I love 'em.

When I had my 88" Series III, top speed about 68 mph on a good day, I quickly found that there was nothing wrong with being slightly slower than everyone else while in a vehicle with no airbag, drum brakes, iffy seatbelts and a softtop.

Driving in 115F (46 C) in a Series III was always fun too!

I miss everything about that vehicle except working on it all the time.
