Probably The Greatest Car I'll Ever Own — I love the fact that it is a very rare muscle car. It has a very powerful 350 Chevy with around 320 horsepower. It has racing seats, racing harnesses, and pretty much an overall race car. Plus it is very fun to drive. The only downside is that it gets around 14 miles to the gallon. And it is definately better than Johnny Walden's Land Rover. And he knows it.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Great Jesus, Some Classic Muscle — This car is probably my Best example of a labor of love. The car was delivered to me in a RUST heap. now, its got some great paint and a damn good engine. if you have no idea what its like to have a V8 roaring in front of you and to have the exhaust blaring behind you, this is truly an experience.

Pros: Fast, handles decent, looks great. CHICK MAGNET

Cons: upkeep, if you dont know a whole lot about classics and carbs.
