It Was Fun To Drive — this was my first car i owned it was a 4 cylinder 5 speed with t-tops, i had to get rid of it after it was towed while i was deployed which pissed me off cause i loved that car. it needed some work but it was my baby. and i had some good times in that thing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the t-tops

Cons: it needed new piston rings

Great Car To Drive — the accelaration is quick and sharp braking needs work handling is great.. the only thing that has gone wrong with it is that it needed a new front light haha appearance is great i think i mean its not a skyline or anything but it goes aight

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

Pros: just a fun go karty type car

Cons: if you have more money get a better one like a silvia

If It's What You Can Afford, Do It. — performance is practically nonexistant, but it has lasted pretty well. the car only cost a few hundred so no complaints there. it can be fun to drive sometimes, when it's actually doing everything right it's not too bad of a car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Inexpensive, fuel efficient (1.6 liters)

Cons: 1.6 liter engine. old.

My Favourite Ride For The Summer — performance is ok, but better once i put in the CA18DET, braking isn't the best but rear discs helped a lot. Handling is supurb, Magnificent appearance and unique style. Targa Roof is great for the summer driving down to the beach.

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

Pros: looks fantastic and targa roof can't be beat

Cons: a bit gutless, and getting a little old in the tooth

Unexpected Bargain — There's just something to buying a bomb... Paid only 900 bucks for the car... Its light, its only got 80kW of power... no power steering... manual... no A/C... FWD... Yet... strangely love it... Expect to see it for sale in 3 months.

Pros: economical

Cons: Slow... FWD.. no A/C... no power steering.... vomit inducing yellow...

Bullet-proof. Except For The Whole Rust Thing. — $400. Sold it with 260k on the clock. Other than maintenance items, I only replaced 2 bearings, a radiator, exhaust, and a clutch cable.

Pros: Fuel mileage, handling, t-tops, cheap.

Cons: T-tops leaked, slow, rust.

A Great Cheap Car — Only bought as a run-around after returning company car. Not that many mechanical issues. Never had it serviced in 3 and a half years. Flogged the hell out of it and it just kept going. Definitely did it's job before I traded up.
