Wished They Still Made Something Like It. — This car Started life with a 4 cylinder, It Now has 327 CID/350 HP with a Power Glide 2sp Automatic Trans and a ford 9" 4.10 ring and pinion. This car was a basket case but with a little cash and hard work, it turned into a great racer, it use to be the one to beat if you wanted a race with John Reasoner's 383 Stroker Camaro ..... One of these Days John I will get you back !!!

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

Pros: It was fun to drive

Cons: Stopped Producing this car.

Great Driving Little Car — Great driving car, that still looks great today. With a small block conversion they become very fun to drive.

Pros: practically drives itself, more power than is nessicary

Cons: Terrible gas millage.
