Mid Life Crisis Car For Guys That Dont Like Corvettes — I was looking for a Falcon but found this Comet on the internet. Flew to Chicago and drove it home. Its been a great car ever since. You don't see many Comets and even fewer convertibles. The color combination is really eye catching with the white interior. Makes you more friends than a new puppy!

Pros: Car gets comments wherever I go, The grandkids love it!

Cons: Has 1964 power steering, and drum brakes, they stop the car good, but like to wander, I suppose if I drove it more often they would stay adjusted. The steering in 1964, vague at best

'sixtyfoursixsluggercomet404 — It's an Awesome Cool ride to Roll around in. Fun to drive and work on. A challenge to parallel park. It's a major Head Turner. It's very Comfortable with lots of leg and head room. There's no A/C but the ventilation is plentiful. The dash has a beautiful vintage look and green glow. Everybody loves this car.

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

Pros: It's an Awesome ride and head turner. Lots of Trunk Space. Comfortable, attractive interior. Easy to maintain. Inexpensive parts.

Cons: No power steering. Lacks engine power. People want to stop and talk to you about it all the time (ha!).

Dry Climate And You Can't Go Wrong. — This car was the best. Countless trips to Santa Cruz, Tahoe, Monterey...not to mention concerts. I could pile 7 friends in air up the shocks(i installed rear air shocks) and head out with as much beer as we could afford.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great sound..V8 with glasspacks

Cons: didn't like to start after a good rain storm.leaky dist. cap

Average Car From The Muscle Car Era By Ivan
