It assaults his/her wallet at the gas station, and it also assaults the environment with it's emissions.

The term "Urban Assault Vehicle" comes from the the movie "Stripes" with Bill Murray. It referred to a converted GMC motor home used as an "Urban Assault Vehicle" used by the Army in communist eastern Europe. This was fictional, of course.

What is it with this "dolt" crap?
Seems like every import lover who doesn't like or appreciate driving some big old rear wheel drive Detroit classics from the 70s feels compelled to describe people who do with this asinine term.
No one is going to assault anything, it was just a joke... get with the program.
And it's not any uglier than anything than the imports or domestics made today. Learn to appreciate the classics, because I'm sure no one ever says, will you look at that beautiful Prius... LOL!!!!

I can't argue with you on the first part of your comment... LOL!!! As for the second part, according to the air standards set by the EPA for the year this car was made, it had no emission problems whatsoever. It passed every time it went through NJ inspections. So I don't know where you got that "assault on the environment" from. But everyone is entitled to their opinion, and thank you for yours.

If it weren't a 4 door it would be a very interesting car show car. Or a parade car. Might even win a trophy! I wouldn't do a real costly restoration even then. With very few exceptions I always pass on cars with too many doors. Maybe wait 6 months or longer and save up. If you want cheap and later sell cheap, you might disagree.
