Frame rusted through on mine at 120k. That car cost a fortune to keep and was a POS from the day it
rolled. At 10 years it was worth $800 in running condition. It handled worse in the snow than the
1968 Dodge Adventurer I drove in high school. Volvo...

He probably thinks I should throw away my Suntour Freewheels and 27" wheels, too! (I'm not selling
my Morris Minor, either.) I guess I'm one of the few, the proud, the retrogrouches!
