Awesomeness — it has decent gas milage of 12-15 mpg, nice rumble to it, loud fast and smooth, awesome acceleration. I plan to rebuild the engine soon. I would recommend this car to people who are looking for a small fast car.

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

Pros: I like the smooth design with the Competition orange and jet black stripe
It has a V8 302 engine with flowmaster dual exhaust

Cons: hard on gas and hard to find parts for

Average Car From The Muscle Car Era — This is on of those lucky cars built just before the end of the muscle cars. 302ci V8 power plant does exactly what you'd think: guzzles gas and pushes you back in your seat. Looks nice too. Not as nice as other classic cars, but it's hard to not love any classic. Safety is clearly lacking, but with today's cars, the other car provides crumple zone for you, while this stays intact.

Pros: Lots of power, steel bumpers could rip through modern cars, Cat is only enviro feature

Cons: Gas millage, Handling (all drum brakes), lap seat belts
