Gary's driving impression:

            "When I first saw the car, I thought to myself, hmm, cool cruiser, maybe not my first choice in color, but its pretty clean and unique. As most know, I'm a diehard Chevy guy, and prefer mostly Camaro's, Nova's and Chevelle's. Then, as I entered the car, I noticed, it still has the feel of American Muscle car, which kinda made me a little more optimistic. I noticed race style lap belts, a fire extinguisher, B&M shifter and a shift light on the dash. This all got my juices flowin'. Upon turning the key, flippin the toggle on the dash and hearing the beast come alive, I realized, this aint your typical Monte Carlo cruiser. The motor has a nice lope and idle, sounds very solid and strong. After fiddling with the ratchet shifter, and backing it out of the showroom, I took off on my usual test route. Right out of the parking lot, I immediately appreciated the power steering and power brakes, feels like a modern day car. Street manners were surprisingly light and nimble. I assumed it would feel like a heavy tank and sway all over, but somebody obviously took the time to sort out the suspension, proper coil rates, etc. to make this car handle very well. Throttle response is great. The power is is amazing, and I don't even feel like I got in to the secondary's. We don't like to go out and abuse our clients cars, but at least to get a feel for what its got, to hopefully better interpret for the potential buyer. The transmission was set up right. It shifts perfectly, it downshifts upon accelerating as needed. The tranny was overall, the way it should be, which is few and far between lately. Lastly, temperature; Wow, I could barely get this car to 190, it sat between 150-180 from dead stop traffic, to up and down my secret test strip. Overall, the car was a blast to drive. It handled amazing for a larger car. I was very impressed, and caught myself staring at it, long after I had driven it, thinking to myself, why have I never owned one of these? On top of that, I really like the color now! In summary, if you're looking for a fun street/muscle car, that doesn't have the stereotypical look, is easily a sleeper, under $20k investment, and you appreciate well sorted out hot rods.... well, this car is for you!
