    /----/ The tune up service on the Ferrari cost more than the Cutlass is worth.

    ..in the last twelve months, I spent a total of $4,629.81 on repairs and maintenance.

    If we are going to factor in maintenance costs into this dream car concept, then you're better off going with a Dodge Demon. Maintenance isn't going to be crazy expensive on it and it will last for a long long time

    Relax


    My Grandpa’s green Jaguar restored to new condition. Saddest day of my life was when I had to let it go.

    I see a lot more cutlasses on the road than ferraris.

    So there.

    Thats my point. Why not pick something rare and expensive?

    Because I don't want something that needs a $10,000 tuneup, or a $5000 brake job, or a $30,000 clutch job.

    Honestly...I'd be quite happy with this:

    Wait, why is that Valiant dusting a Porsche?

    550 horsepower? Yeah, that'll do it.

    160+MPH, corners at 1G, high 11's in the quarter mile (through the mufflers, on street tires, with 2.94 axle gears), reliable enough to drive 3000 miles in a week...and most of it came straight from the Chrysler parts book, down to the wheel bearing grease!

    And yes: the plate really is "NUKE GM".

    This one has Hurst hatch T-Tops...first made available on the 1976 T/A Special Edition 752bfb4e7a22162407636b1286ba4f53.jpg for the Pontiac 50th Anniversary. Eventually it was a dealer-installed option, and could be installed on 1971-1978 F-body (Firebirdb & Camaro)...Why 1970 models didn't make the cut...I don't know...since they're essentially the same...

    Personally...I didn't like the wrap around rear window that came out on all F-bodies in 1975...although the wide B-pillars made seeing while backing up very difficult...
