What's A Matador? — I like the style this car has, good lines with a semi-agressive front end and fastback look. I dont like that it was not offered with a big block V8 when new. These AMC cars had bulletproof smallblocks and good "Torque Command" T904 automatic transmissions in 1972 though which makes for a fun cruiser car.

Pros: Everything, it's an AMC!

Cons: The only thing that sucks is doing the bodywork and welding.
