A nice car that is fairly quick


Exhaust had rusted out so I straight piped it, and put a boom tube off a truck on it. That was probably the best thing that I did - it sounds mean.

The seats are wearing out.

Carburetor needed adjustments.

General Comments:

I love my car, I work on it almost every day. It's been the most reliable car that I have ever owned. The only thing bad about it is that everyone else must be jealous, because people and deer like to run into me.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
