310 HP / 340 LB-FT

The fourth generation of the Chevy Camaro might be the most unloved, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t deliver some real bang for the buck. Actually, there are several iterations of this pony car that would merit inclusion on this list, but we like the LS1-engined version: That’s a great big 5.7-liter V8 for under eight grand. For that price you’ll probably be able to afford the seat covers the car will inevitably need, too.
