    Cooleo! — It's cute and little. And even though it's old it doesnt't really look dat old apart from the rust. It speeds up really fast and just drifts smoothly around da corners. Tough it needs a few things done to it like the drivers window, it doesn't go up and down! Don't worry my uncle's a car mechanic. lol he's the one dat got me da car.

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

    Pros: Little tough speedy!

    Cons: Bit rusty but it's getting fixed.

    Never Regretted Buying This, It Has Lasted All These Years. — A great car, 4 out of 5 only because of the boxy exterior and power. I bought this used in 1999 and drove it until 2006, now I'm giving it to my son who will soon have his license. Everything about the car is still perfect, just needs some exhaust system work (rust and corrosion), a new battery and starter. The interior is roomy and comfortable, plus icy A/C and pretty good speakers. I get high mileage, around 30 mpg city, which is incredible considering the year of the car. A bit of rust on the outside, not very noticeable. Automatic trans., has a bit of trouble going up big hills but that isnt much of a problem where I live. A perfect car for someone who just needs to get around town and take a long trip every now and then. Handles very well, easy driving but fun.

    Pros: Cold A/C, roomy, good mileage

    Cons: Old exterior, rust attacks, hard time on big (really big) hills

    Corolla — It was really old, so it had problems. Corollas, however, are well-built cars, it's just when they're 20 years old, they tend to wear out. It definitely was fuel-efficient, even for old outdated technology, and it's ok if you don't much money to spend on a car, but need one.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fuel-efficient, cheap

    Cons: starting to wear down, since it was old

    Ae92 Gts W/ 4a-ge Bigport — not the best performing car, but fun as hell to drive. Who doesnt like revving to 7600rpm and waking up the whole block? cause i know i do. Too bad i cant keep up with any of my friends cars, but i only paid $1600 so who cares.

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

    Pros: high revving inline 4 ftw

    Cons: rust =[

    It Was Definitely Worth It — It may not have good looks or a great appearance but it is going to last forever or at least until I can upgrade to something better. I'd suggest anyone go find a car like this because they aren't expensive anymore and it will get you around for an affordable price.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It will last forever

    Cons: The rusty appearance
