Awsome Car To Own — this car is for a car crazy person you spend lots of money on it to enjoy it not to sell it. the car has plenty of power and will pass any tuner/ricer on the street. Handling will be its next upgrade.

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

Pros: I like the body lines and the history.

Cons: this cars just eats money out of my check.

66 Ss 396 — i love my 66 gets tons of head nods of approval..hard to cruise because people stop me every where i go...i love it. I have a few more things to fix on it but a nice daily cruiser, and the 4 speed is an absolute blast to drive. For a 66 it handles ok wish it had air ride technology suspension under it thou.

Pros: True american muscle

Cons: poor cornering but wasnt made to do that anyway..lol

One Of A Kind Muscle Car From The 60's — My father and I bought the car in September of 2007 as a restoration project. We started work winter of '07 and still haven't finished and its summer 2008 now... When we are done it will be a one of a kind chevelle and the only '66 in Oceanside:)

Pros: Fast as hell, probably one of the top 10 in oceanside? Deadly good looks, you cant beat the classics. Enough room to sleep in, or do what ever you want in ;)

Cons: Gas guzzler

Beautiful '66 Chevelle — This 1966 Chevelle has been in my family for 17 years. I helped build since I was 6 months old. It has nos and isnt street legal anymore. It also has drag wheels and is part of the NHRA. It does 10 seconds on the 1/4 mile and has a small block engine.

Pros: Nice and fast

Cons: Kinda getting a bit of rust and the chromes coming off

This Is My Baby! — Just so it's known, this isn't my actual car because I don't have a picture of it. This is the closest example I could find. As soon as i find a picture i will put it up instead. This is my favorite car of all time. I love the looks and color of my car. It was originally my dad's and he had it for 20 years before me. They are just a great example of the classis '60's American Muscle Car. It has a 396 V8 engine which needless to say hauls ass.

Pros: Style and 396 V8 engine.

Cons: Drum brakes which I intend to convert to discs.

True Muscle Car. Built On A Budget. — All balls and no brains. Minor corrotion on outter chrome. Good Paint. Bucket seats in front, full in back. Original dash has a crack or two. Not matching numbers... motor is from a 66 wagon. 402 bored .005.... a bit over 400 hp. Disk in front, drum in the back. Airbag suspension in the back. Balls to the walls. Not for the weak of heart.

Pros: Scary fast!

Cons: Needs interior work and mybe a suspension upgrade.

Very Fun, Very Powerful, Very Loud — 1966 Malibu Chevelle Big Block 396: Comp Cams performance camshaft, Holley carb, built for drag racing, powerglide 3-speed, Flowmaster Super 40 exhaust with Hooker headers (translation: very loud), Mickey thompson ET Street Slicks, Weld Racing Pro Star rims, 12-bolt rear end, line-lock. Runs 11 seconds in the 1/4 mile. Very fun to drive, has always smoked any other street car. Never seen a car that can do better burnouts than this one, in second gear you can blow the tires off for 2000 feet. It is a drag car, not a show car. No rust, no rot, but it is a drag rat. The car is owned with the purpose of being driven and having fun.

Pros: All around solid and very fun

Cons: The police know us well and really dont like us
