    Awesome Old School Coupe Car, It Could Be Call As The Fwd Version Of Toyota Ae86 — engine : short for acceleration, but its just for a minute to go at 120 km/h suspension : a little harder with stabilizer exterior : this what i love, a coupe 2 door car, very rare in here. parts : because its old and rare, than its hard to find.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: car body

    Cons: engine wiring harness, un tidy.

    Great For A First Car —

    Preformance- it is not a Skyline, but it isnt a 1400. i think the car will get down to 9.5-10 sec to 100km/h if it has weber twin sidrafts with a 30mm branches and a 57mm freeflow exhaust. it sits on the road rather well if you take it's age in perspective. Build Quality-Rather good i think. the engine is still running great and everything is still working. the only drawback is that the rubbers are starting to perish and giving problems. Appearince- whel if you are into box shape cars then this is the car is for you. personaly this is one of the best looking cars. its not what you call pretty but it has a tipe of coolnis about it. the interior is good but can do with some work but it is much better than one of these cheap cars of to day. Cost of ownership- i do not know how much it cost but it is not expensive to owne. lite on feul (not like i drive it) and realy not expensive to do maintanance Fun factor- Depends if you look at it from a driving side yes you feel like you are connected to the road. it is not fun when your moyher drives the car. but when you trick it out like neons souns then its a diffrent story.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: nice to drive. never will breack

    Cons: old

    Good In Snow — This little econo-box would go off-road on Jeep trails, in snow and never get stuck. I never did figure out why it never got stuck. Mine had bad exhaust so I could hear the engine. It ran like a swiss watch, never missed a beat. Handled good, didn't have that right-left pull that front wheel drive cars get when the tires spin. I think it got around 30-35 mpg, topped out around 105 mph. It was the first car I ever sold that still ran, although I bent one of the lower control arms using it to winch the car off the edge of a cliff, (long story) since there wasn't anything else to hook to.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: ran like a swiss watch

    Cons: not made in USA

    The Go Kart — IT is my new toy, I got it with only 104k miles on it!! the radio still works as well as the heat and A/C. but the best part about it is that is only takes 20 to fill the tank

    Pros: you can make a left hand turn @ 50

    Cons: the paint

    Nissan Sentra — Didn't hold up to damage too well. Not the prettiest looking car. Engine runs very nicely though. Interior was roomy so i had no complaints there. which is good

    Skateboard On Wheels — its a pretty zippy little car. manual, so great handling and better gas mileage. a little dinged, but there's room, and it hauls. just wish i could get rid of the oil leak

    Pros: roomy, gas mileage, power

    Cons: oil leak

    Quick, Sporty, Fun, Reliable, And Fuel Efficient — Thought the car only has a 1600cc engine in it, it's a very light body. The sport coupe model came with dual sway bars and a fastback hatch style.

    Pros: great gas mileage, lotsa fun.

    Cons: minimal aftermarket support, and cramped in the back seat.

    Long Lasting Car — This car was old but it worked. Never had any major problems and only had 225k only problem was the body was rusting so we gave it to a junk yard. Other then that its excellent, newer ones are way better!

    Pros: Above

    Cons: Above
