Vsp — it was a retired unmarked virginia state police car. had a 360ci v8 with a top speed of around 135 mph. nice interior very roomy. this thing was a tank. it could survive almost any car accident. engine was still strong but transmission broke down after 300 thousand miles.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it was a tank

Cons: it doesnt run anymore

1979 Chrysler Newport — It was a wonderful car also my first car. It ran good but had transmission problems. It was as big as a whale!! At todays gas prices it would be a bad car to own for everyday use!! It was owned by old people who took good care of it.

Pros: 318 V8 5.2 Ltr

Cons: Big engine + Gas $$ = walletbuster
