1983 Chevrolet Chevette 1.6 from North America
Worth every penny I paid for it
Brake master cylinder leaked internally, replaced with used parts.
Starter motor literally cracked in half, replaced with used parts $20.
I needed a cheap second vehicle and bought four Chevettes (1981-1984) for $100. "Frankenvette" was born two months later. It looked awful, but ran like a clock and served me well. I had to change the starter on the side of the road in -30 degree weather, that was really the only time she let me down. The steering linkage was pretty worn and made for some terrifying highway driving, I only tried it a couple times before relegating it to city only use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
