1975 Dodge Dart Custom 225 Slant 6 from North America
4 doors of comfort and speed
Transmission slips and leaks profusely.
Head gasket cracked after over-heating.
Tires were dry rotted.
The carpet was replaced with yellow house carpet by the previous owner... Ugh.
I love this car. It has some issues (it sat in a field with two goats for almost six years) but it is still fun to drive. The slant 6 is ultra smooth and I love the looks I get just for driving to work.
I need to rebuild the transmission because the gentleman who owned it before me took horrible care of it.
My only complaint is that the car is butterscotch yellow. I've never been a fan of yellow. But I had to have the car when I saw it in the field. It has one of those "it's so ugly it's cute" effects on me. I paid $300 for it and drove it home after replacing the ignition module. She's been my faithful ride to work ever since.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The writer lf the above comment needs to get familiar with something called Dexron III ATF, and the transmission dipstick on his car.
The latter probably shows he has run out of the former.

One of the comments above includes a wonderful story about the grandma-thing... I also own a Dodge Dart. I bought it this year (2004) and had only ran 43000 (...).. I soon realized that the counter isn't going further than 99.999.. Too bad, I was still going to buy it..
