    Reliable, And Fun To Drive — Overall, if cared for and maintained properly, these cars have a lot of power (manual tranny at least) and are a lot of fun to drive.

    Pros: Quick speed and slow

    Cons: Older cars come with extra repairs

    Fun When Running — I miss this car but I threw more than one wrench in my garage when trying to fix fuel and vacuum related problems. Very frustrating to get certain parts off of it. The alternator is an example. Located above the CV shaft and under the firewall side of the intake. The CV has to be removed so if you aren't/dont know a mechanic its expensive. I loved the car enough that I didn't mind the work. Be aware of the crank bolt if you try to remove it use some ear plugs. When I broke it loose it sounded like a shotgun went off in my garage.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun to drive
    Power everything on mine
    Reliable
    A little get up n go

    Cons: Carburetor can be a pain to work on and tune in.
    Back seats are not roomy
    Trunk space is iffy
