that's rigth... for one day, i get to drive a camira! haha i'm dreading it already... my car's getting serviced so i've got a loan car.
the reason i posted this is to say that i was amazed by two things:
1. how shocking the car itself is. i had a car which was in the same category (1985 ford telstar) and it was a whole class above this shitbox.
2. that thing's got a fair bit of power! it's an auto and you can almost get the front wheels spinning! weird!
My mate had a camira. man did he have HEAPS of probles with it. turfed it for a VN (lol not much better) but hasnt had asmany probs. They especially chew through CV joint rubbers, or maybe it's just the way he drove it?
