Loved It — Big block V8 with dual overhead cams, kick ass muffler system even with the catalytic, rode 5 easily and comfortably, slap stick shifter, hugged the road like there was no tomorrow. Loved this white baby. She's queen of roads! Yeah

Cons

low turn control and very very long hood

It's A Rush And A Plast To Drive — this car is raw power that you feel all over your body, from the minute you turn the key to the feeling of weightlessness you feel when you're taking your car over the threshold of safety at over 270 km h. What a rush.

!979 Silver Camaro — The Camaro Has been part of my family since it was bought off the lot in 1979 by my mother! The car is pretty much all original except now we put a deck in this summer, (The A.M radio just wasn't cutting it LOL ) Hopefully by this summer we want to start the rebuilding of the car (the old lady needs a face lift, as i tell my mother) The car handles very well in the summer time when its nice and dry out, but for having such a light back end you would assume there are a lot of fish tailing in the rain.
