Comparing an Eight Cylinder Camaro and a Six Cylinder Camaro

The purpose of this report is to compare the six-cylinder Camaro (RS), to the eight-cylinder Camaro (Z/28) to see which one is most suitable.
The specific areas I studied, based on primary and secondary sources are Performance, Gas Mileage and Price of each automobile.
The Z/28 and the R/S are simply two models of a Chevrolet sport-car based on options. The Camaro has become a legend dominating the market for more than three decades. Each model adds excitement and fun to driving along with a durable and comfortable ride. Whether the buyer is looking for the power or the style of the Camaro, they will be sure to turn heads.
Either car is a buyers deal, but one through my experiences is superior over the other. Through personal observations of each model, test driving the cars, I have concluded that the Z/28 is most suitable.
The power of the 305 horsepower V8 LT1 engine was the deciding factor which model, I believe was the better of the two models. The decision of which model whether, the Z/28 or the R/S was determined by the options the Z/28 has to offer.

Background Information

The Camaro was introduced in 1967 as the new affordable sports-car off of the Chevrolet line to compete with Chevy's rival, Ford and their own sports-car, the Mustang. Back in these days, power was the main interest of the car buying industry, therefore most were equipped with a V8, few with six-cylinders. Late in the model year, the Performance-minded Z/28 was introduced, then the Super Sport, (Z/28 with added options). Suddenly, in the early Seventies the gas prices dramatically increased. Due to this price hike the car industries started introducing more gas friendly automobiles, therefore smaller engines.
Today the economy has picked up. The people who grew up in the muscle car era still yearn to have a car that...
