1981 Pontiac Le Mans Review
This Was Another Beater — I had this car given to me from a buddy of mine for some money he owed me. So this was not by choice I needed a winter beater and this thing was there, it was barn yard brown painted with a roller but I could never drive it like that so I sanded it down and repainted it stone wash grey. This had the "Iron horse" (as it was nicknamed) 4 cylinder engine that was extremely tough and reliable. I just made it threw the winter with this car when the frame/unibody broke completely in half cause the windshield to shatter after going over a set of railway tracks too fast ! lol Oh well it was free now its a pop can somewhere.
Pros: it was free !
Cons: ugly ugly ugly
