This car defines style


It was restored when I got it and it has not had any problems since.

General Comments:

I love the way this car looks! Fins are the way to go.

The car sounds great and is powerful to boot. Has around 300hp and 450ft lbs of torque. This is the first car I've driven with a 3 speed tranny, but I like it.

Very large inside and stylish. Overall, a snazzy car to own.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
