It Was Ok — we ran this car for 115000 miles or so and only spent a couple grand in repairs , so it was a pretty good unit ... 305 4bbl ran pretty good after some tweeking to the electronic Q-jet carb , true duals and a fresh air hood , 90 mph in the quarter mile was attainable ... wish it had a posi-trac , 3.73 gears lit up right rear tire for a hundred feet or more on concrete .... this car handled with the best of them and rode pretty good too .

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: yea i'd take another one with a larger motor ... would have been a wicked street car

Cons: body integrity was an issue with wind noise and leaks

Bottom Line, Sweet Looking And Performing Monster. Buy It In Black. — LOUD. Great sound and power. 420hp is enough to have some fun on the road. Got it for 5 grand, got 12 thousand invested. Fun car to drive and a great way to burn gas fast. Just need better brakes with cammed engine.

Pros: LAST GM MUSCLE CAR
