I'm lookin for a clean Tempo/Topaz 2 door auto, preferably in the Vancouver area. Will drive a couple hours to check it out. Email me or phone @ (604)430-9508

re: tempo wanted

just curious homey, why would you want an auto? i know they aren't really that good for much...only three gears and hard on gas on the highway because of only three gears....plus I went through three of them when I had my gold 86 four door!!......I didn't find them to reliable :)

Why?!!

It's not for me actually. I agree with you there, personally I don't think I'll ever own an automatic anything, no matter how old I am or how many kids I've got! Anywho, it's for my girlfriend. She wants to sell her '90 Celebrity that her dad gave her and buy a car like mine, only an auto. By the way, I've heard that the '92+ auto cars have a more reliable tranny than the earlier ones. I know that if she goes with an earlier auto, I'm gonna have to scrutinize the transmission like a bastard, but oh well. She'll probly only own it for a few years anyways. And if the tranny dies, I'll score a used one.. what can you do right? Oh and by the way, a 5 spd. is out of the picture. Believe me, I've tried ;-)
