I bought this car 8 years ago with
almost 80k miles on it. I have since
put 90k miles on the car. Now, at 13
years old, 170k HARD miles, and a
accident, it has reached the end of
it's glorious life.
Very well put-together. With the very
nice shifting 4 speed manual
transmission, and the 90hp engine, it
got its slim 2200lbs going in a
hurry. I had this thing over 110mph
and it was still accelerating! The
hatchback with the seats down could
really carry a lot.
I write this as a memorial to a car
that lasted me through a lot of jobs
and women. Little Colt, you will be
missed. *sniff* *raises beer*
