This car is fantasic! The fit, touch and feel of a BMW 5-series (I traded in a 318 Convertible for it) at 60% of the price! A very comfortable back seat. Great handling, better than a 50-series, incredible 6500 rpm engine with standard 3.90 rear end. I used to drive an Omega in Europe with a 5 speed transmission, this is better.
Large tachometer reminds me of a 69 Impala with a big engine
Chevrolet 350 cu in. V-8 and 6 speed manual (keep the 3.90 rear end)
