Well once you get it inspected/repaired and running, it should be a fine vehicle to drive daily. Remember it is over 30 years old, so some parts will fail, maybe more so than a newer car, but stay on top of it and it should be cheaper to maintain than buying a new vehicle.

MPG will be around 20 on avg.
