    My buddy is slowly convincing me to buy a 3rd Gen Camaro; he's got 3; two genuine IROC-Zs, and a bastard RS.
    Personally I think the G-Body Monte Carlos are pretty sweet.

    Do your homework. At that age, you could get a rot box. G bodies are pretty bad about this.

    I have two surge trailers, a few with electric and even a few small without brakes. Too much braking in the tow vehicle can be a problem. Braking into a curve for example, the tow vehicle locks up during the slight surge delay, you will jackknife. Towing with surge is a learning experience, it is not as much of hook up and go as electric brakes are. I'm guessing rentals are conservative for that reason. I know no trailer should be hook and an go without any thought but surge is just a little different, I plan ahead even more.
    I've never been in a wreck but the few times I have been in a bad situation, it was more due to weight on the rear of the vehicle than it was due to braking.
