It'* a day-to-day thing with me.

I love driving it, because even the L27 has enough juice to put a smile on my face when I hammer it from a rolling start.

I hate repairing it, because, since I bought it in July, I've replaced the fuel lines twice, the entire brake system once (lines, front calipers and rear drums), and I thought I was going to have to replace the tranny too, but it turns out that someone had the spark-plugs gapped out to .075~.080.... when they were supposed to be at .060!!!!!!!

When it works, it'* awesome. The rest of the time, I honestly regret buying it.

I like my car a lot.

Im planning to hold onto it for a long time. If I can get 0-60 in about 6.5 or less I'll love this car.

Right now I like it enough to clean it once a week, make sure the interior is clean and have money aside to fix it if it breaks.

I need to put more mods.

I am very content with my car! It handles great, rides like a dream, turns heads and hasn't given me nowhere near the problems that a certain man has given me

Right now she is in the shop getting her a/c fixed. I had it fixed last year but I let a moron fix it and he did shoddy work. It shouldn't take too much to fix her (I hope).

Comfy, Smooth Riding (like sitting on a couch especially on the highway) and tons of low and mid range power! Just wish it was a little smaller...I guess my perfect fit would be a Grand Prix
