I Love My Mallinium Falcon,she's The Fastest Hunk Of Junk In 3 Galaxies — It's a project,recently aquired.It's my big metal garden nomb. It will have a 302 stroker in the form of a 327,using a 283 crank' and pink arms. It's a work in progress,and it's mine I have a set of rally rims for it for now,but will upgrade to Cragars,or Welds later. I plan to paint her midnight black,with orange and gold metal flake. The interior is light grey,and will remain such. As for sound I plan to go old school stock with a few additions,like better speakers and a functional 8 track. What you don't have one.LOL.

Pros: It's going to have neck twisting horse power,why else?

Cons: Lots of body work.

I Love It. The Car Is Great. — This car has about 37,000 original miles on it. It came from Texas. Everything is original except the sound system, seat upholstery, carpet, battery and tires. It is an old man's car. It has a 230 CID 6 cylinder engine with a manual "3 on the tree" shifter. It's a 4 door and it still has the original paint which I want to re-do. It has some original dents and dings but it's a lot of fun to drive.

Pros: The room inside, the gas mileage, the ride is smooth, pretty much everything.

Cons: I can't think of any.

I Smile Every Time I Drive It. — My Chevelle (currently not pictured) is a rags-to-riches story in car form. Bought by my uncle for its rear-end in 1980, it was then bought by my dad, who put a new rear-end, engine and transmission in it. He drove it until 1988, when the reverse gear went and he stopped caring, and it deteriorated in a yard and a driveway until 2002, when he and I (mostly) restored it. It's not stock by any means, as it has a drag suspension on it, since it was a drag car in the sixties and seventies. Since it only went a quarter-mile at a time, it only has ~6,000 miles on it. I don't live where the car is stored, so I only get the chance to drive it a handful of times a year, but I love it.

Pros: Bitchin' engine, unique, loud, hard to drive for anyone but me, looks great considering what it's been through.

Cons: Not finished, five-and-a-half years after the fact, plenty of non-working features, no weatherstripping, I can't drive it as much as I want, 8.3 miles-per- gallon.
