I honestly would never consider a V6 in a 4th gen because the LS1 is just so darn efficient... 28-30mpg on the highway and 300+rwhp on tap at a moment's notice... but that's just me.

if you figure what used to be the regular lease terms was 12,500miles per year... and multiply that by 6 (since that's how long its been since the 4th gen V6s were produced), then you get 75,000 miles... so 75k to 100k is about right for a 98-02 Camaro/Firebird... they really do last quite well if you take good care of them and if you can find a 1 owner car, then you'll be set to go with a car that was probably pretty well maintained... or, at the very least, you know the history of.
i honestly would love nothing more than to have a LS1, its my dream car (besides the 5th gen of course) but being that i am 16 and on my parents insurance a V8 coupe after having two points on your insurance from a wreck just isnt possible for me right now but i am a pretty good football player and my dad said if i get a scholarship then he'll take me to the dealership and order me a 5th gen. haha hows that for some motivation?
