This car wasn't taken care of when I got my license and got to use it, and it basically became my car. It only had semi-regular oil changes as maintenance over a span of 10 years. When I got my hands on it the transmission was dying, it was badly rusted through, the electrical system wasn't working properly (the right signal didn't work in the rain), the tires were soooo old they were cracking (finally replaced them), the shocks were pretty bad and the radiator leaked only when I was driving (so I never found the source). It still ran 12 000km and would've gone more if I could afford to buy it off my adoptive parents and pay for the insurance, but I couldn't afford it.
My little girl went to the wrecking yard :(
Of all the dozen or so different types of cars I've driven this was my favourite, no power ANYTHING, no amenities of any kind, and no show off gimmicky interior. If I could I would buy another Pony, even though I'm not likely to get one that would work so well.
