If you own one could you plaese tell me how great they are or how often they break down and how much is needed to keep them a daily driver?
if this idea of driving a classic muscle car is not possible what type of car would satisfy my love for classic muscle?
if i did get a chevelle is it worth buying a true ss or should i get a cloned ss because they are cheaper?
4 speed or automatic?
and how high would the insurance be for an 18 year old in new jersey driving a chevelle.
please put in your comment if you have or had a chevelle so i can see who has had actual experince with one of these treasures.

Thank You
