Car Comparison of the RSX and Z28

I had a chance to agree some good cars , I finally narrowed it down to two cars. There are cars that would make you have chills and that would not even look real. My paper is going to be on the two cars I chose and now its hard to choose between them. One of these cars was a 2002 Acura RSX Type S and the other was a 2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. My parents had previously said that there was no way I could buy either of the two. The Acura was too expansive at $26,000.00 and the Chevrolet was too powerful at 310 horse power.

Another plus for both vehicles is that they each have a huge after market. This means there are a lot of parts, which aren’t from the maker of the vehicle, that you can buy to enhance your car. No matter which car I buy, I plan on buying performance parts for the vehicle. Your car can never be too fast. Since the Type S just came out, it doesn’t have a big market yet but the performance market is growing at a exponential rate. Also, the RSX is the replacement for the Integra, which had a very large after market. As for the Classic Camaro, it has had a big performance market since the late 1960‘s.

One of the good things about the Type S is that it comes basically loaded. Leather seats, a...
