HP is 135, torque is 160 ft.#'s.

Yes, it has "little balls" as you say, but you can't/shouldn't start off with a 500hp job.

This car probably looks good, and is functional. It generally isn't beat like a red headed step child (i.e. V8 model) and it's economical transportation. Unless it's a problematic lemon. So, you need to shop smart.

With 80K, it should have some life left. A couple V6's I had both went over 200K with regular maintenance.

I'd get it, learn how to drive, enjoy the car and take care of it. You can spruce it up as you go, just leave the mechanical end of things alone until you can afford to keep up with the joneses.

I've toyed with the idea of getting a 87 - 92 RS, but that would be a bad thing for me.
(hell, I've also toyed with getting a blown regal, but I come back to my senses or what little I have)

thanks nastyz---- theres this truck im looking at -- i offered him 3400 its a 91 1500 scottsdale 4x4 4.3 liter v6 the only prob is the gas mileage,. with the gas prices going up,. the only thing is,. the camaro's insurance price would make up for the wasted gas on the truck,. so it would pretty much even out,... i dont think he'll take 3,400 i'll wait a week,.. if he doesnt call back i'll get the camaro,.
