Great Muscle Car, Going To Rebuild The Engine To Hook It Up More Though. All Motor — Everything. Its has a new 350 crate motor. the paint is midnight blue with ghost flames. The interior is all new has lether seats, cd player, racing steering wheel. the paint on the tailgate needs some work but over all theres nothin wrong with the car. Got it at a steal too.

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

Pros: Fast

Cons: nothin

Stick To Your Matchbox Rice Rocket!!! This Is For The Real Men!!!!! — My "Blue Angel" (previously known as "Kristin Truek"): BEST Performance with acceleration (lunges from the startlne), branking (screeches with no anti-lock brakes) & handles loosely but firmly; Quality is top-rated though it is 30 yrs old so it did/does require part replacements; aerodynamic, sleek & sexy Appearance; Cost of Ownership moderate-to-high due to gas-guzzling carborater & old parts; Fun Factor: the GREATEST EXPERIENCE OF YOUR ENTIRE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: POWER, BEAUTY, GRACE, PERFORMANCE, SPEED!!!!!

Cons: WILL crush your car easily; gas-guzzler to the MAX!

Best Car Ever Owned — In 31 years, this car has only let me down once, when the transmission finally let go at 157k. Still runs strong and I get thumbs up from others out on the road. Younger people think it's pretty cool. Currently looking for another one.

Pros: Everything

Cons: With a black interior, A/C would be nice in the Midwestern summers.

1971 El Camino — Its in the middle of construction right now so it dosent look to good. Its performance is pretty good it has a 454 with 450 hp. The car isn't really a good looking car but its Chevelle counterpart (the one im saving up to get) is better looking and usually faster than the El Camino.

Pros: Performance, all disk brakes, lots of room

Cons: Only seats 2, its not done...

So Close To Owning, But Had Problems From The Engine Swap. — I found this at a dealership, and they only wanted $5000 for it. I couldn't figure out why. It was in real good condition for a car that old, and the 454 engine that had been put in it only had around 60k on it. But when I test drove it, I found that the power steering was shot and the when the gas pedal was pressed, the RPM would go up, but the car wouldn't actually move until around 4000 RPM, when the tires would squeal like banshees and smoke themselves to pieces.

Pros: Ultra cool, fast, classic Chevy.

Cons: Power steering and engine issues.

Love This Car, It Was A Father Son Project That I Did With My Dad 17 Years Ago. — A/C car with buckets and console. Great cruiser in the city, fun from light to light. Bit to loud for steady highway travel, love the feel of the positive shifting modified trasmission. My son will eventually own this car.

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

Pros: It's a 1971 El Camino

Cons: Currently under powered, handles like a 1971 El Camino.
