Default 97 Camaro?

I'm not completely serious about this, unless I get some really positive feedback on here... plus it'd be hard to sell my Bonne in this economy... but I saw a 97 red camaro for sale in someone'* driveway and I thought it looked fun But I don't know anything about these, are they crap cars? Looked on MSN autos and looks like they have some issues, but anyone have some firsthand experience? I'm only asking about the V8, wouldn't trade my bonne for anything else.

under 25? How much do you want to pay for insurance? Cause the Camaro with a V8 will be more than the bonneville for sure.

I'm 21.

2 door grand prix gtp = 750 every 6 months for liablity only
4 door grand prix gtp = 450 every 6 months for liablilty only
4 door bonneville ssei = $410 every 6 months for liablity only
1997 camaro V6 = 780 every 6 months for liablity only
1997 camaro v8 = 890 every 6 months for liablity only

this was about 6 months ago, my insurance company looks at the number of doors more than anything.

insurance companies vary however. But Even if you had an SSEi thats modded like Rogue, you will still pay MUCH more on insurance for a camaro, probably even a v6 version.

Hard to sell a bonnie in this economy, i can tell you its a heck of a lot easier than selling a gas guzzling suv that gets 15 mpg when your bonnie gets 30, thats the main selling point.

With a Camaro that old, it'* hit or miss on it'* condition...by the nature of the car, it asks to be driven hard. A lot. You could encounter more problems than you want.

I agree with LeSabreUltra. That was the trouble I had before I got the Bonneville, I wanted a sports coupe but I couldn't find any that hadn't just been ragged on.

good points guys, thanks for talking me to my senses... I went over and talked to the guy and it'* actually a 94 with 127K, average tires, tear in the interior, smoked in (blehhh), a few outside blemishes, for 3500. the guy said that 10-15 people have looked at it but all turned away when they figured out what the insurance was.... haha. guess I'll stick with the grandma-mobile
