    I remember when cars and vans had slots for change. My mothers 1988 Dodge Caravan had one only you would push down on the slot to insert or remove change. This is a very cool car.

    That's called a spid label and it's not always in the trunk. Doug is the type of guy that is GM illiterate.

    My youngest brother had one of these and he put the Canadian chip in it. He would have 3 friends inside and he would have it pegged on the speedo. The only thing that could pass him was the latest Z28 with a V8.

    There are no muscle cars in the 80s, let alone American. No 6 cylinders are "muscle" surely. Get it together, buddy. Start reviewing some real muscle cars and get off the bandwagon budget cars.

    I love them boxy cars of the '70s and 80's. The car was really a car, not a computer on wheels.

    Regan passed a law that limited speedometers to 85 to try and keep kids from speeding they thought if you didn’t know how fast you were going they wouldn’t try so all spedos in cars back then went to 85 in every car and a funny fact when the filmed back to the future they had to build a custom Speedo face to go to 95 so you could see they were going 88 however in the actual movie car the speedo only went to 85 and you can see it in some shots

    Back in the day,,,,these cars were quick. They were very easy to tune,,,and adding a set of sticky tires made them great drag racing machines.Bone stock my buddies ran 13.10 back in 1987 with a set of tires and maybe a cold air intake. Flying for that time period!

    I used to race GN's on the service drive while cruisin gratiot back in the day. I had a monte ss with a zz3 crate engine dropped in, TCI 700r4 and AC baby. I used to edge out GN's everytime. I built my car to beat mustangs. These late 80s early 90s GT's pissed me off. My Monte was cousins with the Grand National. Beautiful car.
