I have a 90' Camaro, as well as a 68' Camaro. The 1990 has been reasonably reliable, although the stock exhaust is terribly restrictive. I have since replaced the stock from headers to the dumps at rear axle, and the engine breathes a lot better now.

The brakes are adequate, but certainly nothing special. They are able to lock up the front tires, but that could be due to the skinnies I have up front.

The interior is there. That's about the best thing that can be said about it, I think. The obnoxious dash pad lip on the passenger side is an eyesore, and it seems GM thought Torx was the new cool thing, as they littered the interior with them. They even threw in a handful of fake torx head screws, to what, improve appearance, I suppose? Aside from the typical late 80's look, there is nothing essentially wrong with the interior. I suppose it just doesn't suit my taste.

The heater core on mine rusted out, and is currently bypassed, but the Air Conditioning performs admirably. Even on hot, 100+ degree days here in Texas, I'm able to keep the interior temperature comfortable.

As should be expected with such a nose-heavy car, there is horrible understeer. This was made worse of course, when the drag skinnies were installed up front. It isn't unmanageable with a decent set of sticky tires, but with normal high mileage tires, the understeer is horrible.

Suspension in both the front and rear have been replaced, and now work well for the application. Slightly stiffer front and rear springs drastically improved the handling.

After reading this review, it seems I came off as a person that hates the car, but in truth, it is probably the most fun to drive out of all the cars I've owned! It has quirks, and small issues that need to be addressed, but overall, is a great older sports car. I would definitely buy another if something happened to this one.
