Seriously, how many of these do you see out there on the road. Probably a ton, yeah so the paint jobs on these are pretty worthless but they will outlive your car anyday. So far I have 146000 miles with original clutch(original d/t warranty 7yr/100K miles) and tons of other originals such as hoses and stuff. Nothing at all wrong. Seems to be fairly sound. I intend to drive it until it falls apart in about 100K more miles
Good trunk space, fold down back seat makes for good hauling and sleeping room. This Shadow was made to live in this new millenium. Durable transmission is one bad mother.
Give me some better glue to hold up the ceiling liner. For now, a cool design of pins workls well for me. Give me some headlight wires that wont rust, so that i can aim them. Highways will throw some roadnoise at you in this puppy that is undesirable.
