Chevy; Like A Rock — This car is gangsta! Haha just kiddin'. My second Chevy, I bought my Caprice Classic for 600 bucks and mechanically it exceeded my expectations. Exterior wise it needs a paint job, all those years of sitting outside. But, that can come last. Right now I'm fixing 'er up mechanically, just needs some good ol' TLC, oil change, tune-up, etc. It's got a strong 350 v8, I'm planning on upgrading the carb. The acceleration is not bad for an emissions-choked engine, I make the tires squeal unintentionally while making a fast turn. All in all, this car is a dinosaur refusing to die even after 200,000 miles and sitting for 4 years in the desert.

Pros: Heavy,  solid, safe, rides like a Cadillac, easy to work on

Cons: Gas mileage

The Parent's Station Wagon. — This was the car I learned on. A full on boat of a machine with the big 350cc engine that just wouldn't quit. I guess that's why they were so sought after in the late 80's.

Pros: Powerful, hauls anything, won't die.

Cons: It's huge! Got maybe 12 to the gallon. Difficult to drive in the winter.
