The guy on the right looks like Andrew on a far fetched level....lol

Anyways, that'* sweet lookin car, I'm not much for the late 80'* car....but I'd prolly hit that.


Oh, BTW Andrew, that car is a 5.7L, not a 5.9L, 5.9 is a Dodge

I say pass on it. A L67 with a few mods will walk past it. Preach that to your bro.
But the L67 isn't king of every motor known to man, and the FWD chassis it'* available in certainly aren't the best chassis out there, let alone in GM'* stable. It'll be a looker, perform just fine, be more than enough fun on a nice day, and reliable as sin.

Age isn't always an issue as are mileage, maintenance, etc... That thing looks clean from the pics (but pics can be deceiving..)

My roomate has a 91 Firebird, it'* only a v6, but it'* damn nice to pull off the T-Tops and cruise around in.

I say, he should hit it...as long as it checks out OK mechanically. He'* young and will enjoy it for what it is, plus he'll get the attention of pretty young things. Right now (at his tender age) is a great time to have a fun car like that. He'll have the rest of his life to get serious cars, IMO.

Sure, I like my Bonneville tons, but I had my V8 Camaro back in my day and have fond memories of it.

HIT IT AL!

When shopping for my first Bonne the rules were.... Reasonable on gas, American made, and 4 door (due to a new baby in the house). I we didn't have kids I'd be driving a Camaro, Mustang, or small pickup... Get a 2 door sports car while your young and don't have kids and don't HAVE to have the use of a 4 door sedan.

This being said, I'm glad I bought the Bonne when I did... It did let me have a car that fit the family needs as well as my own inner hot rodder!
