"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... it's old and crusty, like I hope to be one day. It doesn't look fast, it doesn't go fast, but it brings a smile to my face within just a few minutes of driving. I always wanted one as a kid and my son also wanted one for himself (pictured). It's a car-history icon that was in production with only small changes for almost 30 years."
