Had an '88 that I sold to an inmate not long ago. I miss that car
Got to many caving expeditions using it, showed my kids how to drive a stick shift in it, showed them how (not) to drive on slick, icy roads with it
, took it on long road trips, short road trips, dirt trips, slow trips, fast trips, and up mountains
Never left me stranded
I'll bet the piece of cardboard from the box the thermostat came in is still holding a good seal on the housing...
