Truly a car that will last if you know how to perform routine maintenance. I love this car! At 210,000 I redid the Intake Manifold gasket, water pump, and haven't had any leaks since. The only other problems I have had have been electrical from the wire rotting out. These are simple fixes, just hard to trace where sometimes. I run Valvoline Max Life Full Synthetic oil. In town mileage is okay, highway is better than most cars get today. Add an HHO system and you will get over 35+mpg highway.
Mileage, ease of maintenance, and a body that will last longer than any thing in the car. I am currently at 256,000 miles with no worries it won't make it 300k.
Cheap interior doors.., get an alternator with a lifetime warranty.
