    ok from the outside but the real truth comes out when my dh puts in on the rack! If you are considering buying it please have a mechanic look it over!

    Depends what you are looking for. It's a sweet ride for weekend drives, but if you are looking for a daily driver I would not look there. It's likely a gas hog, unsafe by today's safety standards and going to need constant care and maintenance to keep it on the road.

    Quote:I am curious how it is unsafe by today's standards? It may not have an airbag, but it weighs as much as a full size truck which minimizes collision related injury... as far as it being a gas hog [​IMG] I drive a 15 passenger van with a v10 that gets about 12 mpg so......... To each his own [​IMG]

    I haven't seen one of those cars in that kind of shape for a good 10 years or more.

    I'd rather be in one of those in a head on than one of these newfangled plasic jobs any day. Especially those smart cars... Death in a box IMHO.

    I too like the steel but I would advise you that since the 90's (I think) the cars have been designed to drop the front in in a collision where the older cars are not so safety equiped.
