Pros

Solid, Solid, and did I say, "Solid?" She runs like a tank, albeit, a rusty tank. A.C., cruise control, 5 speed, good m.p.g. "Who could ask for anything more?"

Cons

Finding some parts can be difficult, unless one lives by a good salvage yard.

Dependable Car — If you can find a decent body without too much rust, she would be a good purchase. Yes, antique, but a fun, reliable car. Surprisingly, there are quite a few out there, contrary to what you might think. That's a good sign of quality. Thumbs up.

It Was My First Car — this car was so solid, i never managed to kill it, drove it so hard, even used to put it sideways down dirt tracks doing 120kms on choped springs
