I wanted to like this car, but it’s no Trans Am.

Babied, would it get 7 mpg? Try 1 city / 2 highway. There are no seat belts.

There are some nobs but nothing works. The cabin smells of half-burnt gasoline. And unburnt gasoline. Also, dust.

The engine is loud and annoying.

Air conditioning is basically a hole in the floor. Ford’s 390 block was borrowed from their pickup line and you can tell. All the wheels do is spin, spin, spin. It should have low profile tires. The tires get very hot. Everything gets very hot. The exterior is made out of metal. Very wasteful.

The brakes do not work like you think they would. This car has three gears but only tries to use one or two.

Seven people can fit comfortably outside the vehicle.

251 were made. Obvious why.
