The Wrost Motor Ever Made By Chevy Lol Next To The 3.1 V 6 — this car is slow and i mean 0-60 in ten or more, breaking not good ether, bad body roll around corners, the auto trans in the car was a slush box which made it even slower then it already was to start with, pretty soft suspension

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its an old car

Cons: it has a gutless 305 with no hp, 8mph - 11 hy-way, and heavy

Great Classic With Much Potential, If You're Willing To Put In The Time. — Performance - acceleration: Not very good with the straight six in it now, but swap it for that V8 and you have a tire screacher. Braking: Average performance. Handling: Above Average performance for a car of it's size, has built in sway bars and performance shocks. Build Quality - Needs many many repairs and constant work to bring to wanted appearance and performance, but it is a classic Chevy and is solid as a rock. Appearance - nothing to really drool at as of now, needs some interior work, but with some time and a new coat of paint, it's looks will be more than menacing. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage: Poor until converted from carb to fuel injection-15/22 mpg. Maintenance: More than average, but cheap to repair and very very simple to work on. Fun Factor - Sounds deep and muscular and is a beast, light on steering suprisingly, can corner nicely, but no zip from the current engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a classic, rare, mean muscle looks, cheap parts, great potential

Cons: Bad gas mileage, constant work and repair

Standard Blue Car — My first car, standard blue fordor, auto (3 speed,) bench, It was what it was, as it were. Very cheap to maintain, just rusted out eventually. Lots of understeer, minimal handling. Indestructible blue-flame 6, but otherwise a fine example of planned obsolescence.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: cheap to run

Cons: cheap to build

Nova — The Chevy Nova Concours was kind of ugly. But it is a chevy so I like it anyways. It was a solid car with not many problems. Drove well for a big car and pretty fast too. But still a big houpty.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Chevy

Cons: Kinda ugly

Daily Driver--constant Project. — Nothing special yet. Slowly building it into a drag car. New suspension, custom interior, custom exhaust, building a 406ci (6.6 liters) v8 to drop into it. Going to be a sleeper till I am able to do a frame-up restoration.

Pros: Sound mechanical, great handling, exceptional at high speeds.

Cons: Heavy, but that comes with having a car like this.

It Was A Good Car, Nice And Big. — Good car. Actually it was called a Concours, but the same drive train and body as a Nova. Except for the rear windows and half vinyl roof. Nice car for 1000 dollars. It had a 305 small block V8 and was easy to work on.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Chevy

Cons: Old
