I've always loved big cars and have never owned a small one. (I'm 6 foot 3 with a 36 inch inseam. Gotta have a big car.) Of all the monsters I've owned, older and newer, this has been my favorite. A combination of comfort, style, handling, and operating costs (Gas mileage is excellent for a boat!) make it a real keeper. Add the fact that you don't see one very often makes it even better. I can always find my car in the parking lot.
She ain't the quickest thing on the road, but when you do call the engine room, she lifts up her skirt and hustles like mad. I've even spun the rear tires a few times at lights when young punks would "rev" their engine at me and laugh. Mostly I see startled expressions in the rear view mirror.
And the room is quite nice and comes in handy. I work as a maintenance man, and every other maintenance man I know owns a van or truck. I've never had anything not fit in, or on top of this 'ol gal. The trunk just swallows toilets whole, doors fit in the back with the windows down, and plywood ties down nicely on the roof.
And the handling is just great for a big car. I've had some that were a bit smoother, some that took corners a bit better or faster, and some where the steering felt a bit better, but never one that did it all in one package as well as this one.
I've had a few problems, and just recently a head gasket went. She goes in the shop in a few days and it's gonna cost me $1,200US, but I consider it money well spent. I never had the A/C fixed, (And I live in Florida!) and I just passed the heater core to stop the leak, but I'm not gonna wreck her engine running around with a bad head gasket. I think this is gonna be my last car.
