16. Early ’90s Chevrolet Camaro
The year, 1993, marked the return of the Camaro and Z/28 model. Chevy placed it in a new body they mated with an improved and slightly modified F-Body platform. But they retained the live rear axle setup. However, the fourth-generation Camaro was a modern-looking, capable muscle car that came in two body styles, a coupe, and a convertible. The engine lineup consisted of V6 and V8 units. But in the Z/28 version, the Camaro got Chevrolet’s LT1 engine with 275 HP.
Even though it doesn’t sound like much today, for the early ’90s it was a good number. In fact, it translated to a lively performance. And they gave the Z/28 package updated brakes and a six-speed manual transmission. So, for $3,000 you probably won’t find a nice Z/28. However, you can find a decent V6 Camaro.
