This is my first car, and my all time favorite. The power is amazing, especially when you open up the motor with just bolt-ons. The engine is still very strong at almost 100k.
The cabin noise is quite loud due to the V8 exhaust note, especially with an after-market cat-back. However, the stereo in the car is great, which makes the inside exhaust note hardly noticeable.
Although the ride is somewhat harsh, the car handles very well in wet or dry conditions. The only thing you have to worry about is it going sideways on the 1-2 shift.
Most of the problems were due to the car being drag raced. I haven't had any major problems due to normal wear and tear.
The worst thing about the car is the poor visibility. The rear spoiler blocks half of your rear window, while the dash is long, which makes the front of the car hard to judge.
The interior is quite "plasitcky". A few things creak and crack during normal driving. The steering wheel radio controls, though, are a nice touch and work well. The red interior lights are a nice feature, as well, keeping the driver alert of all conditions.
This car turns many heads, and many people nod, or even compliment your car.
