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!

Pros

B A musclecar     Raw power !  Big  American V8 ..........

Cons

Nothing. Ok one . I wish I still had it !

25

Classic American Musclecar At The Height Of The Cubic Inch Wars ! — Raw 454 Ci V8 power ! Over 450 Hp and 480 Ft lbs. of torque. Big car rides nice handles Ok . Braking not too bad considering the weight (3500 lbs.).Build quality very solid (they just don't make them like that any more).Appearance stunning ! Especially at sunset.The red paint with the wide black racing stripes. Cost of ownership not bad considering I purchased the car when it was 7 yrs old.Fuel mileage when I got done with my mods was between 15-18 mpg.Fun ! nothing but fun.When you can press the accelerator to the floor and have tires smoking till you either let off or are traveling at over 90 mph. Wow ...

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.
