People Give Postive Comments About It — Love it allot... thought the color is not my favorite. Performance is not the best though it's not the worst. Cost of ownership is not a whole lot. This car is a blast to drive. It might have a small block v8 305 but it is got get up and go!!!!

Awesome! — It's got a tuned 350 engine wich delivers about 350hp. TH350 automatic transmission. 9" Ford in the back. Has done 13.69 @ 100mph on the drag strip. Is in fairly good body condition and I'm working on removing all the rust.

I Miss This Car — For those of you who remember high school I used to cruise in the 'bu. Loved the car. It had a personality of it's own. Crazy thing is after being in my family for 19 years I can't seem to find any pictures of it. If anyone out there has a pic of my camel brown pimp mobile, please pass it on.
