Thanks for the input, everyone :) One of the things I really like about
this car is that it does have a bench seat. They seem to be very rare
to find, and I would really like having one in a car.
I don't understand how a 2.8 liter six-cylinder could be getting such
fantastic mileage, even with a 3-speed transmission! The ratios just
must be very far apart, I guess. Does it have overdrive?
Acceleration for me isn't really a problem; I don't step out very
often, if at all. True, the gearshift would be in the way a bit of the
other passengers, but no worse off than a floor shift in a pickup, I'd
presume. There is ample leg room in both the front and rear, what a
What other cars had this engine, the 2.8L V6, which were manual shift?
Who knows, maybe if I purchase this one, then down the line I might be
able to convert it to stickshift ... hmm ...
