I Like This Car A Lot And That's Why I Bought It. — I like this car a lot and that's why I bought it. I haven't put that much money into it yet. Only about 150 dollars so far but, I'm sure I will be putting a lot more into it. It has great potential and I will make sure that it receives the treatment that it deserves.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its a 442. Need I say more?

Cons: I have a lot of work to still do to it but, that's normal for any older car.

It's The Most Amazing Car I've Ever Ridden In. I Wouldn't Trade It For Anything. — I love how loud it is and how well the car handles, it's just the most expernsive car to fix up to make fast. Overall, I don't think any other is better then my oldsmobile 442 that I've seen. Although it is a tank and is hard to fit in most parking spots, it does amazing on the highway.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The sound and feel.

Cons: The carborator makes it difficult to start when it's cold.

Pros: Just plain fun.  Turns heads and lots of thumbs up

Cons: Only able to drive it 5-6 months a year and never enough time even then.

Awful Car — I hated this car, it was built funny and looked like an Armadillo. It was grey with plastic shields on the hatchback. The gas mileage sucked and the transmission blew. I had it replaced and totaled it a week later.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Everything
