We bought it new in 96. It is our daily driver and has 80,000 miles on it. It has been the most reliable car we have every owned, and I have been driving since 1960.

Only real problem was in Feb 2010 when there was an ignition switch short that toasted the ground wire and filled the car with smoke-an oh **** moment!


Bone stock, 5 speed manual

Factory Options

12 disk CD Changer, spoiler


Tinted windows are the only things we have added
