Blue Thunder was once a baby back in (Aug.) 92 when I first got her. She was shiney, full of power (up to 100 horses worth) and had that spark in her eye. She was blue, not sad, but in color! She took me for a ride, and I was in heaven, been on this same ride ever since.
Vegas! She's probably taken me there a hundred times (and back) literally without a hitch and with time to spare (as well as fuel). My highest mpg achieved during the 260 miles trek was 43 mpg. She's sporty and has plenty of pep! She's reliable yet stylish (during her younger days).
More room in the back seats. Overall, an engineering genious! Good build quality with minimal amenities (not tailored to the luxury - but that's ok! Reliability is of paramount importance.
