Not depressing at all, this V-6 Camaro. In fact, it is quite a lot of fun. I'm more impressed by this V-6 RS model with automatic transmission than I was by the V-8 SS Camaro we drove recently, as that car failed, in my estimation, to blow away the Mustang GT, as I had expected it to.
Our bright yellow Camaro RS was a hoot to drive. The six-speed automatic made the most of the V-6's 304 hp, the car got just as many stares as the SS did around Ann Arbor, and I just felt good behind the wheel. I guess the Camaro's cheap interior didn't offend me in this $30K car as much as it did in the $35K Camaro SS.
