    Knuckle Buster — I bought the car cheap because it needed transmission work, or so I thought. I replaced the transmission (not recommended since these cars have absolutely no room to work on them) and the issue was still there so I go rid of the car.

    Pros: Shaved door handles

    Cons: Couldn't get it to run correctly.
