A Great 1st Project Car — My care ist still a work in process. I plan to try to finish it up this summer. I'll paint it orange w/ 2 white racing strips and put on some extra modifications. My engine is running lean right now and I need to figure out what is going on with the fuel injection system. When I'm done It should be a pretty sweet car.

Pros: Classic Look

Cons: Rust, Old

Freakin Awesome. — awesome. It runs nice, despite ALOT of miles. thirtythree years old, about to be painted a legit orange. brakes squeak a little, but thats about it. Fun to drive, and just about as reliable as any other car, despite its age.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: it rocks.  fast, sleek, classic, pretty.

Cons: mileage...

A Versitile Little Car With A Mean Kick — I love the straight 6 that sits under the hood. Its torquey but handles extremely well. It handles beautifully and can be modified. It won the rally competitions when it first came out and paved a road for alot of the new cars of today such as the 350z for starters.

Pros: Powerful, stylish, economical, and longlasting

Cons: Straight 6 under the hood is awkward to transition to in both the way it handles torque and maintenance
