    reliable enough to use as a daily driver?

    what, if any are the common reliability mods?

    what are the normal problems that come up?

    other than that why do they suck?

    do people replace the ignition system with an aftermarket one?

    i like the looks of a 97 over a 98 and i don't want to spend 4k more. :(

    are they really that bad?

    wrong, the opti is not the greatest thing ever, but i've seen plenty go over 150,000 miles with no problems

    i think an lt1 would be enough power for me. :hs:

    so they just replace it over and over when it breaks?

    i'm honestly not planning to mod the car at all.

    i really can't afford to. i just want a DD that's decent to drive.

    still a bad idea?

    daily-driveable = reliable

    gas mileage doesn't matter to me.

    so nothing fun and reliable for 6k? :hs:

    how are lt1 camaros unreliable other than the optispark?

    I have a High Milage LT1. I picked it up cheap. It's not a race car by any means, but I would be comfortable driving daily if I had to. It has a 136K. Runs great. It still has the Original opti. I probably should change it soon. :o

    I think going from a mini van to an LT1 Camaro would be fun for you.

    i may do it anyway.

    i've been seeing some good deals.

    50k miles for 6k isn't bad imo.
