I Own Three Mavericks And This One Comet. — Minimal repair costs-fuel filter, starter, plugs and wires since ownership Appearance-not like all the old school mustangs and camaros, very unique Cost of Ownership-great gas mileage still gets 26 mpg Fun Factor-its got drum brakes to that takes all the fun out of it

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

Pros: The body lines

Cons: lack of repop parts

My Camavi — anyone who has known me for more than ten years knows that this car is MY BABY, I know that I am not supposed to LOVE something that is made of metal but I do and I can admit it. We have been through so much together. This car is MY DRUG in life - to hear that motor purr and feel the power - I hope to be cruising again SOON!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: my hot rod has PERSONALITY

Cons: 38 year old car that needs restoration after being a daily driver for over 30 YEARS!!!!!

Awesome — Total sleeper, I love spanking everything that comes my way. She sounds great breathing through open headers that dump underneath the front seats. As far as what's in her... It's just a 302 ;) I bought this sucker for 400 bucks and have since put a couple hundred into her, rebuilding the trans. as well as a couple of nice bolt-ons and other goodies.

Pros: The shock factor for the guy in the next lane.

Cons: None

Dependable, Curvy, And Fun — This car has four on the floor, a huge block v8, and is about as original as they come. It's even got the factory radio in it. :-) It gets me where I need to go, and starts up every time, all the time. Just is a bit persnickety about shifting.

Pros: She's reliable, easy to handle, and she's got a lot of power, and room.

Cons: She's picky about how you shift her, and she doesn't have power steering.

Average Car From The Muscle Car Era By Ivan

This is on of those lucky cars built just before the end of the muscle cars. 302ci V8 power plant does exactly what you'd think: guzzles gas and pushes you back in your seat. Looks nice too. Not as ni... Read More
