You'll Have To Pry It Out Of My Cold, Dead Memory Cells — REALLY WELL BUILT.... I mean it lasted that long with just some clutches, tires, oil, brakes, and of course gasoline. It did get dismal fuel economy in its old age, like 16-17 city. This is bad considering its size and engine displacement, but hey it was old. It was really fun to ride around in as a kid: loud, unique, my dad let us move the shifter for him, etc.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nostalgia, spite

Cons: Fuel Economy, holes in floor, dents, paint color, safety, volume (both types), seats, etc

79 Corolla Sr5 Te51 — Engine never stops running, the carb gives it quite a lil power with the secondary jets. Never breaks down on me. One day itll look like new again! Its super fun to drive and i put at least 100 miles a week on it because i cant go more then a few days without driving it.

Pros: Fuel economy, comfort, speed, reliability

Cons: Underpowered for interstate travel (still gets 30mpg) and needs paint

Well, There Are 2 Types Of Cars- The Kind You Drive And The Kind You Don't Drive. — I bought this car in 2007 with about 108,000 miles on the clock. It's taken a lot of money in repairs to keep it in decent condition, but the gas mileage easily pays for the repairs and this is easily the most fun car I have ever driven. The good thing about having the stock 1.2 engine is that you get to drive it like a rally car pretty much all the time =)

Pros: Gets thumbs up wherever you drive it, great gas mileage for the year, uses absolutely no oil, relatively cheap to repair, fun, can be taken to car shows with dignity intact

Cons: The seats are legendary for falling apart, and other than that, it's an old Toyota, so if you drive it in winter it's gonna rust.
