• ~ what could be pointless about an invisible cargo hauler that has been upgraded, maintained and will always be worth what you paid? can't break the speed limit all the time.

  • Wow, this brings back memories. This was my first car, right down to the color, although mine was an automatic. Got it in '87, the summer before my sr. yr. in college, and kept it until '96. Never had one problem with it, aside from the a/c crapping out a year or so before I sold it. I loved that car and am still kicking myself for getting rid of it.

  • I have the 3-speed automatic brother of this car right down to the paint and interior colors. 35 years have been much harsher on this one though and the interior is falling apart. The body is still strong though, and even under all the faided paint and deteriorating hoses and parts, she runs stronger and more reliably than any other $750 craigs-list weekend find I could have chosen for sure. So little actual plastic and so much long-lasting steel, and the parts are so cheap if not entirely local, I still have much more fun driving this car, I hope to get her looking as good as this one some day.
