Good Old Kingswood. — This is my baby, all original, untouched, just clocked up 100,000km's. While she's not a race car, it's one hell of a weekend cruiser, if your happy to listen to the engine instead of the AM radio. Performance isn't up there with newer cars, she doesn't stop and accelerate that great, and wallows in the corners, but I don't mind. There's just something about a car that has a visible bonnet from the driver's seat, something few new cars have.

Pros: Rock solid, cool cruiser, clean and simple.

Cons: Can't keep up with modern cars.

My Baby My Life Never Getting Rid Of It — 140rwk out of the 202 4spd man so she goes alright for a heavy car, has the girlock disks on the front so stops better than any car i have driven, all round ex racing suspension so it just sticks to the road but the 10 bolt lsd doesnt really help. fuel econamy is crap 200ks to a tank thank you SU carbies, interior is rough as need to fix that but too many projects. This car is the most fun thing i have ever been in fast skids and handles fantastic, this is my baby i have owned since i was 14 an it will stay with me till i die my hq is my pride and joy

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

Pros: awesome fun

Cons: fuel costs way too much to drive all the time
