    Nice!! — Wish it was a manual transmission and had air conditioning. We are going to add vintage air to it in the next couple of months. These cars usually only get driven in the hot summer months. So can't wait for the summer. This is the first summer for this car.

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

    Pros: 455 auto, no rust

    Cons: nothing yet

    Pontiac Pure Muscle — My first car I bought out of high school in 1986. Absolutely a blast to drive. And talk about fast! Its a beast! Don't mind turning on the radio. You couldn't hear it anyway! My baby has seen her better days. Future plans include a total restoration and time spent doing it with my son. Nothing would make me any happier!

    Pros: Fast, fast, fast. A real head turner.

    Cons: Deff sucks GAS! about 4 mpg!

    1970 Gto — Has a built Chevy 454 stroked to 468. Put down a modest 550hp N/A. Typical ETA low 9s. Wish it was still street legal, though. Great track car. It Looks amazing and embodies the entire American muscle time period.

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

    Pros: Raw speed

    Cons: Not street legal

    Sweeettt — Mine is actually a red convertable. Again, i have never driven it. We are currently in need of a new exhaust, which presently has a hole in it and can be heard from a mile away. The trim could use an update and it needs new paint but it still looks friggin awsome.

    Pros: Speedy, attractive

    Cons: loud

    A Classic — Have owned this convertible since Oct 2006.... brought it over from Nebraska.. with 71k original miles (I think).. Its 4-speed, A/C, convertible (rare combo), and all original numbers matching. I don't think the engine has ever been apart.

    Pros: Classic

    Cons: Nothing

    Classic American Power — Everything....Fast, classic and loud. I love this car because it is a piece of history and everybody wants to look at it. The car is very fast and loud and I just love driving it. The body is in perfect condition and almost everything has been rebuilt. The engine is brand new and has been completely done up.

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

    Pros: fast, looks amazing, piece of American muscle car history, value only rises on this vehicle

    Cons: can't think of any

    An Awesome Car That I Dont Ever Want To Give Up — Performance: Great get up and go off the line. Has a large engine that can really give a good kick early and will go the long haul. Handles like a dream on most days. Great for riding curves or running fast and straight. Build: For being 40 years old she has held up well. She needs more repairs on the body and the engine. But the engine is not originial anyways. Appearance: The interior is mainly original. The seats have been replaced with cloth covering versus the original leather like material. The exterior needs a paint job but still looks good enough for a few years before absolutely needing it. Cost: Gas is ate up to the point where it is a great cost. Maintenance right now costs a lot, but gas is the biggest. Fun Factor: A classic car is always fun to drive. This is no different.

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

    Pros: Fast, cool, good looking

    Cons: Maintenance and up keep

    stock 455 4 speed, demon carb, stock exhaust manifolds, duals w/ flow masters. the 4 speed makes it so much more car than automatics.
    Power Ranked 1970 Dodge Challenger worse.
    "stock to stock the 455 ram air 4 produced a much more brutal launch and had power every gear"
    Would Buy Ranked 1970 Dodge Challenger worse.
    "well I had them both and the general motors car was just more solid, in my opinion"
