    It was the classic hand me down car, from affluent suburban parents to teenage children, in my neck of the woods
    (greater Washington DC).

    I loved this car, but sold it. I'd love to find another one here in Iowa -- I'd drive it daily.

    They were considered the "spacious stationwagon with a turbo". I don't know about you all but stories came out of these cars. 16 was a great year for me. My dad and I were doing more drivers ed. It was my turn to drive to Iowa. We're in Montana just finished getting some gas if I recall,My grandma is in the back asleep(her car)... my dad goes quietly "you're gonna make a left turn, onto the freeway ramp and you're gonna put the petal on the floor" well the next stop was a...shorter one. :D:wacky:

    These cars typically have good backstories! And if not, we'll circle the campfire and create one that fits, right?

    Looks like a good trailer hitch. Could you load both car and trailer?

    It *can* be done, but there's a high chance the load would be too much for the 30yo engine + tranny. I'd rather make a few more trips or involve the BIL and his truck.

    I Love it!

    I transported a full grown Ram sheep in the back of a Ford Focus once, which is quite the story in itself.
