General Comments:

This is my first car ever. I found it in a junk yard with a bad paint job, a broken windshield, and nothing worked. I looked at it and thought, "Wow, I would love to fix that thing up." When I went over to the yard to look at it, the owner needed to use alligator clips to start it! I have done so much work to this car, and now, after a new paint job, new top, and a new starter, the car is not only road worthy, but is now starting to get the attention of everyone. If I could do this all over again, I definitely would!

General Comments:

This is my first car which my parents bought new in 1972.

I have always enjoyed it and still do.

The engine delivers all the power you need with its four barrel Quadrajet carburetor and 350 V-8.

The ride is very smooth and the handling o.k. for a large car.

The power steering is excellent and requires little effort to turn the wheels even when the car is stopped.

I like the styling and muscle car looks!

The vinyl seats are torn, but still comfortable. I hope to replace the vinyl on the seats, roof, and headliner.
