Lake Elsinore Rat Cab — After 15 years of service I still love this car. It's been in the movie "The Big Blind" Dressed as a street rod and now dressed as a taxi. Having it dressed as a taxi has been great people do look and some comment. The fun comments come from those that think I shouldn't have done that to an old classic. What they have never heard of a wielder?

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 1972 Chevelle

Cons: ah, none

Everyone Should Build One — The Chevelle is need for speed! It can run in the low 11 second range in the quater mile traveling at 125 mph. This project was a lot of work but with the help of my daughter and my girlfriend it was very rewarding. And don't forget our dog Holley [named after the carburetor] who shakes every time she's in it!

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

Pros: Fun Fun Fun!

Cons: Snow Snow Snow!

Nice Reliable Fun Chevelle — First off the car is not an ss it is a Malibu but the only choices I had were "SS or I don't know". I just grabbed this baby the other day and will have it looking sharp in a couple of months. She runs and rides like a new 72. I drove it the other day because I had no choice and the guy at the parts store wanted to rip my head off! It was quite funny actually! I am the second owner and have all the original manuals, window sticker and everything else! Seriously this car rides nicer and smoother than my old 72 (owned in '89) ever thought of. She isn't a hot rod but the 350 does have some grunt to it but I am not in a race so I really don't care.

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

Pros: It's a 72 Chevelle! Enough said.

Cons: It has a little rust right now.

Chevelle Is Top Notch — I could and would make love to this car. THis car is the example of Perfection at Work. This is and was the greatest car ever created. It will now and always be better than any ford or mopar product. Don't ever mess with chevelle. Especially with a small block 572 at the heart of that beautiful body.

Pros: everything

Cons: impossible

I Love It — This car is a classic with a 350 small block (I know I listed it as an SS because Malibu wasn't an option). It's a restoration project of mine. Excellent styling and power, as well as luxury. An American classic for sure.

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

Pros: Horsepower and handling

Cons: None I can think of

1972 Chevelle — 1st car for $500. Only had a 302, 4-foor, green with a vinyl top that I had to keep gluing down. Ate a lot of gas. Manual drum brakes. Had lots of cancer. Tough as nails. Drove though the pothole streets of Mexico several times with ease. I loved it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Tough

Cons: Manual Brakes
