Black Beauty — One of the most beatiful cars of the 60s. A real head turner where ever you go. Some likes the style some dont. Lost of power if you want and a exellent cruise machine. Perfect for long trips because the great comfort it has

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: very nice ride head turner ans lots fo thumps up

Cons: Nothing at all

1965 Buick Riviera - Goin' Low — Love my '65 Riv. Air-Ride suspension, video in front and back, kicking stereo, great sounding with glasspacks. I thought I wanted a Porsche, but going old school has been great fun. This is my daily driver in good weather. I can't wait for spring to get it out again!

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

Pros: Great Design, fun to drive, low rider, stereo and video, great sound system, not a common classic.

Cons: None that I know of!

Batmobile — I have had this ride isnce just after high school and it was my daily driver. Highway is a dream. I can pass anyone whenever wherever. Even with the current gas prices I would drive this car every day. I just need to get it running again.

Pros: It's rare and unique

Cons: Nothing other than it not running at the moment

65 Riviera Review — Its huge is it's only downfall. It has a 401 Nailhead engine putting out about 330 horse power. It has been a long proccess of restoring it, and im not done yet but she will be a blast to drive.

Pros: Speed, build quality, little details, overall looks.

Cons: Size.

"charlie" I Gave You My Money, I Gave You My Time, Why You Wanna Hurt Me Girl. — Gap Band song "Burn Rubber" says it all You took my money, you took my time Made me think everything was fine Then you upped and ran away And made me just go crazy I never, ever had a lover Who put the pedal to the metal And burn rubber on me, Charlie Oh, no, no, no This is the third motor in this car.

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

Pros: Beautiful, unique, and styling.  Tremendous horse power and torque with 6-71 supercharger.

Cons: Riviera rear end is strong however the spider gear shaft will sheer it's roll pin under the the severe load of a blower motor. Can't get speed parts for a nailhead so have to utilize and convert speed parts.  Some parts just hard to get and expensive.
