ben, as a reference to our conversation the other day, what if i told you this was the car we bought?

Best of 2012 contender? Best of 2012 contender.
The pinstriping, color, whitewalls with those AMC road going wheels, it's perfect.

IMO the one of the best designs of the 70's.

I'd say this is not the harder way to show me a new purchase, and then I'd commend your commitment to a life of carseat difficulty. And I'd never get tired of seeing it or hear you complaining about the complaints of cold blooded old cars. Then I'd show you my car is faster.

Ben it's painful to see that Firebird listed as '67. For the love of God change it. and I asked Tony and he just ignored me because it's not a car that he added which matters for some unknown reason.

Sorry Joey. You know it's not intentional, right? Tony and I do appreciate helpful pointers, but we each have a lot of other things on our plates. If I have a window of time on a computer, I usually prioritize prepping new blog posts ahead of making corrections. Also it's really hard to keep track of every comment with the sheer number of posts we have now.

These looked great but drove like a truck. Manual transmission had a throw of about 2 feet, HEAVY steering and really not fast.

My first car in 1986 was this make, model, year and color. The first week I owned it I added 2 4" wide black racing stripes down the hood and roof. It was the "X" package with a 360 cu in V8. I used to smoke Iroc Zs off the line. A great first car, paid $550.00 for it.
