Is it a bad choice to look into one of these as a first car. I really like these cars, and it would be awesome if I could get my hands on one. Will it be reliable? How do they drive? is it a bad choice as a first car? If so, any recommendations to similar cars or older cars like Datsuns that would be good? I really like these cars, and driving one would be awesome. Id probably use it on a day to day basis going to and from school, but will also be using it for long trips too. How will a car like this fare? Im tight on money too. As long as I can find one in good condition that runs fine for under about 7 grand, that would be a dream come true.
