Good Starter Car — Good looking car, with plenty of power, and great gas mileage. I hit 38MPG in it on a trip from Tenn to SC. This car made several trips back and forth from SC to Dallas, and never let me down. The interior was cheap, but the seats were very cozy.

Awsome Car Very Fun Around Towner — this was a very fun car to have/ own I dropped the top everywhere and all the time (even winter) on the warmer days when snow was melting! very fun car for cruising, with the flip open eyelid headlamps the car almost resembles a mini trans am if they mdae t/a's in front wheel drive!

1988 Sunbird Gt Convertible — This was a great car, especially for my first car in High School! It was quick off the line, but lacked overall power, it is only a four cylinder engine after all. Equipped with a sound system, there was no better way to cruise around town! :) The gas mileage was great too!
