If Herbie The Love Bug Came Back From War. — I love this car!It has no heat, its like driving a tent on top of a dumpster, and the guages are shakey at best. But you would have to spend $10.000 more to find a car that grabs this much attenion.

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

Pros: make me happy

Cons: cold in the rain

Funky, Different, And Weird — grandmother bought it because my dad bugged her so much about how cool it was, after she was done with it she gave it to him

Pros: pretty much a tank

Cons: windows can't be rolled down, only taken off
