    It's not perfect. Far from it. but what can you expect for $500 and the quintessential beater with a heater?

    :werd: but we needed a second car. It runs great, shifts great, and i've been lusting after a manual trans for years. I can either drive this thing into the ground, or try and fix it up. Engine leaks oil a bit, but looks like it just needs a valve cover gasket. Biggest issue with it is body rust, and then some interior issues, Pass-window motor appears to be disconnected (i can hear it running, but the window will not go up or down.) I need a new head unit and speakers. Drivers seatbelt doesn't retract nor extend, but it's out far enough to fit me perfectly. It's got issues, but most things are shit i can fix.

    So many other cars that I would rather have for $500 than that one.

    And nearly all of them can be had with a manual transmission.
