: Small town here in Ohio.
I am even more surprised, given the amount of salt I would
expect it to have been exposed to.
: It is in pretty decent shape. Much better than the newer(1990's) cars
: in the same price range. Not much rust even. Runs great. Drove it well
: over 100 miles to bring it home, not a single issue.
I have heard idiots paying $5k for a GEO Metro on ebay. So,
I am not surprised it was less expensive than newer alternatives.
I guess just getting into it any not finding a "rubber floorboard"
would have to be considered a major accomplishment.
: There is actually a web based forum,
that the seller
: clued me into. It is amazing what some people are doing with these
I have never been a Ford fan, but I do have to acknowledge
that Ford never had the small car antagonism that GM continues
to exhibit. And, if you could replace that pathetic piece of
late 70's smog choked, casterated 4 banger with something better,
it would probably be a fairly decent car. And, probably get better
milage to boot. Of course, my main problem with Ford is (was?)
their "marshmellow" suspension, so tightening that up that would
be a necessity. And, probably the steering as well. :-)
