Good Commuter Car — The car has paid for itself many times, which is easy since it only cost me $5.00 The sway bar links are broken so the handling is sketchy but its not worth the trouble to fix them. The power is a little low, but it does have 206,000 miles on it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Dependable, inexpensive to drive and maintain.

Cons: The steering is floppy

Oldsmobile 88 Royale —

It has decent rate of acceleration since it has the fuel injected 3800. It runs decent for a beater car. It currently has a cam sensor blew out of it cause I was running it too hard. The knob on the cam gear melted off and now my hall effect sensor cant sense what position my cam is at compared to my crank. Which would be bad if my car was equipped with an OBD II computer system cause then it wouldnt start. With an OBD I setup it just makes me run a little rich. Performance wise it has a little git up and go to it but the handling isnt the greatest. It is a little loose for my taste but you hardly feel any bumps going down the interstate. Appearence wise it doesn't look the greatest. Being that it is a mechanics car it always seems to be the last one to get worked on and washed lol. But thats the great part cause it's such a dependable car I dont have to work on it much. Milage wise, it gets low to mid 20's depends how I drive lol. I think this car is somwhatt fun to drive just cause I kinda beat the hell out of it lol. Reverse donuts are fun lol.

Pros: Dependability

Cons: Definatly not a chick magnet lol

It Was Free — It was a free car, lasted me almost long enough to get a good reliable car. Blew the head gasket at one point, and would cost more than what the car was worth to get it fixed, so I had to do it myself. Then one of the freeze plugs rusted out and had to be replaced, then the harmonic balancer, and finally it overheated one last time when more freeze plugs blew out and it never ran again.

Pros: It had a/c, got decent mileage, it was free, it had a V6 with decent power, it was free, had plenty of room, it was free

Cons: Ugly as sin, attracted accidents(hit by a deer and 2 SUVs), overheated constantly, embarrassing to drive
