1983 Dodge AriesReview
First Car — Piece. Of. Crap. Even for a first car. Red on the outside. Red on the inside. Station wagon. We called it the shaggin wagon. Not so much. The vinyl seats weren't exactly conducive. If you get a chance, do not buy one at any cost.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: storage space
Cons: everything else

I like this car because even in minus 30 c it still would start, it wouldn't even matter if it was burred in a three foot snow bank that ugly little car just would not die. I even forgot to put oil i... Read More
