Over all this has been a good car. The V8 is underpowered, but very reliable.
After all these years everything still works, the power leather seats (still in good condition), the power windows, air, cruise, not bad for North American.
I have used it to tow my boat which weighs as much as the car. Without a locking differential it has trouble getting up the boat ramp. New sticky tires work best here.
It's an easy car to work on and the parts are cheap. I'm no mechanic, but have done brakes and rotor twice, replaced the water pump, the fuel pump, the carburetor, gas lines, ignition coil, voltage regulator and all the regular maintenence. The body is another matter. In Southern Ontario salt is used on the roads in winter. This has caused a great deal of rust. This vehicle has salt cancer bad! Regardless, it will be tough to send this old friend to the grave yard. Would I buy another one... you bet.
