The Best Car I've Ever Owned — Lots of room for all of your friends to sit comfortably. Plenty of power when you need it or just when you want to have fun. Reliable low mantinence, no computer. Nice stance, aggressive looking front end. Deffinatly a head turner.

Not For Sale — Rebuilt to be a GO QUALITY not a SHOW QUALITY...we have enjoyed it much these nearly 6 years...WOW! The mild 350 is easy on the gas tank pockbook while mantaining the muscle! PLUS A/C adds to the modern day immenities!

Lake Elsinore Rat Cab — After 15 years of service I still love this car. It's been in the movie "The Big Blind" Dressed as a street rod and now dressed as a taxi. Having it dressed as a taxi has been great people do look and some comment. The fun comments come from those that think I shouldn't have done that to an old classic. What they have never heard of a wielder?

Wicked — The reason i like this car so much is my dad and i did the restoration together, and that means a lot to me. A reason i dislike driving it is the only thing is cant pass is a gas station. lol.

Everyone Should Build One — The Chevelle is need for speed! It can run in the low 11 second range in the quater mile traveling at 125 mph. This project was a lot of work but with the help of my daughter and my girlfriend it was very rewarding. And don't forget our dog Holley [named after the carburetor] who shakes every time she's in it!

It's a 72 Chevelle! Enough said.

Cons

It has a little rust right now.

Nice Reliable Fun Chevelle — First off the car is not an ss it is a Malibu but the only choices I had were "SS or I don't know". I just grabbed this baby the other day and will have it looking sharp in a couple of months. She runs and rides like a new 72. I drove it the other day because I had no choice and the guy at the parts store wanted to rip my head off! It was quite funny actually! I am the second owner and have all the original manuals, window sticker and everything else! Seriously this car rides nicer and smoother than my old 72 (owned in '89) ever thought of. She isn't a hot rod but the 350 does have some grunt to it but I am not in a race so I really don't care.

Chevelle Is Top Notch — I could and would make love to this car. THis car is the example of Perfection at Work. This is and was the greatest car ever created. It will now and always be better than any ford or mopar product. Don't ever mess with chevelle. Especially with a small block 572 at the heart of that beautiful body.

I Love It — This car is a classic with a 350 small block (I know I listed it as an SS because Malibu wasn't an option). It's a restoration project of mine. Excellent styling and power, as well as luxury. An American classic for sure.

1972 Chevelle — 1st car for $500. Only had a 302, 4-foor, green with a vinyl top that I had to keep gluing down. Ate a lot of gas. Manual drum brakes. Had lots of cancer. Tough as nails. Drove though the pothole streets of Mexico several times with ease. I loved it.
