I Actually Liked This Car O.o — Guz was her name, guzzling (gas) was her game. The car was pretty much nothing but a hassle for me from day one but I really had a lot of fun in it! Held my whole crew in comfort for weekend cruising! Lots of glass to look out! The inside door handles snapped off so we either climbed in 'Dukes of Hazzard' style or reached out the window to open the doors. Hood latch snapped so had to drill holes in the hood to open it. The ride was great but it handled like a tank with spongy shocks! The best thing about this car was the paint job! Aztec Bronze (A.K.A. metal-flake root beer). It would be fun to have the guys from 'Tanked' make an aquarium out of it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The rolling window! Excellent visibility. Lots of room. Accoustics with the right sound system were great!

Cons: Funky looking. Horrible gas mileage, pot metal parts broke off easily.

Greatest Car In The World For A Teenager! — I will find one of these cars to purchase for my teenage daughters to drive. It is ugly as sin but as I described earlier, it is built like a walker bulldog (thats a tank). You can jump it off a 6 foot wall and it just keeps on going. The thing had a skid plate of solid steel under the front steering linkage and oil pan.

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

Pros: This car was (in mine and my brothers expert opinion) un-flipable! Good solid car! low maintenance costs and the thing ran forever. I grew up in the era of the Dukes of Hazzard and My brother and I did all their tv stunts and many more . I know you are asking yourself WHY? but it was moms car and we snuck it out.

Cons: The beast wieghed about 6000 pounds it was a TANK!

Every Car Has A Purpose... This One's Was Short Lived. — 6 cylinders of AMC fury. My first car. Bought for $400. Drove about 400 miles before it broke and I sold it for $250. This car is erm; uhm... "1 of a kind". I didn't drive it enough to really form a full opinion on it, but it was underpowered, sloppy in the corners, unreliable, musty old car smell. Car makes you look like a rock star everywhere you go.

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

Pros: Cheap. Simple for an experienced mechanic to upkeep. Came with a rush tape.

Cons: The car generally sucks.

If you are short on cash this can be cheaper than renting a car. I sold this car a year later for exactly what I had into it despite having a slight accident in it. Read More
