I've been driving this car since I
bought it more than twelve years ago.
Its been through so much I don't have

accelerate smoothly and its had some
minor engine work done.
I love the reliability. It has its
share of problems but its never stalled
or failed on me. I have had to change
the alternator and starter-motor a few
times although that is because I tend
to use parts from the scrapyard and
I am a bit disappointed that the body
