Which car would you choose?

1996 Chevy Camaro RS Coupe with 88k miles for $3000 Manual 5-speed but will need all new tires, the ABS light is on, and the rear blinkers don't work, however the hazards all work. Ceiling is mega sagging.

or

2002 Chevy Cavalier Sport Automatic 4-speed with 104k miles for $3500 but will eventually need a catalytic converter and the rear driver side window motor is faulty. Owner also mentioned that the ABS light will pop on occasionally but goes away after a few seconds. Happens every few weeks.

Having driven both I feel more comfortable in the Cavalier but that might be because I am not used to being so low to the ground in the Camaro. Also, the Camaro is a rear wheel drive car. Something else I am not fond of.

Those are the asking prices so I will obviously offer less.

that's why I'm surprised the insurance is the same. although with the kid's accident it's probably absurdly high for anything.

That may be the best overall motor GM has ever made, when maintained they're nearly bulletproof.

A ton of people who know whats what specifically look for them, particularly in Buicks.

I figured that was obvious since I had stated I was looking for cars for my kid in the ford Explorer thread.

yeah, we don't get to see that damage until insurance renews in August. they did confirm liability will be the same no matter what though.

for the record, my son was all for the Cavalier until we drove the Camaro.

I will also have to teach him how to drive a stick with the Camaro.
