Ive had a ton of them. Here's an 87 I bought the end of my senior year. Easy to work on, and most generally easy to find parts since there were so many of them.

Here's an 84 I had before the black one. I actually won "Best Car" in high school with this believe it or not. Check out the GT stickers on it. They were on it when I bought it and I never bothered to take them off. Some chick puked in the back seat and I couldnt get the smell out so I sold it 2 weeks later. I seen it a few years ago in the junkyard wrecked, full of mud and the doors and hood missing.

I would stay away from those Crossfire engines they used in Camaros and Corvettes in the early eightys. I think that motor was from 82-84. Big time dog of an engine. I forget how much HP from the TPI. Mine was only a 305 but ran like a raped ape.
