A Fun Car To Own And Enjoy, This Car Was Made To Cruise And To Take For A Night On The Town ! — Big and Sporty luxury car. Power to spare, a big lumbering beast of a car with a great sounding exhaust and plush interior, you were the king when picking up your date in this classic, wish I had one now !

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Classic 70s Class — I love my car.. strong 351w motor.. metal body.. leather seats.. great cruiser with alotta power.. repairs and upkeep are a must though. rough on gas as well. i spend about $100 dollars filling this 26 gallon monster. gets about 12 mpg. heavy car but fun and very comfortable if you can afford it.

Pros

Classic car, nice interior, smokin hot engine with some tune up work

Cons

HEAVY!!!

Elite — While it may look like a grandma car, it came stock with a 460 big block v8. Enough to turn heads from a mile away making people ask what that beastly sound is. Heavy as it may have been, drop some .373's in the rear end and you get a real haul asser!

Its A Boat — lets see if we can float it! Its got 78,000 miles most likely original, one owner and then me. clear title and 100 bucks later and she was mine. It runs but I hauled it home anyways. Lost of small issues but it is in need of a loving home.

This Was A Great Family Car Back In The Day. — I really liked the looks of this car when I got it. It was great for long drives, comfortable. Very dependable and reliable, but not very economical. This car was not built for racing, but my other twin had lots of power because it had been beefed up with suspension and motor work. This car cost me very little, just small regular maintenance bills for small things, like oil changes, filters, brakes, fluids, which I did myself. Brakes worked great never worried about stopping. Handled ok on hwy, but this was not an in town rat racer. I enjoyed it when I drove it, but to just have it sitting there taking up space, I didn't want it anymore.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Best Car Ever! — well it is fairly old now, my uncle gave it to me and it is a pretty reliable car. I did however have to replace a couple parts out of age. Just recently ticked it over 80k miles, which is pretty damn good for being 33 years old. It is like riding on a cloud, people always compliment how comfortable it is when they ride with me. It pretty much is a tank, a deer hit the car when i was driving at 55 mp/h. nothing happened to the engine compartment. The gas is an issue, takes like 8 miles to the gallon, which is kind of crappy in this day and age. But overall, awesome car, glad i have it.
