A look back on the cars I've driven on a regular basis...
-The Mirage had the 4G15 Orion engine, good for 92hp, which was enough since the car just weighed a hair over 2000 lbs. The car served me unbelievably well for almost 3 years, and still had the best air-conditioning system I've ever used in a car. Not bad for a car originally costing me $1095, and requiring very little in way of repairs and maintenance throughout the time of my owning it. Having that Mirage gave me a huge amount of respect for lightweight vehicles, and also for Japanese cars in general.
-The 1983 Mercury "Crapi" was just that... utter crap. That unreliable piece of shit drained my bank account for the one year that it lasted... and it had possibly the worst engine I have ever personally experienced. A 4-cylinder engine that required premium fuel, delivered 17mpg, but only produced 88 hp... Thank God the car only weighed 2600 lbs, or else it wouldn't have moved at all. It did handle well, I admit, but that was mainly due to some really nice Pirelli tires I got for it.
-The purple Cavalier wagon of doom and the Honda Rebel are from what seems now to be another lifetime ago... living in Pennsylvania with my father, commuting to Penn State Abington... the Cavalier served me very well, and the Honda was daaaaamn fun. I miss the motorcycle... the Cavalier... nnnot so much.
-The Buick.... not much to say about that... other than I miss my grandfather.
