It's purple in real life. But anyway... This beast has been in the family since it's birth in 1985. My grandma bought it new, and gave it to my dad in 87. My dad has kept it ever since. It's been mine for over two years, and I can't get enough of it. The 1.783L inline 4 cyl engine pumps out a crazy 89HP and 100 ft/lbs of torque. I've been meaning to fill it up the past few days. I go to the mobil and fill it up from empty with $21.50. Mind you, this is the mobil.. not the cheapest gas ($2.29/gal). I love it .
