About

The Green Machine, as I’ve come to call it, has been a constant source of joy, aggravation, pain, suffering, elation and a drain of the wallet. But, the distance between Point A and Point B is never long enough for me, I can’t drive this car enough.

I often hesitate to have other people riding in the car, because, let’s face it, it’s not the most comfortable car to ride in and you would really notice this fact if you were used to riding in a much newer car. You are always sticking to the black vinyl seats, it’s usually very very warm in the car, the exhaust is loud, there are rattles, there is wind noise, especially on highway trips where the windows must be down in order to keep cool. Hope you don’t mind messy hair!

I personally don’t care about all that, it’s just part of the charm for me! I would drive my car any distance, i know it will get there, even if at 14mpg it will cost me everything I have in my wallet. Money well spent I say…
