Its a fun, quick little car. Handles like a go kart, and is easy enough to throw around on the track. Has lots of storage space, and is a cheap, and very fun GT.


Not as fast as it could be.


Overall, This Is A Great Car, For A Single Males Daily Driver. — Honestly, I love this car. There really aren't many negatives, for what I use it for. Its my daily driver, and it does everything I need a vehicle to do at this point in my life. Its a safe car, that handles ridiculously good, especially for its age.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

A Unique Car, I Loved It And Would Buy Another If I Had A Bigger Garage. By Jim

I paid $400 for this car when I was 20. It had no rust and ran great. It was like a little Ferrari with an even smaller engine. It sounded fast, but it wasnt. 4 wheel dic brakes were pretty high perfo... Read More
