Take Pride In Your Work — It is hard to find parts for this car and since this is my first complete restoration I come to find out exactly how much these restored cars cost. Just taking the frame off is a lot of money alone....

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

Pros: All new everything has all metal except main body has been powdercoated including frame

Cons: Not finished

Hot Damn! — This car was amazing. I drove in my first two years in College. I was literally a Rocket. Even 10 years old, it was hard not to lay down rubber every time you left a traffic light. And when you took it up to 90 or higher ... the aerodynamics actually pushed it down lower to the road. As I said - Amazing!

Pros: overwhelming

Cons: easy to get tickets

The 442 Was A Car That Could Not Be Touched By Any Other Major Car Manufaturer! — With a 455 Cubic Inch Engine, Duel Snorkal Ram Air Filter System, 3:63 Rear End, Stock Rear Traction Bar, 400 Turbo Transmission, Floor Shifter & Bucket Seats!.... This car was not ONLY a beautiful car, but also a "White Nuckle Ride"!!

Pros: Fastest factory made car of it's size!.... EVER!!

Cons: NONE
