Would Have Been One Of Amc's Best. — An appallingly bad car. Put together by disaffected union workers from a bad design - ours had the gas flap upside down (had to pry it up with a screwdriver to fill the tank), a Coke can rattling around inside the driver's door, a crappy transmission, and a carburetor that appeared to have been designed for a different make of car, so that the engine would flood and stall if you cornered too sharply or too fast. The only positive thing about the car was the great straight-6 engine, but since the carburetor had to be 'detuned' to keep it running, a lot of the engine's positives disappeared. The wildest moment I had in it was when a brake line went and I lost my brakes in rush-hour traffic at 40 mph. No fatalities, but a lot of excitement. Ugly, handled poorly, and got bad gas mileage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great engine

Cons: everything except the engine.

The Best Car I Owned — This car was amazing, it was the slowest car I ever owned, but would recommend it to anyone who likes to turn heads whilst they drive. This car would eat gas like no tomorrow, but it was solid as a rock, looked amazing, and would treat you right no matter how much you beat it. Overall one of the best cars I've owned.

Pros: The look, and the rugedness it had.

Cons: ...really slow, would get beat by almost anything out there

Worst Car Ever — This was my winter beater to go along with the 300ZX. Pretty much the worst car ever made, but it only cost me $350 and it lasted me 2 or 3 winters. This car was fun to abuse and pile a bunch of people into...as long as you could forget the fact that everyone's life was in mortal danger.

Pros: Roomy interior, cheap

Cons: Death trap

As Good As It Looks And Runs, It Is A Work In Progress By redsled

Rich Corintian Leather By Daryl

What can I say... it's got the slant 6 deuce and a quarter, not the fastest around, but for 30+ yrs old, who's complaining? 13/21 mpg, no A/C (anyone got RU-13?) and it's faster downhill than up. Wit... Read More
