Had a manual too. I fit lots of stuff in the back, used it like a truck.
Was my first car. After me my brother drove it past 200,000 miles and it started to get more expensive to repair. Sold it for $1200.
Would I buy one again? Yes and no. These things are only getting harder to keep going. But I miss it so much. It was such a comfortable car, unlike any car I’ve been in. The seats, and the seating position were sublime. If I ever find myself with enough land to store project cars and I can find one for cheap (shouldn’t be hard) I’ll definitely let it rot away on my property.
