Hey... It Was A Early Slow Adjusting Computer Controlled Car. — the engine rev-ed at high rpms and could stall if not warmed up properly. it was a powerless car. it was roomy and had comfortable seats. alternator failed early.. about 50kmiles. it was well cared for but it would stall alot. v-6 3.8L

Its A Cool Toy When You Feel Like Blowing Your Gas Money — its my beater beast beatrice named due to its rusty body and cracked wind shield but the fact that i dont even have a radio in it and i can set off car alarms just from driving by makes it fun to drive

Pros

great, fun project car

Cons

motor is small and lacks power,

35

1980 Grandprix — this was my first car and i still own it. i got about 9 mpg, and it had a lot of little problems. but the car was 25 years old when i got and the guy who owned before me had put it through anything and everything. the motor still runs good. the body has very little rust and just a few dings. i have the 265 v-8 in it which lacks power, but it is still really fun to drive. i would recommed this car if someone has a few hundred dollars and want a fun project car. thats what it started out to me and i ended up useing it for my one and only car for over a year. it is now back to a project car. and still runs!
