    Wild Wild Horses — well what can i say, lots of power, good handling, braking ok. New ball joints & tie rod ends were replace. 250000 miles on her than i blow up the engine. i had a hard time finding a 455ho. So I had to put a 400(american) to fit with the tranny. Blew that up in a flash. I finally switch to a 350 small block chevrolet, i had to take my beautifull turbo400 transmission out so i could fit the 350. Anyway that was one of the most amazing car i ever owned.

    Pros: power

    Cons: unibody

    Its Amazing — scratches in it shows the character that the car has. it will be incredibly fast once we get a real rear end in it and the real motor in it. it is built great it has 4 wheels and moves and will beat your rice burner

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

    Pros: the amazing 9 milles per gallon

    Cons: none
