    Great Family Car For Long Trips. — This car seems to just keep on going; like it will run for ever if you just take care of it. That is what I want most in a car, and that is what I like most about this car. It is also very comfortable and roomy on the inside. This car rides very smoothly.

    Pros: This is a very roomy car. It has a lot of storage space. I have taken this car on many long trips, 12+ hrs from Bristol to ATL and back, and she has never let me down. I used this car to pick up weight equipment from all over the South East, so you can really pack this mule and she will hold the load. It holds six people with comfort and ease.

    Cons: This car does not handle the ice well. I was doing about 35 over a bridge and the tail started to come around my right side while I had the front wheels pointing straight.

    Great Car — Like the comfort and the smooth ride it has a lot of space for a family as well as cargo space I don't like that it doesn't get very good gas mileage but it's decent for a V8 it's a great family car

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Rides smooth a lot of interior space as well as cargo space

    Cons: None

    The Interceptor — like the caprice it was a solid fast and cheap to obtain car could be pricey to maintain due to its service with the police but a big fast solid american car better looking then the caprice but slower but not by much.

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

    Pros: fun to drive easy to scare other motorists when u merge onto the highway at 90mph

    Cons: gas guzzler

    Bluesmobile — This car is a tank. Acceleration isn't bad, handling could be better but who knows how many miles the shocks have on 'em (the odometer reads 264,600). It used to be a Virginia State Police car, and still has the fold-in spotlight. It's since been painted black with a Maaco-quality paint job. It was probably a taxi at one point, too. I mainly got it for commuting to work and for something to put a ham radio in, because I wouldn't want to drill holes in my other cars for an antenna... This one, who cares! Gas mileage isn't the greatest but it's about the same as my '88 Mustang GT despite being a much larger car. Other drivers seem to be scared of it. I'm not sure why..is it the crappy body work, the fold-in spot light, or the antenna? Do they think I'm a cop or have no insurance? Who cares, they stay the hell away from me! Interior room is great, I'm 6'3" and I can sit up straight. Everything works on the car..cruise control and AC. When I got it, it looked like someone had tried to use a hammer to remove the radio, and it needed a good cleaning. It was an impound--the guy who had it before didn't want it back--so that probably accounts for the condition it was in. It also had some other minor problems, but nothing major. I got a wiring diagram for it on Ebay for $10, well worth it. For a beater, you can't beat an ex cop-car! No pun intended!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The fold-in spotlight

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The leather seats and the Digital dashboard

    Cons: Its pretty big and it has a long hood on it

    97' Ford Crown Victoria — My Crown Vic has an excellent engine in it, with the large V8. Plenty of power!Full leather interior, New Sound System (Dual 12's and a 10 powered by 2000 watts of power!!!), and lots of other stuff that I dont want to type out. The only thing is, its a Ford. I am not a Ford fan at all but thats what i drive because i dont have the money for anything else so I live.

    Pros: Engine, New Sound System, and full Leather Interior!

    Cons: FORD

    Cop Car? — I loved this car and I wish I wouldn't have sold it. This was a great car for the very cheap 2000 dollars I payed for it. I owned it for a year and did general maintaince items on it such as tires a set of brakes all the way around. Everything in this car worked and having been a prison car it was very well taken care of. This is the only car that I have ever owned that I cried when I watched drive out of my drive way knowing it wasn't coming back. This car would do 135 without tring real hard and thats the fastest i ever wanted to talk it. This is a great car, and if you think you can deal with how big it is in a parking lot and the gas mileage which isn't that bad for a car of its size, then buy one.

    Pros: Fast, comfortable, quiet, bullet proof, huge trunk

    Cons: The doors are  made of cheap plastic, the back seat is kinda small
