My mom bought this car back in 1995, we drove it for 8 years, then she bought a new car. It sat in the driveway for at least 2 years, a few adjustments it was up and running again. Now it's my car and running fine. We use to look back and say wow we wasted our money. Now we are amazed how this tank keeps going. It saved me money for a for my first car, insurance, and taxes. Overall this thing will never let you down after 156,000 miles it's going strong.
