The last true American Muscle Car
Nothing has really broken on the car, but it does leak oil since I use only synthetic motor oil (previous owner used petroleum-based oil), but that is supposedly normal for synthetic.
Except that I can't keep tires on it (the rears mysteriously keep going bald!) :-)
This is the last true American musclecar, regardless of the fact that it's powered by a turbo V6. There are few cars that will keep up with it. it is cheap to modify if you want to go faster (which I always do), and the sinister monochromatic black paint is nothing short of evil-looking. No lie, when people see me coming up from behind, they move aside. Maybe it's because the CT State Police used to use GN's, or maybe they're just scared. :-)
It rides very well, handles decent for a car of its size, although it could use 4-wheel disc brakes (what car couldn't?) and full instrumentation with a speedometer that goes much higher than 85 mph. If I can keep my foot from dipping into the accelerator too often, I can get 25-28 mpg. Not bad for a car of it's size.
There is nothing better than taking off the T-Tops, turning up the stereo and spooling up the turbo, gotta love thaat whistle.
If you're looking for a performance car that will seat 4 paople comfortable at a reasonable price, find yourself a GN or T-Type and enjoy.
I'll never get rid of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
