PHOTO IS NOT MY ORIGINAL, I DIDN’T HAVE IT LONG ENOUGH TO TAKE ANY.
All original info such as VIN, etc. is long lost.
Christ I want to forget this purchase. Bright fucking yellow with grey interior. I did not have this vehicle long!

After I had sold the Miata to afford and conform to the New York lifestyle, I needed a car, and found this thing attractive at a local dealership because it was cheap, had a manual transmission and looked somewhat modern. I guess.

It killed itself one night driving to the parent’s on the Turnpike. The all-aluminum engine seized up because the thermostat failed. The garage (I had AAA so it was towed to a AAA place) had a noob work on it. It sat too long with anti-freeze in the engine block, killing it. As I only had liability on it, I got fucked.

I remember this car being a slouch when turning, definitely not expected from something like this. The manual shifter made a squeak noise when going up into 3rd. it had no performance to speak of. But my god, did people compliment this thing! I specifically remember getting one night in the new ride with a fresh sales sticker in the window; a dude at a toll-booth off the turnpike complimented on the new fly ride, followed by a female in another toll-booth at the Philly bridge. I was banging with my 46″ raver jeans, yo!

It still sucked.
