Big, great looking, different. Don't see many.


Rust, unibody, lean burn. All easily remedied.


Dare To Be Different — The look grabbed me right away. Of course having bought one early in life really brings back a lot. Big block 2 door doesn't hurt either. I've grown tired of small and big block chevys, not that they aren't great but its funny how we end up back at our roots. Never got to drive the first one so this one starts where I left off years ago

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

Great Car By 455poncho

Great car, would buy again, styling and ride are tops, brakes and comfort are top as well. The turning radius is poor, mileage for a V6 could be better but it does have good acceleration for a large c... Read More
