I had a 1975 Plymouth Scamp, it was blue with a white vinyl roof. 318 v8 engine. It was 7 yrs old when I bought it, and I had it for about 3 years.
It has some minor problems, but over all it was an awesome car, very fast, and very tough, I had many offers from people to buy it once they found out it had the bigger engine, but I never sold it... It went to scrap yard heaven.... MISS IT!!
I gave my daughter at 7 years old a K car for field driving... she had to stand up on the seat to look behind before backing up. She is 19 now, and can drift a car sideways as long as you like today with her is300 Lexus (off road on the race track). I don't worry about her on road driving today, as she understands vehicle dynamics better than most at her age.
