1991 Chevrolet Lumina Z34 3.4 DOHC from North America
A Reliable Performance Machine
The only problem so far has been a Radiator leak it was 210 dollars for a new one, probably around 20 dollars to have had it fixed.
Previous owner replaced fan belts, timing chain, brakes, alternator and clutch all around the 250,000km mark.
This car is very fast and handles better then any other car I've ever driven. It kills 5.0 Mustangs and Camaros on the track, and barely lost to a 5.7L 1986 Corvette! (less than 1/2 a car length in the quarter mile)
The factory sound system is amazing, the Bose audio upgrade sounds nicer then my friends aftermarket stereo composed of a Rockford amp, Rockford deck, Rockford 6x9's and 2 10inch Cerwin Vega subs!
This car turns heads, it sounds and looks like a race car.
The seats are very comfy. The inside of this car is very roomy. The interior is well set up except for the long reach to the climate controls. It has the shortest shift I've ever seen, which makes for fast unnoticeable shifts.
Its gas mileage is pretty average, nothing to complain about, but definately nothing to boast about.
Contrary to popular opinion this car is very reliable. It has 300,000Kms on it, and runs like brand new! If your looking for a nice, rare car that's gonna turn heads, this is your pick!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I read the comment on the Chevrolet Lumina Z34 and I totally agree on what was said. I am 18 and my first car was and still is a Z34. It is so fast and it looks awesome on the road and it sounds great too! So far I have beaten a Dodge Daytona Turbo Z, Chevy Camaro 5.7 liter, and a Mustang 5.0! And now with the greddy stage 3 turbocharger & intercooler I've moved up to Crushing faster cars in the quarter mile. (The 2005 Corvette isn't as fast as they make it out to be.) I've never had any problems with the motor or anything in the interior messing up on me either. All around, I think the Chevrolet Lumina Z34 is the best car that I have ever driven.
I own a Mustang GT 4.6. The Lumina 3.4 could not keep up; the car was too heavy.
