Having owned a 97 Camaro myself, I can tell you they can be fun cars. Mine was running high-14' s when I traded it for my Z. There is also a fairly decent aftermarket for them, and as 90Maroon said, short of the engine, anything that could be done to V8 car can be done to a V6 (suspension, brakes, etc.). If you like Camaros, take it for a test ride, see how you like it. If you want to make it fast, it' s fairly easy to get 13' s out of it, with a blower or nitrous. There are several forums where you can find a decent amount of advice on them, if you' d like to do some more research before purchase.
