    Nice Car To Start With. — This was my first car, was a type LT with a 350 and automatic transmission. It was very dependable and had no major problems until the mileage got to about 120,000 at that point the engine started to drink as much oil as it did gas. That was typical for the engines of that day, they weren't made to last much over 100,000 miles. Brakes were not the best as the rotors would warp very easily if you lived anywhere that required you to drive through puddles of water. Was not the quickest car because of the gearing but was amazed that you could go from zero to 60 in first gear. At speeds over 100mph you could feel the front of the car starting to float a bit and because it was still a heavy car the brakes were really not up to the task of stopping a car that was moving that fast if you needed to stop form a high speed you would be greeted by the smell of overheated brake pads. In snow it was horrible, the rear was too light for the power and you were better off leaving it in the driveway. A couple of things that would make it happier was to remove the smog crap it was from the time when they put a pump on that would rob power to inject air into the exhaust to try and control pollution, was a hp thief but was also easy to remove. It was also one of the few cars I ever had that required you to have the seat belts buckled in order to start the car, that system was easily removed as the black box control was under the front drivers seat and when removed the car no longer required seat belts to be buckled. Major things to look for if you are looking for one is the front valance under the front bumper they are fiberglass and because people don't know how low the front of the car is to the ground are often broken when people park the cars and run them over the curb. Also be wary of rust around the wheel wells. Doors are also very heavy and can easily be sprung out of alignment if the person uses the door to get out of the car. Also the radiator has the transmission cooler running inside it so if it is prone to having a leak in the transmission that will then shoot fluid into the cooling system causing the coolant to become an oil muck that will overheat the engine. If in doubt of the age of the radiator replace it before it acts up on its own.

    Pros: Very durable motor and transmission
    Very easy to work on yourself

    Cons: Brakes were prone to disc warping
    tend to acquire rust around the wheel wells
    no back seat room

    Not Well Thought Out. Poor Fit And Finish. — Car had too much power for its tires, brakes, and handling. Could have been a good dragster,went fast in a straight line but couldn't turn or stop well. Was afraid to put it in my garage because it always smelled of raw gas when you were near it, never could find the reason. Was my first company car almost got me in trouble when the president's Lincoln was in for service and he bowed it, he stomped on it like he did with his car and peeled out through an intersection, got him a warning ticket.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Brakes and handling

    Work-in-progress — im in the midst of rebuilding it just dropped a 350 4-bolt main motor in it. and did away with the points iginition.... need a new 4-bbl and intake for it tho. the little 2-bbl on it is a good gas saver but a punk when it comes to power, also needs different gears

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: everything style-wise

    Cons: the costs of everything

    Uh Ok — I like the fact that you can go balls out when you drive a car I do this too often when I drive it so it's continually being worked on by me but I like it quit a bit and I hope the 350 I rebuilt will do nicely

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

    Pros: the sound system

    Cons: the engine in it right now

    Chatarro - An 1970 Rs Camaro Tribute. — Almost 10 Years working on this car...(some years more works than others). Almost finished it's transformation to 197'0 RS Looks :D Interior is very simple, will have a full rollcage soon. Dash with Autometer Gauges already built and two racing front seats with. Exterior is under transformation, new color will be titaniun gray with black inserts and of course, front and rear 1970 Rally Sport looks. This car is VERY fun to drive, you can search "chatarro" on youtube and see what I mean.

    Pros: Best thing is that this car is mine!

    Cons: Not ready to hit the streets again!

    My Brothers Race Car — takes off great, keeps you planted in the seat, doesn't turn to well cause the locker ford 9 inch, and stops on a dime.

    Pros: everything.... passes tech

    Cons: not street leagle, and turning kinda sucks
