Yeah...if I'd had ANY body skills or tools, I might have saved her. The engine was good...but she's in good hands now! New owner has body skills!

140 hp, ouch frown image......no wonder I disliked these cars when they were new.

The body style is starting to grow on me now, but would definitely need to have something under the hood that provided a little more motivation.
