This is the car that I learned to drive in, & then drove for 2 years until I bought The Audi. I had lot's of fun with this car & it took a real beating, including hitting a deer. This is the car that was used for my first off-roading adventures, & the car that I figured out how to do reverse donuts in. For the entire time I used this car, it had bad struts & tons of slop in the steering, my Dad finally replaced them (actually he just bought them & I did the work) during the summer of '95, just in time for the block to crack in September '95 at 222,000 miles. The car then sat for a year & a half before donating many parts to The Rabbit.
