A few days ago, I purchased my Aunt and Uncle's blue 1989 Ford Tempo that they owned for a number of years for only $400. It only has 49,569 miles on it, but will need some work. I really like this car and I hope to own it for a while or sell it if I get an appealing offer.

I have decided to keep the 1989 Ford Tempo I purchased from my Aunt and Uncle. It saved my life a few weeks ago when the brakes went out and I backed into a fence. The fence post bent while the back end of my car showed no damages, just a few light scratches. Ever since I bought the car, it has been stalling quite frequently. I poured STP Jet Fuel into the gas tank to clean it out and she seems to be running better. Even the engine is no longer smoking. The car may have 49,569 miles on it, but it has some rust on it and has been in a few fender benders even before I bought the car. It's a nice little car and I'd hate to part with it mainly because of it's rarity and it's built like Fort Knox! When I was able to safely drive the car, that 4 Cylinder Engine goes fast! There has even been talk about pimping it up after the brakes get fixed and getting the rust spots fiberglassed. Now I know what you're thinking, but even people are pimping up their Ford Focuses.

Ford did good with this one. I bought my Tempo in 2004 for 700.00 and 186000kms... I now have 210000 and really haven't had too many problems with it. Tempos have guts, I have great acceleration and she can go 130 and not even shake! Best of all, no paint peeling like mentioned above.

I'm a teen, no license, or earners, and bought my Ford Tempo in advance, plan on putting chrome, and a wing on it :)
