One Of My Top 3 Muscle Cars. — This car is amazing. Get ready for the looks, the stares, the shouts, the fun. It's all here. Ever wonder what it"s like to be a rockstar? Hop in this car and drive down the road. Bring a pen and get ready to sign autographs. Your a star!

Cons

this car has no interior

6500 — The engine runs but needs work. The worst part is the interior,the best part is the paint job and trim. i hope to have this car finished and ready to go for the next trod run. I got a really good deal on this car and i dont plan on sellling it anytime soon.

Better Than An Imaginary 12.1 Sec 1/4mile Boxster. — They deleted my other review and i forgot what i wrote. Amazing acceleration, brakes arent too good, turns like a boat. Horrible gas mileage (but who cares). Will burn out with just the thought of giving more than a hair of throttle. Totally cool.

Custom,Classic, Loud

Cons

Too Heavy

Classic, Sleek And Kick Ass! — Kick ass, sleek, classic lookin, gas milage sucks but its worth it cuz you see fords in the rearview mirror. Braking not great at the moment, to heavy of a car for drum bakes, convertin over to baer disc brakes soon, also goin with custom seats and door panels. Apperance is awesome, right stance, color is my own custom blend of concord metallic blue with pearl overlay and impala white racing stripes, sits on Crager SS rims with 14x7 in the front and 15x10 on the rear
