I'm So Impressed With My Car And What It Could Do. — I liked everything about this car. The only thing negative I could say is he drank lots of gas. Acceleration was a little slow from the start but after everything kicked in it was like HOLD ON! Threw you back in your seat and hold on because this baby went like a bat out of hell! Very fun car to drive. I think any MOPAR are a joy to ride. I felt like my car was taking care of me and I was taking care of him. When I kept him clean and tuned and put higher octane gas in him he looked good, ran good, which made me look good. When he takes you up to 150 mph and brings you home safe, that's what he did for me! And I always thanked him for bringing me home safe. He was my best friend, partner, buddy, my pride and joy!

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

Pros: Nice yellow with black strobe stripes.  Sounded mean and was really fast. Was a great girl chaser. 71 Roadrunner has the meanest looking front end.

Cons: Got about 8 miles to the gallon.  Cops didn't like my car.  I think sometimes my car had a big sign on it that says "pull me over" copper.   Car was very heavy. hard getting off the line.
