1981 Pontiac SunbirdReview
Good Starter Car — This was a well built car. It was fast enough, and excellent on gas. The 5 speed stick made it responsive and fun to drive. The interior was surprisingly comfortable for a small car. Got me a couple of speeding tickets.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: sporty, gas saver
