1983 Buick SkyhawkReview
Pos — Bought the car becuase I felt driving an Escort with over 400,000kms on it wasn't a reliable Idea... in the end, shoulda stuck with the Escort... Did not like this buick... cheap, slow, 4 banger engine, poor build feel.... and the bugger stalled when I made slow left turns... I would buy another 400,000K escort before buying another Skyhawk.
Pros: it had a cool racy front end, and the interior was really nice... The seats were decent as well.
Cons: poor performance, sad build quality, no git-up N' go. and the sunroof leaked.

A 70's Don't
This was a tiny little two door. I fixed it up to be my first car but sold it before turning 16. For a little car, I remember it had what I thought was a big V6 engine and too much power Read More
High Quality American Motor
These cars are pretty cool looking, fresh outta the muscle car era, they have a sleek looking mini muscle appearance, but do only come with a 3.8L v6. Not too much power but you can easily get over th... Read More
