You can add the Recaros which are very comfortable. I have sat in one for 10 hours a day in the ZL1 driving to FL. And they were very comfortable. $1,500. I wonder if you get the same fabric as the SS/1LE?

And this is still a good track car just as the SS is. Just don't stay out there too long and get yourself some better tires.

And lets not forget this is the fastest N/A V8 Camaro. I can't wait to see somone prove it.

I just rented an almost new Challenger R/T. It was very nice to drive and I appreciated the room. But man does it feel big and heavy, but a nice tight turning circle for such a big car. The Dodge really fells more like a much improved old time muscle car. The Mustang has both muscle and a modern feel. The Camaro feels like you dropped a small block chevy in a sports car. Maybe its in the restomod category. Or maybe I watch too much Mecum.

Cool find! Thanks 95 imp.



However, the LT1 is not a SOHC it is just OHV.

Ya- he choked that one. Also, toward the end he was saying SS instead of LT1.

I bet we will see a full base GT v LT1/LT1 some day and here is the result:

The LT1 is the superior performance car and the GT is a better car.

Agreed. If I was looking at buying an LT1 or a base GT the LT1 would get really really really strong considerations from me.

I love the fact it has 20" wheels standard, and I think it's the best looking of the non Z camaros.

BUT the extra room of the GT and better daily driver aspects would probably win they day for me.

I’d go with a Kia Stinger GT2 if I were to compromise performance for utility.

Yeah. I think you're right.

Nice cars tho. The Stinger would be a nice compromise between performance and utility if you only have one car. My Camaro is my personal commuter car so utility isn't my main concern.
