Yes Mike except for one thing: When I got married 23 years ago my bride came
car payment and a 1981 Toyota Corolla DLX Sedan with the 3TC and a 5 speed.
She and the car are both still here, and while she has aged far better and
than the car, they both still get up and go every morning.
I tell people I would sell it, but for two things, 1 I can't get any thing for
and 2 it still starts everytime I turn the key.
And the head and pan have never been off.
Now I had an American car when I married her, and had a few more since, but
while I was convinced. I have Japanese cars now because I can get a reliable
300,000 miles from one, and I have never done that with an American made car,
though I service and maintain them the same.
So maybe that is why they charge more for them, you think?

Can't prove it by me I own a 1971 domestic small car, ten years older than
yours, that has 300K on the clock and it looks and runs just fine. Far from
being not worth much it is currently worth around three times what it cost
me new, to boot. ;)
