I had no choice. It was an upgrade from a Sunbird.

The Probe I was driving (sharing with my brother) was making sounds like a sewing machine and my brother needed me to co-sign a car loan for him, which might have messed up my chances of getting a car loan I needed later...so we bought our vehicles at the same time. I was in a hurry and I wanted something small, simple, relatively inexpensive, and with a standard transmission...The Bomba was on the lot and had only 7,000 miles on it...

I was tired of driving my pickup truck and wanted a sporty car and my son saw this one and the price was right. It had everything I was looking for. Now I only use my truck to pull my camper.
