At Least It Doesn't Look Like A Cross Between A Kidney Bean And A Used Bar Of Soap. — Style: Pimp I can drive through any neighborhood with impunity Diesel engine has the carbon footprint of Godzilla Considered POLUT4U as a license plate - settled on CAR Rides very nice, comfortable Insurance is $212 a year Unique in appearance Has the weight distribution similar to a flat bed dually two wheel drive pickup Gets about 20 mpg even with 186,000 miles on it Leaves an Exxon style oil slick where ever I park THE AIR CONDITIONING WORKS!!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: My father bought it new in 1981

Cons: It is a driving experience - remember 1981 cars?

'86 Toro By Katie

This boat is a classic. Made back when cars were suppose to offer a comfortable ride. Bench seating in the front makes for great dates. ;) Not a fan of the 'red' or rather orange paint, but still shar... Read More
