1976 Plymouth Volare Premier 318 from North America
A latter day status symbol in this day of Stupid Ugly Vehicles
The bad reputation aside, this wagon is reliable, inexpensive to operate and with my modifications, fast!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Now 2006 and this car still is a pleasure to drive. With upgrades like vented disks, 11" drums, A518 TF, rear sway bar, modern shocks and tires, the wagon is safe and reliable. The warmed up (built for torque) 360 gets 26 mpg on the highway and can show it's tail too many a a "performance" car half it's age and twice as expensive.
If you don't have the ability or desire to work on old cars then newer is the way to go.
For me, just not seeing myself coming down the road all the time is reason enough to drive it, not to mention the attention this Sky Blue wagon generates. Chrome bumpers, steel wheels and round headlights are COOL!
