    Dream Car — 305 cubic inch engine. Runs nicely, but has an exhaust leak. Handles like a pig and consumes fuel like one too. Virtually no rust. Has the possibility of being converted to a Trans Am. Not many people can say that they got a Firebird as their first car.

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

    Pros: Sounds great

    Cons: Interior needs work

    Great Vehicle — Love this car! My dad and I spent a few years restoring it. It runs like a champ and turns heads everywhere I go. Ill NEVER sell this car. Love driving this thing! Wouldn't sell it for the world! anybody looking for a fun car to turn wrenches on and learn about cars, this is an outstanding vehicle with which to do it!

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

    Pros: Fun, looks great, fun to drive

    Cons: Just old, and it takes work to keep an old car on the road

    Chicks Dug/dig It! — This car is so much fun to drive. The small-block 231ci engine sounds like the Autopia cars at Disneyland (when they were good). I bought it off an incense-maker so it came sparkly red with velvet interior! One of the last of the classic body styles, her frame is sturdy, making her last a long time. Daily driver with few problems for an older car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a head-turner

    Cons: you will not win any races

    Favorite Car Of All Time — THE Best vehicle I've ever driven. Accelerates hard and fast, Brakes fairly well. Handles better than anything I've ever driven. I love the flow of the body lines. By far the best looking car I've ever seen. I've had to repair the motor mounts and replace the carburetor, but what can you expect from a 30 year old car? MPG is awesome since it's a v6, but also is pretty powerful for its age. This car handles amazingly. It's a blast to slam into and put it sideways.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: None
