Due to their relatively low sales volumes, sport coupe redesign intervals generally extend well beyond the shelf life of a mainstream sedan. Which means they have to look good and perform well for a long time. And that prescription accurately describes the Chevrolet Camaro and its corporate cousin, the Pontiac Firebird. The Camaro and Firebird (known in General Motors as the F-cars) looked great when they were renewed for 1993 and still look great today. These sleek coupes and convertibles offer sporting appeal and performance ranging from really good to awesome, at prices that are surprisingly affordable. The Camaro (our subject for this report), and Firebird are about as American as it gets: long and low styling, a powerful engine mounted in front and rear-wheel drive. More practical concerns, such as room for rear-seat passengers, cargo capacity or fuel economy, are not really addressed with these cars. But for style and performance at a great price, they're hard to beat. Basically, what we have to say about the Camaro also applies to the Firebird; they are identical in engine choices, transmissions, suspension, general interior layout, overall driving feel and most options.
