Pros

Have always loved the body style of the Skylark. Its the same kinda car I took my test in over 25 years ago.

Cons

I only hate that I dont have more time to work on it.

25

Better Than The ''typical Chevelle Of The Same Year But Sadly Doesn't Sell For Nearly As Much. — I loved driving it down the road doing burnouts in it when I had it running with the 350 engine but its gonna be twice as much fun with the 455! Has been torn apart now for about six months and I recently have had no time to go out and work on it. Somethings got to give!

Pros

Still being an automatic it'll roast the tires off.

Cons

The body is horrible.

25

With Body Work It' Be A Beauty. — The body needs comletely redone but the 350H.O. is a strong running motor pushing 300bhp and 300ft-lbs torque. The car is really big giving it a slow, 1/4 mile time but if the motor was down in a Regal that'd be a different story.

Pros

Its a beast

Cons

It takes alot of work to keep it up.

25

Badass — It has a Buick 350 in it. 2.56 open rear. It is red with a black 3/4 vinyl top. Dual exhuast. Performance camshaft. It gets around 14 miles to the gallon. The most badass car ive ever had. I has had its share of problems, but i put the motor back together and it runs great now.

Pros

Fit lots of people, and its good to just drive around

Cons

4-door

35

4-door — This overall is a good car. It does not really accelerate that well, but it is just a daily driver. Gas Mileage is pretty good, because it is a stock 350. It is a well built car, and it should last me quite a few years.

Nothing Like A 1972 Buick Gsx — 464 cubic inch Buick engine. 560 horsepower and 580 ft lbs of torque. Naturally aspirated with 950 proform carb, SPX intake, aluminum heads. Switch pitch tranny and 3:42 gears. Car was a wreck when we started, Tyler was 14. Me and Stephanie started a 57 Bel Air restoration when she was young and we never finished it. Tyler thought we would never finish this one. It was dismantled and rebuilt by us and I had several goals. 1. Wanted an 11 second street car....Done, 1/4 mile 11.70 based on 1/8th mile conversion, with street tires and through the mufflers. 2. wanted to pull front tires off the ground at take off......done 3. run on pump gas 4 highway driveable We accomplished all of these things with this car, and we race it almost every other weekend at different tracks. And Tyler ends up winning money almost every time.
