If God could drive, he would be behind the wheel of a Corona


Not too much, except one of my mates accidently wrapped it around a tree. My love for the car was strong though, and it's body was built over again, with some mechanical repairs as well.

General Comments:

The car handles exceptionally well on dirt.

It has no problem getting to 140 on a dirt road.

Like a rocket on wheels.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Maybe it's just me, but I think God could probably do better than a 27 year old Toyota.

You know, being omniscient and all.
