Glc = Great Little Car — This was my first brand new car. I was working at San Onofre commuting over 150 miles each day when the 65 bug died on me. I needed something new that was basic transportation. I bought this new from the dealer as a bare bones car. No radio, no cigarette lighter (even though I was a smoker at the time), still NO AIR. About $4300 out the door. RED - I transplanted the 8 track player from the bug and a radio. I had to drill into the front fender to install a Pep Boys antenna- Gutsy stuff. This car was fun - not sure of its HP but it was a 4 speed manual and moved along pretty well. And it got real good gas mileage. I tried real hard on one tank of gas to see what it could do if I took it pretty easy. It got about 35 MPG. It usually got between 28 to 30 no matter how hard I drove it. It would do 80 no problem. It did spend a winter in Michigan and came though without a hitch. The car was very reliable - never left me in the lurch. I put about 100,000 miles on it when we decided we needed a bigger car now that we had two kids. So I traded it in for my next car.

Pros: Economical, Reliable, god performance - Great Value

Cons: small -
