1977 Pontiac Catalina 5.7L 350 Horsepower from North America
The car glides like a superior luxury cruiser
There was a clog in the air conditioner line. The condensate from the air conditioner drained inside of the car instead of outside of the car. The mechanic cleaned it out in a matter of minutes no charge.
I had to replace the hoses in the car just because they were old. It cost approximately $300.
The carburetor had to be rebuilt. The cost was approximately $200.
The fuel pump was replaced. My Dad's best friend repaired for almost nothing.
The starter was replaced. My Dad replaced the starter. No charge.
I drive the car for pleasure on Sundays. Most people with new cars challenge its speed and ability. The drivers are usually angry and shocked that this old bucket of bolts out performs their new beauty.
The car belonged to my grandfather. I think he would be pleased to see that it still runs like a dream.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The reviewer apparently believed that because it had a "350" engine, that meant it had 350 horsepower.
Hopefully he has wised up 15 years later.

Actually he likely wised up 20 years later with the 1997 factory stock LS1 345 cubic inch with 345 HP aluminum GM block. Even in 1970 you could buy a 350 Z28 Camaro with HP in the 360 range checked right off the order sheet.
