Its An Amazing Car. — The car is an exceptional drag racing car, I admit I've driven it on roads illegally but only around the block. Ive driven it to work a few times and all my friends love it. Great chick magnet I should say. All the women love it especially my Girlfriend, she just doesnt ike it when I call Clementine by her name or call her Baby.

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

Pros: This car is just a badass looking machine because it looks like a deathtrap but makes plenty of power and I've seen it pull a 1/4 in 9 seconds.

Cons: It looks like a deathtrap and is one because there is almost no panels on the inside so everything is metal and sharp and pointy. Witch only is annoying when getting in and out of the car.

This Car Is So Much Fun To Drive It Is Worth The Gas Money!!!! — this car has good acceleration and braking, handling is not bad but also is not the best. It is a little old and needs some restoring but nothing a little time and money can't fix. The appearance is stunning because it is not something you see every day. little down fall is with a V8 sucks up gas but it is worth it in the long run because it is very fun to drive.

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

Pros: Looks good and rides nice!

Cons: sucks up gas!

Head Turner — It was built to go fast in a straight line but not to good in the corners. It does 10.80's in the quarter mile and go from a dead stop to 60 ft. in 1.66 seconds. Is that fast eough for ya.

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

Pros: It's fast and looks good.

Cons: Doesn't do well cornering but wasn't built for that either.

The 4dr, My First Car. — Performance, build quality, and appearance don't exist yet. I was hit head-on by a drunk in this car so it is totaled. I have so far removed the front sheet metal/bumper/etc... Also removed the motor/trans, exhaust, and disassembled most of the interior. I hope to either install a trick 307 or a turbo LSx motor soon, as well as a LOT of high-perf goodies! Super drivable car when I am done.

Pros: It has potential.

Cons: It is the living dead.

Here It Is — I have driven my car on relatively short drives,it has performed flawlessly,but I have yet to really lean on it.Some small details need to be addressed before I can really lean on it,plus I have to swap the present engine for a new,more powerfull one(548C.i./aprox 750-800H.P.,dynoed at 865 but I have a slightly smaller cam in it)I hope to have it at the track soon,but my procrastination + divergence of funds sometimes hampers completion.

Pros: awesome fun,loud,even through the mufflers(3 1/2")starts/runs flawlessly every time

Cons: Price of fuel/alternator is not charging below 3,000 rpm right now/car is unfinished
