Just check it out really good, could be a great car or a bad one. I see people list v6 cars all the time as RS, because they don't know any better, but your right, it's not an RS. Also most insurance company's list it as camaro/RS no matter which one you have.

thank you sir, youve given me much needed hope lol how much did you sell your 94 for? also with this many miles what should i be looking for or put money aside for? cost, maintence, repairs ect..


Ps- thanks to all for your help so far, anybody else?
I had mine listed for 2500 and it wasn't as nice as this one you're looking at, it had a little cosmetic damage. I ended up trading it for 1200 when I bought my SS. I would look for any sort of oil leak. Granted I had a 3.4l, the only maintainence I spent on my car was because of oil leaks (hole in my timing cover and valve cover) other than that I never had a problem.

thanks for all the info guys, i just found another camaro for sale but the guy sounds a little shady. has his machanic taking calls for him/ doesnt wanna talk or show his face

his mechanic claims the car is in "good condition" but has a couple of problems:
1) cracked windshield
2) needs a new ac compressor
3) ac clutch making noise
4) driver side mirror missing
5) upholstery around t top loose
6) has been sitting for a while ( not a good sign)

heres the add...

1998 Camaro V6 3.8 - 103.000 miles - Automatic - Body is in mint condition - Tires in great shape - Engine doesn't burn or leak any oil at all - Transmission works perfectly fine - Has chrome rims -Power windows - needs left mirror-glass - Heat works. Has a little crack on windshield which can be negotiated.


its not black like i wanted but hey

here the pics...




he wants 2k final what do u guys think?

have a bad feeling about this one

car is currently at the machaics parking lot. Im imagining a clunker

keep in mind this is a city car not like the 96 which is 2 hours away suburbs
also seems like this guy didnt take as good care of it either

Id pass on that one too esp if the headliner is loose around the ttops. Could be a sign that the ttops leak.

Keep looking... WTF is up with those seats? I also see some fitment issues with the hood- never good, and that console lid could get pricey...

Look close. When you go look at it there will be two dents where I marked the pics. Some of the other pics help show the dents. Loose head liner could be from getting cought in the rain with the t-tops off
