Its A Great Car...20 Years And Still Running. — Sat for 3 years without being started, 5 gallons of gas, a new battery and 8 new spark plugs and she fired right up. This car sat through 3 springs, summers, falls, and harsh northern michigan winters. Show me an american car that can sit for 3 years without being started once and fire up on the first try.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Gas Mileage and very reliable.

Cons: Window motors on all but sun-roof and driver side are shot.

Best 1990 Beater — drives really good, can stop on a dime! only repaired the front struts, only starts rattling at 90mph. left fender has a small dent and inside is leather that is in good condition. bought for 500$ from a friend that drove it rough all the time and still works fine. gas is 20/26. nice to drive for being a beater

Pros: roomy, pretty fast, solid, no rust, has 180,xxx miles and cost me only 500$

Cons: replaced the front struts, ok gas, and small oil leak

The 4dsc Sleeper — Was originally my winter beater, had a few randum stock parts laying around so I decided to turbo it. Ran a 14.1 last time it was at the track, but its condition has durastically changed since then. Awaiting refit and repairs.

Pros: Roomy, good MPG (low30s) can be fun to drive, good in winter.  

Cons: Heavy, does not handle well, rust has spread like wildfire.

Excellent Car Brand New Im Sure — I just happen to have gotten this car pre-beaten and its in pretty rough shape. Rust, broken parts, well and the fact that it is a nice car is mainly why i still love it and have. good performance and overall decent fuel economy.

Pros: acceleration, its stick! (5 speed), sounds cool

Cons: had to replace two (2!) struts in the front and the rear ones are leaking and ther is just plain old tons of rust (unbeknown st to the average looker)

Both Boys Have Driven This, Now Its Our Spare — with 230K, its still going strong. Original engine and transaxel, leather seats in front are a mess, sunroof opens but doesnt slide, and the air has a leak, and the rear windows are permanently closed, but it is a solid car, and I wouldnt be afraid to drive anywhere.

Pros: its paid for

Cons: dents from the boys on all four corners and front fender,  bad add on radio/cd combo,  and poor gas milege

Comfortable — I have had my car for 8 months now. It has 146,000 miles on it and runs pretty good. I have had a couple issues like a leak in the power steering fluid and overheating which was fixed with a new temperature sensor. Sometimes it has a hard time kicking into gear. The seating is very comfortable unlike new cars today. I wish it had a bit more pickup, but it is a 1990. I think it's held up pretty well.
