Vl — it is a friends car, and has been lowerd and the wheels are 19" or 20" so the ride is HARSH. becoz of the wheels being so big the speedo dose not work coz the speedo runs off the drive shaft. the car is still fun to drive it has a bit of power! but its hevy and there is at least 2" of dead zone in the stiring witch is a shame, being an 80s car the brakes are not very good and its very easy to lock them up. there is a lot of mods that can be done witch is good. it would be a good car for some one who likes fixing things up, and has at least a basic mechaniccal knoledge.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: power, and its fully sick

Cons: hevy bad bracks and its fully sick

Awesome For Drag Racing, But Makes Me Look Like A Wog Princess! — I probably would have never bought a vl, because I don't like the impression that comes with them, but she's a hand-me-down from Dave. This car is the best $1000 I've ever spent, the torque in it is amazing for a 20 year old car, and the steering is super light. My only complaint is the amount of fuel I go through and the mysterious noise coming from the muffler. I also love the exhaust on this car, everyone knows when I've arrived, hee hee.

Pros: tourquey, good handling

Cons: petrol guzzler
