Spirit Of 76' — It was a Chevy, it's a 76' - there aren't many of them out there, most got used for demolition derbys because they have a solid frame. It was worth restoring - now that I own one I am finding that others are restoring them as well.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This car rides like a dream, easy on gas for a big car, handles well, starts all the time and runs well, big trunk, fun to cruise around with.  You don't see many of them at car shows.

Cons: Hard to find parts - like chrome wheel moldings, etc  No leg room in the back seat.

Great Classic Car — The car is 35 years old, but still runs fine. After I fixed the brakes(master cylinder/bled) they are fine. Handling is good for the giant boat. Acceleration is not extreamly good(305), but would be better with the 350/400. As you would expect it has needed repairs, just for being old. It only has squeaked once, after it sat for a couple months and tried to get it to up a hill. I love the exterior, and the tan (leather?) interior is kind of bland.. It does not have good gas mileage, but at this point who cares?

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

Pros: Classic, Smooth Drive,

Cons: Bad Gas Mileage, Old,

This Makes Me Realize How Much Performance We've Lost During The Past Years. — Have only had the car one week. So far, with the 350, it likes gas stations (alot). Drives and rides so smoothly it's a dream.

Owner for 0 years, 1 months

Miles Driven per Year:15,000

Pros: Power and ride

Cons: Gas mileage
