Its Round — I like the retro styling and the fact that with a couple of magnetic sheriff stars and a magnetic red rotor light it turns into a Broderic Crawford era police car . The seats are very uncomfortable . If you want to go fast ,just be patient you will eventually ,so far I've had him up to about 70 with no problems . But keep in mind your Smith Driving School Technices of looking ahead mostly for turns . The suspension in very soft and the ride is also ,The car leans right when turning left and viceversa [no sway bar system] .The brakes are so far sufficiant [ 4wheel drum]. Check out the music vidio on you tube featuring this car , Type in Earth Angel-Pauly Cunningham .

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

Pros: 50s body style on a 1960 platform

Cons: Handles like a big wet piece of playdoe

It's a Rambler. A cheap car when it was new. Not fast, but has lots of torque due to it's inline 6 engine. Parts are available and the engine is the same that eventually evolved into the Jeep 4.0 I6 e... Read More
