The Banana Boat — *Please note that the photo pictured is not actual car, though it is the same color* What can I say? It was a luxo-barge. It rode smooth and handle fairly well, (on dry pavement that it is), had plenty of get up and go thanks to its 400CI V8 engine producing a somewhat lame 176HP and a rocking 326 lb ft of torque. Despite hitting a deer, (and later a road sign) it was in good shape. It's trunk was big enough to comfortably hold two people or five full size tyres. Unfortunately, it had two to many doors, horrid fuel mileage, an ugly creamy yellow color, and an engine that couldn't hold up to losing it's water pump...

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

Pros: Big block power, luxurios ride, huge trunk

Cons: big block fuel mileage, smelly interior, not the best looking rig

This Long Roof Is Like Driving Your Sofa Down The Highway! By 72Blazerod
