Worthy Muscle Car Project Even Tho It's A 6 Cylinder. — I loved this car but it didn't love me. The Turbo died after a few months and without the Turbo the car was a real pig. Then the gas tank started to leak, the paint started to peel, and I let the car go for about $500.00 to a guy that promptly wrecked it. Maybe I got out just in time!

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

Pros: Power, when the Turbo is working.

Cons: Without the turbo, its a grandma car

I Miss Her — This was my first car. I loved it and wish I never got rid of it. It was a pimp looking car with a nice V8, comfortable, roomy and just cool in a Saturday Night Fever sort of way. I wish I still had it and miss it greatly.

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

Pros: Classic style, comfort,

Cons: none

Blast From The Past — First car I learned to drive on. I was 16 yrs old. The car was 3 years old at that time. My Father special ordered it from a local Buick garage in 1979. Black w/red plush limited interior spoked wheels with raised white BFG tires. That car turned heads everywhere. Weekends were exciting just anticipating goin' out cruisin' and impressing girls. Car had plenty of power. Asking for trouble with 87 octane! Detonation galore. Burnt hole at top of number 6 piston and had to be replaced. After that, Premium gas only.Car was totaled in 1984 Parents were in accident by reckless driver of Truck. Fortunately Parents were O.K.

Pros: Looks ,Power,Fun

Cons: Detonation

Its A Great Car And I Dont Have To Worry About Dying In A Little Crash!!! — I love the way it looks with the older muscle car look and it has the coolest interior it is red with a wood steering wheel and trim! It has a 4.9 V-8 engine so it can get up and go and it gets around 17-23 mpg

Pros: Not many ppl have them, they have an awesome motor and decent gas milage,

Cons: ummmmmmmmm i cant think of anything

It Was Brown.... — owned this car for about a year and a half right away, i replaced the old Tubro 350 with a 200r4 transmission, so.. 3 speed to a 4 speed overdrive automatic transmission. K&N air filter. Duel exhaust was also added with 40 series flowmasters. ( LOUD!!!) added 295 50 tires. so almost 13inchs of tire across. Us MAg rims, deep dish there was very littel rust on the car. Had 1 bad spot that my manager and i took care of on a day off. drive for a little. Then sold it to get my 81 cutlass To bad the oil pump went it in, to the guy i sold it too.. maybe its better that i sold. i bout from a friend his Buick 350. going to build it up and put it in the regal. that would have been a damn power engine. but there expensive to build. RARE engine, hard parts to find, and parts arent cheap

Pros: only 2 registerd in Abbotsford. got my eye on the second one to buy :)

Cons: Gas killer. pontiac 301 was top 6 worst engine built.

Great Cheap Muscle Car — There's lot's of room in the front and back. Great stock radio if you're lucky to find one unmodified. It's also good for piling in your school buddies too! Great visibility, low cost maintenance. This car was my high school cruiser.

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

Pros: High quality Buick craftsmanship.

Cons: 3.8 lack-luster engine.
