This car will never die, just go to the junkyard to regroup
You know, I can't really knock the thing, but I hate Fords. I got it for free, because the guy couldn't get it running. Well, I had a spare battery laying around, and wouldn't you know it? He was no rocket scientist. I've done minor things to it, such as, Install new lift gate struts, and clutch, pressure plate, & throw out bearing. Not bad for 220,000 miles? The body is terribly rotten. But, hey? The price was right. I put $350, and 80k miles on it.
The car has no pick up, but it was free.
I hate the gear box, second to third is always an adventure, but it was free.
It is a Ford, but it was free.
I despise mustangs, but... you know the rest.
Turn the key, fuel it every couple of weeks, do the preventative maintenance, and drive it until the wheels fall off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
