Grandma's Gonna Boogie Lol — first bought the car in michigan when i wasn't even looking, took it home and got a really good friend's dad to do the full exterior restoration, now it looks better than factor and has a 40 over motor with a mild cam. The car handles like a boat and only gets at it when the secondaries open but i dont care, it sounds awesome and couldn't see myself letting it go anytime soon, especially with a fresh built nailhead.

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

Pros: fantastic lines and uncatalyzed exhaust means i smile

Cons: no sway bars and drums on all 4 corners

Cool, Muscle Car, Durable & Relieable For It's Age. — This car was made to last. The car is reliable and durable. It's about fifty years old and still runs pretty reliably. (Only default as of this year is the check engine light stays on- possible wiring issue- which runs the battery out- so I unhook the battery each time I stop for a while). We replaced egnition last year....which had an issue in wiring (that's when the engine light started acting up). Windows are in need of TLC (they aren't all rolling-up- again...so motors probably need replaced). Could use TLC here and there, but it has the ORIGINAL engine and transmission...not many cars can say that....for there age and miles :) Great car just for that! Gas is only concern- wish those prices would go back down. Mine is '66 and I believe it may have 149,000 or 249,000 miles (I know "big difference" right- the odometer only reads 49,000 but oil guys said it couldn't be that low so we figured the high numbers to be safe). :)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This car is roomy (seats 6 & the trunk could fit a small elephant).  It is about 50 years old and still runs (try that with a newer car).  Original motor, trannie, everything (except tune-up, tires, oil, etc).

Cons: Gas mileage!  Ahhh!  But...seeing as newer cars need to be worked on in high-tech repair shops and this one can be fixed at home for 1/4 the price. I guess it could be considered a fair trade. Check engine lights been coming on lately (it is 50 years old) we believe it is a wiring issue, replaced drive shaft year or two ago- not to easy to find older parts.
