Great Car — I like the v8 and the luxury feel of the car, very spacious and smooth ride, big engine for more power and all metal car for safety. Everything in this car is amazing for the buy and the car held up good for a 1993.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's oldschool,smooth drive,power, luxury, safe

Cons: Lack of horsepower, big, 10-15mpg city

Best Car Ever! — OWNED ALL THOSE HONDA PUNKS!! I bought it for $130, put $2000 into it, and drove it like a bat out of hell.. It never lost to a honda, although it had a good run against a silvia and a mustang (lost). Best win ever was an audi a4 turbo... I buried the needle on the highway (140km speedo), and kept it on the floor.. just kept pulling away from him lol. He was acutally mad when he blew past after I had let off... Stock: 307 5.0 V8, 700r4 trans. Aluminum Hood 2.73 Rear Gear Posi-Track No pwr options (lighter) Mods: Stainless exhaust, y-pipe to back. No catalytic converter K&N Air Filter Wide Rubber

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The power, the look, the off roading, the drag racing, winter driving capabilities... everything about it.

Cons: How the gas gage drops as the speedo goes up lol
