Boring but Bulletproof

ReviewI have abused the hell out of this car and it is still going strong. I purchased the car in 2005 for $400 from a female friend who "forgot to put oil into it" and threw a rod through the block at 90k miles. $600 and 12 hours later ans I had the car on the road. I have used the car as my pickup truck for 4 years carrying as much as 2000 lbs in weight both in the car as well as on the roof. I have also towed a 2000 lb trailer with the car. I currently have 175k kiles on the car and it just wont die. This car has been the epitome of reliability. Also, I have gotten as much as 42 miles to a gallon out of a tank of gas, not bad for a pickup truck
Best FeaturesThe cargo space is good enough for 25 bags of concrete and the roof will hold 24 sheets of 1/2" 4x8 sheetrock. (Yes, I have done both)
Worst FeaturesAvailability of a full size trailer hitch, so I don't have to retofit it with one from a Ford F-150 (Yup, did that as well)
