Good and strong for its money

Cons

Looks and sounds awful

Great To Use As A Mule — Hard as a rock and still moves! Looks awful, but is cheap, the parts too! Can't impress a girl, infact you can delete yourself from a girls phonebook if you show with it. Not for the city, as it isn't quite that small.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
