About “96 camaro”

I bought on 8/10/08 payed $4500 with a 130000 miles lt1 V8 auto. It was my daily driver during spring summer and fall. Until the spring on 2010 when the oil pump went 148000 miles, pulled the motor out. Well since the motor is out its time for some upgrades. In the summer of 2011 was sick of rebuilding transmission so i did a t56 sway and was it worth it! nothings more cooler that shifting throw gears on a z28 camaro !..!

About “Supercharged SS”

Well my Kia Forte got totaled from someone who ran a stop sign and I t-boned them. I then took my insurance refund and bought this beauty. It took lots of searching and lots of testing many cars but I stumbled upon this one. I test drove it and instantly loved it. First off the appearance was what draw me to it, it is immaculate and only $10,000. Then I sat in it and the interior is as nice as the exterior. I then asked to test drive it and put the keys in the ignition and seen it had only 51,000 miles on it and I was even more impressed. After my test drive I was pretty much in love. The car handles great, has great power, great fuel economy, and is overall a nice ride. So i bought it and the only problem was it needed a new rack and pinion, which was no problem and the dealer fixed in a day. So now I've had this beauty since September.
