Is Solid But Not Really Fast! — I am 100% sure that it is the car, i mean the best car ever made! Never had a car like it, is terribly solid and efficient, plus is a rear wheel driver, so u can do some donuts and all, lol if u got em balls!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cons

Oh, the list would be endless...

My First Car :-) — I guess it was ok in 1969 -- but by the time I bought it in 1982, it'd seen it's last days. It stalled at traffic lights and then didn't run at all after I gave it it's first tune-up thinking I could fix it :-)
