1966 Dodge Polara 500 383 4Barrel from North America
Drive '66 Dodge Polara 500, you'll love it!
No problems with the car, just normal maintenance.
This is a great car. It looks like brand new, and drives wonderfully. The quality of the Polara is evident, as it is 39 years old. My car is a 500 model, which gives it improved handling and braking.
The only con about this car is that it gets poor gas mileage due to the large engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I don't think this is a legitimate review. Only 30K miles on it when it was 30 years old?
And he rates it 10/10 in everything including reliability and operating costs which is just ridiculous.

I purchased this car from the original owner in 1996. I suppose that the miles on the odometer could possibly be more than what it reads, if the car had gone over 100,000 miles. I believe that the odometer is only capable of going to 99,999 miles, and then reverts to all zeros. But, all I know is what it read when I got it.
The running costs of a car consist of not just gas and oil. The insurance costs are very low, and thus poor gas mileage is not such a bad thing. Furthermore, this car is not required to complete emissions testing, and registration is very low in cost. So, the total cost of running this car is quite good when compared to the cost of licensing and insuring my Lexus.
As for reliability, this car has only let me down two times. Once, the coil wire came loose, and the car wouldn't start. I plugged it back in and it was fine. The second time, my fuel pump gave out close to home. This is a very reliable car, especially considering its age.
Lastly, the steering is very smooth. I have let my friends drive it, and they all comment about the smooth feel. The wheel seems to endlessly turn before it comes to the stop, one way or the other. It is effortless to drive.
