Love It! — When we had the Olds it was my favorite car, it actually still is. It could pull anything and it was solid as a rock. I felt so safe in that car and it was a great ride, super comfy! I miss it every day!

Super Nice Cruiser, With Chrome And Leather Everywhere — Its a real cruiser. The back seat is like most peoples sofa's. Its all original, except, the headliner had to be replaced, as it was sagging like it does in most of these cars, and an after maket stereo, with sirius, that fit right in the dash, so no cutting.

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

It Is A Pleasure To Own And Drive And Show! — One of the greatest Cars I Have EVER OWNED! Looks, Comfort, Build Quality. She gets tons of looks, stares and thumbs ups no matter if I'm driving or if she's sitting in the driveway. SHE IS AN ABSOLUTE DREAM CAR!

Cons

Literally a boat

My Ghetto Car For When Im At School — Was my great uncles, he gave it to me when I turned 16 and it inly had 46000 miles. Been driving it around school and its been great, you can fit 10 people in the damn boat and it being a diesel it gets 30 miles per gallon. Performance is pitiful, it barely passes a city bus under wot, but thats not what it was meant for. Its just a big, comfy, economical cruiser. Injection pump went out so I just experienced my first issue.
