Awesome Car For Free — short stout little car that gets really good gas mileage. i got it for practically nothing, i worked on cleaning up a friends place. 5-speed manual. the car gets up to speed real quick like a jack rabbit, but it needs a tune-up first. for sitting around for so long it needs a little TLC.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: good gas mileage
Cons: carbureted 4-cylinder
