Camaros were definately a bargain performance wise in the mid 1990s.
I still have one that I bought new in \'95. It is has been my primary track car for years even though it is still street legal (kind of ;)). It has evolved though over the years. It now has a 430rwhp 396 LT4, ground control coilovers, koni adjustable shocks, alcon brakes, and a bunch of other stuff. It does very well on the road course. It even had a magazine article done on it a few years back.
