Cool Cars Don't Need To Cost Mega Bucks — Awesome car. Minimal maintenance costs and eye watering rarity , great on fuel and great for long cruises. Parts are easy to find and replace and the costs are not astronomical ( except for U.S. Postage.) I couldn't find an honest Corvette with an honest owner, so I bought an awesome Cutlass Salon instead.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Ultra rare in Australia

Cons: Everyone drives beside the car to have a look,

American Roadmaster With Two Leather Couches — A luxury roadmaster with two leather couches I bought the car in July of 2007 with high hopes: 57,000 miles, solid condition, and a damn Oldsmobile. The car has been very solid overall, only needing minor repairs (new alternator, ignition wites, lights). The car rocks like a roller coaster when I zoom down the Van Wyck, but is remarkably smooth for its age. It's comforatble, a head turner, and a symbol when American enginerring and style actually was backed up by true performance.

Pros: Pros: -V6 engine with fine power
-6 Passenger seating
-All steel frame by Fisher
-Classic stock rally 442 rims
-Having middle aged and elderly people compliment my car
-Solid build with minimal problems
-Plentiful parts that are widely avaliable and inexpensive
-Good acceleration and braking (when dry)
-Tasteful tan decor all-around

Cons: -AWFUL fuel economy (10 MPG mixed from a 231 Buick V6!)
-Tempermental carburetor
-Very difficult to parallel park
-Dilapidated headliner (GM issue in general)
-Gauge cluster (no tachometer, fuel gauge off by 1/4 tank, e-brake light broken, lights dimming on its own will)
-70 pounds of kitty litter needed in my trunk for ghetto anti-lock brakes
-Sucky performance from the 3-speed automatic

Good Solid Transportation By danaman

I liked the style of the car. It had a rear spoiler that kind of set it apart. I especially liked the alloy wheels that came standard on it. The V-6 engine was a good compromise of power and good g... Read More

The Beast By BADAZZ
