This Is My First Car And It Was A Good Choice. — I like how it was a tank of a car, yet it was still agile and quite fast. Plus the seats are very roomy and comfortable so I can fit fifteen of my closest friends in there if I had to.

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

Pros: It is a no-nonsense car and it can back it up with the speed and power it has.

Cons: It has pretty bad gas mileage considering, but it's a classic muscle car so I didn't expect less.

1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport — well, I got to say it's the best hand me down I could possibly get. it's got a 351 cleveland 2v, 9 inch rear, c6 tranny, it's the formal roof not the sport roof but i don't care. its got high bucket seats tan interior and harvest gold exterior. paint color isn't the best and it definately needs work, but as my first restore car, it couldn't be better. Right now it rides like a boat.

Pros: classic look, you know it's a classic if the taillights are on the bumper

Cons: the money that has to be put in to it to get it to the custom ride i want it to be.

The Forgotten Muscle Car — I've been wanting this car for as long as I can remember. And found it, thanks to Gary Chipman and Kijij!

Pros: 351CJ engine, exterior styling, colour, everything!!!

Cons: Can only enjoy him when it's warm and sunny, which is very seldom.

The Car Is Perfect For Anyone Looking For A Car With Good Looks And A Cheap Price Tag. — The only real negative is a lack of parts for the car. They just don't re-pop parts for 1972 Gran Torinos. the mechanics are no problem but finding trim or body pieces is a Herculean task in and of itself

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

Pros: The Car has one of the most distinctive body styles of any car coming out of the muscle muscle car era and if set up right can cruise like a Cadillac and at the same time haul ass when you sink your foot to the floor.

Cons: Plan on putting about $25 in the tank every time you drive it, no matter the distance.
Although it is style aggressively, unless you have the cobra Jet motor, the think is a boat and that's about it when it comes to performance.

Powerful — It was fun to build and drive. Made my own Cobra version with updated parts. Car accelerates quickly and handles like a dream. Updated suspension and drivetrain makes the car compatable to new sports cars. Car is very comfortable and smooth whether on freeway or country roads.

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

Pros: Rare car, one-off year. Very few out on the road.

Cons: Hard to find parts because of one-off year.
