The other day when I was going to look at a new car (looking for an
econo-box) I saw a Ford that was about the size of a Geo Metro (maybe
smaller). What kind of car is this and what kind of mileage does it get?
Looked like it would be pretty cool for what I was looking for, and I could
stay with Ford.
I suppose it's a moot point now, as I already got a new car. It's an '86
Honda Prelude 5 speed with dual carbs and I believe the 1.8 liter engine.
It's not exactly the super high mileage car I was hoping for, but it should
be relatively quick and will get roughly 30 MPG on the highway. Cost me
$300, so I couldn't resist as it seems to be in quite good condition. It'll
be a fun little daily driver and I'll still have my '68 for summer cruising.
Surely I can get at least $300 for my '67 so this will turn out well. I
guess I'll find out soon enough what people are willing to pay for it. I
figure I'll ask $750 obo and see what happens. I'll be happy to get $500. It
would make a good daily driver or first car for someone who already has some
skill with cars and wants to learn more or wants a project. It would also
make a good parts car, and that's probably what it will end up as sooner or
later. Some day I will get another '67 Galaxie, one in better condition that
is a solid foundation for the skills I have. For now I'll enjoy my last few
days driving my first car. It definitely was cool to have my favorite kind
of car for my first car. :)
