  1. They are affordable. (You can buy them for less than $3,000)
  2. They are easy to work on. (Parts are readily available, and many knowledgeable Jalops to help)
  3. They look great with both Hard & Soft tops. (Bird man fly in any weather)
  4. They are RWD (Proper)
  5. They are simple to modify. (V8 swap? Check. Super charger? Check.)
  6. They will get you laid and have sex*.
  7. They are the best car to Autocross. (Source: science)
  8. There are three, soon to be four generations of them, which makes finding the right one really easy. (Source: craigslist, ebay and wikipedia)
