This is a boat of a car with room for six. I can haul two full size bicycles, one in the back seat and one in the trunk.
Driving this car I know I'm safe. I am surrounded by 5000 lbs of steal, which expands in front of me and behind me for a vast distance.
When I first got the car the engine was dying, the previous owner lacked any knowledge of cars and did not take care of it. I decided to go all out. A summer of weekends and $6000 later I lowered in my 500 horsepower self built 355 with performance everything and a 11:1 compression ratio. This leads me to the next point.
This is the most dependable and easy to maintain car I have ever known. I have replaced almost every part on this car, (most were the original 20 year old parts), myself. And I have had no formal mechanical training.
This car will be on the road until I can no longer buy gasoline, of which I burn a lot, and every time this 5000 lb beast rockets by a hopped up civic or some pony car, I will laugh at the look of amazement/horror on the face of the other driver.
