Camaro is a dream car for everyone in that particular generation - pure muscle.
BUT the 1980s Camaros aren't what they are now or even in the 1990s - they make more noise than have power.
Again they always are high maintenance. Most Chevrolet ones are.
Your dad may be thinking of a Camaro cause
1. You'll get used to driving without having to look at the road just ahead of your fender (those were pretty low seated and higher bonnets
2. They guzzle fuel so you'll learn to use cars sparingly
3. Even if expensive since the one you will have is a 1980s one will still prove being cheaper to put back into shape
But however, again best ask him why :)1
