    Wish I Hadn't Had To Sell It! It Was Awesome! — Loved this California car! The 428 & RAIV cam w/TH400 made it very quick @ LACR. I placed 12th out of 60 guys with this car in the Pontiac Drag Series in 1992. Pretty good for a woman! Gas mileage was non-existant. Had to sell it in 1998 in Indiana.

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

    Pros: The WOW factor!

    Cons: I would beat you!

    It Is One Sexy Car! — Everything about this car was absolutely amazing! From the color, to the engine to the suspension to the driver, I loved this car! Built from the frame up, this car ended up being the most reliable, funnest, hottest, sexiest car I've ever owned!

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

    Pros: It's fun, and looks great!

    Cons: 455 engine IS a gas guzzler

    My Real Gto — I love my gto. My dad kept the car for 22 years and we built it together when i was in high school and then gave it to me for my grad present, unknowingly. It has a lot of sentimental value to me and there is no price i would sell it for because of that. Love driving it in the summer, love the way it looks, and i don't know of another one like mine, or my year around my hometown.

    Pros: It's a true american muscle car

    Cons: Not totally Completed

    A True Muscle Car — Another of my Uncle Jeff's resto projects that has long since been sold. He bought it not running and nursed it back to health. It was a 1971 convertible copper with a copper interior, and it had factory A/C, a massive 455 big block V8, and an automatic transmission. Literally right after he connected the last wire once evening in 1994, Uncle Jeff and my dad took me and my cousins out for ice cream at King Cone. Sadly, the engine developed a knock and my uncle decided to sell it to finance the restoration of another 1971 GTO convertible he had lying around.

    Pros: Insane horsepower and torque, air conditioning, convertible, beautiful color combo.

    Cons: It's been sold.

    Muscle Car With Looks And Grrrr — This car is rare and looks great. It is set up for driving, not dragging. The power is equal or better than the new cars with better sounds and looks. I liked the cutouts and the 12 bolts rear. Built to handle the torque.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Power and torque

    Cons: Loud
