1987 Buick Skyhawk Review

Killer Skyhawk... One Day I'll Find Another — By far, the best looking J-car, especially with the hidden headlights. It was my first new car and I'd probably would still have it except that I drove the hell out of it and did crazy things (like off-roading) that led to its engine blowing up (fire and convex dents in the hood) just 4 years into ownership. I got it up to 185km/h several times -not bad for its 96hp and 3speed auto trans. It was the car I took on a record 21 hour drive from Toronto to the Florida border on a spontaneous trip. It was also known as the crazy car thanks to the multi-coloured paint job, and toy soldiers glued to where part of the front bumper used to be. Must find photos!

Pros: In a world full of pedestrian Cavaliers and Sunbirds, mine stood out from the crowd

Cons: The vague 'check engine' light, Probably should have paid more attention to it...

1987 Buick Skyhawk Review

The First Car — Wow! My first car. It was great at first but quickly became a beater after someone backed into it the first day I had it. Then I rear ended my friend and it just was the icing on the cake! But it worked great til it overheated and died. So many good times in that ride! haha

Pros: None.

Cons: Everything.

A 70's Don't By Jason

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

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
