It Is Amazing — I'm a muscle car fanatic and I love this car. I never have been a chevy fan but I make an exception for this car. It's been in the family ever since I could remember. This car holds mythical status for me. It runs quite well, not a daily driver but great for good weather days. Has a few minor hiccups here and there but what 45 year old car doesnt.

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

Pros: Every last thing

Cons: Not getting to drive it constantly

1966 Chevrolet NovaReview

I Did Not Fully Apreciate The Car When I Drove It As A Teeager — It had enough get up and go for the size that it was. It did not have power anything. I was built rather solid but not much in the way of noise reduction. The outside styling has stood the test of time with nice clean classic lines and the size is not too big or little. It's just right. The inside was not posh at all, just very basic bench seats front and back to hold quite a few of your friends. Gas(unleaded) was pretty cheep and if a hose needed replaced it would set me back $8 at any service station. It was fine to drive as long as I had my radio on. The police didn't pull me over like all my guy friends cause I was not a flashy hot rod.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheep & Easy...To repair and maintain

Cons: Little annoying this would break like side view mirror would just drop off as I was driving down the street.

66 Duce — Fast and good looking! Loved it up to the day some creep "borrowed" it. Had the 350 HP 327 with M-22 four speed, the weak part was the single leaf rear springs but a good set of traction bars took care of that. The factory shifter was junf but Hurst makes a nice replacement.

Pros: Good looking, and FAST.

Cons: Weak rear suspension, factory shifter was junk.

Has Over 500 Horses. It Goes. — Has a 502 crate engine, a roll bar and tubbed. Does the 1/4 in 11 secs.

Pros: Goes really fast.

Cons: Where's the next gas station.
