn signal housings are junk they get hot and crack do to the heat the bulb gives off. The ls1 motor is bullet proof in my own opinion have given it many beat downs the 4l60e transmission shifts flawlessly took it to muncie drag way two weeks ago and ran in the 12.9s in the 1/4 thats with 154000 miles on it ."
"Up in age so decided I needed to experience driving a fun car once more. Glad I purchased this car. It is fun to drive and handles really good. Had dual exhausts installed and it sound really awesome.
Car has remained in good condition thanks to my love and care for it. The car was not really taken care of before I purchased it. Several people have approached me and offered to take it off of my hands. Refuse to sell my fun toy.
If you can find one, buy it. It is a beautiful car and fun to drive."
"i have had the car for a year and have not had any mechanical trouble so far. i have put it in the ditch do to hydroplaning an despite severe cosmetic damage no damage was found mechanically. car is prone to scrubbing the pavement do to low ground clearance.if buying one check t-top seals for any leaking mine had to have them replaced but all in all is a fun and reliable car to drive."
