Well this is what i drive every day while i still can't afford to drive the bonne. 1986 Mazda 626. My boss owns this car and lets me drive it free besides the gas i put in it. Nothin fancy to look at but it gets around and the mileage is unbelievable.
Outside shot, it'* a little banged up (sorry about the weird burn mark on the photo, my phone doesn't like super bright light).
Basic interior, no power ANYTHING, 5-speed tranny. But i put my pioneer HU in it
In case you can't tell, that'* 208,971 miles on original everything (except the clutch i believe).
And the money shot: 2.0 SOHC MPI engine. Puts out a whopping 93 HP @ 5k RPM and 115 lb/ft at 2500 RPM. <<<< Not too bad for a little 4 banger. I think the cubes help a little on that one.
Here'* the pops cruiser. 1996 Olds Ciera. We got it from an older lady that drove it hardly at all. Purchased with 36000 miles on it in July of 2004. She'd just had the engine replaced (about 6k previous) because of the infamous intake leak. Wasn't caught in time
But we picked it up for $4500 and havn't looked back. Oh and it had a $450 set of Michelin MX4'* on it that were just installed.
