Oceanside is a quaint city with six digit population planted in the northern part of San Diego County. It is home to the longest wooden pier on the west coast. The California Surf Museum is also located in downtown Oceanside if your looking to kill some time while visiting the area. If you happen to be visiting in May Oceanside Harbor Beach hosts the world’s 2nd largest Beach Soccer festival, The Southern California Beach Soccer Championships has become an international event.

Enough about adventures while in Oceanside when we have some American muscle to pedal through the city. While your not going to find an ideal city MPG at 16 miles per gallon. Funny how when driving the car it doesn’t really seem to be a concern as you dominate the local beach scenery. The clutch on the manual transmission isn’t aggressive ¬†enough that you will be annoyed in traffic putting the clutch pedal in and out.

The small narrow streets feel even smaller with the big body presence of the Camaro but we couldn’t find anywhere that the car just didn’t fit. Never did we cause a traffic jam of epic proportions or have locals throwing street vendor food at us for blocking roadways due to the wide stance of the car that make it look oh so good. In fact, most people just wanted to stop and talk to us about the car and how glad they were General Motors brought the classic car back into action.

With the interior the seats sit just a little too low making it inconvenient to rest your arm on the door sill. The gauges are laid out nicely which you can reference when cruising down the road. Seats are very comfortable and the shifter just seems to be placed in the perfect location for hours of going through the gears. Some other gauges sit just in front of the shifter with volts, transmission temp, oil temp, and oil pressure. Lastly the radio functions are fantastic including the iPod hookup which made the drive much more entertaining.
