I absolutely adore this car. It was given to me by my Grandfather 2 years before he passed away and therefore holds a lot of sentimental value to me.
This car has seen me through good times and bad and has always been there for me.
It spits and sputters sometimes when she is started, but she always warms to a gentle word and keeps on going and going and going.
This car has made Mechanics jaws drop as they have gone to inspect her thinking to find a lot of rust and wear and tear, and each time she has rewarded them with a gleam in her eye and a glowing report.
I came close to selling her once as I was financially down and could not afford to keep repairing/maintaining her. However, my other car was in a car accident and I desperately needed transportation as my car is my work. The little beast came through for me, choking her way around the city for 6 hours at night doing deliveries then coming to a quiet rest at home every morning.
She was recently in the shop to have her exhaust system overhauled and once again, the mechanic was highly impressed.
I would not part with this car for all the gold in the world. Deciding to keep her was the best decision I have ever made. She is my beast, my best friend and my sunny sky on a cloudy day.
I would recommend this car to anyone who has a heart. She has yet to disappoint me. I love you beast!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
