New toy?

Thinking about maybe taking a look at a new daily driver so I can save some miles and some $$$$ on fuel. Don't laugh to much.



Its cheap. ($900 obo) and is my favorite fuel.... Diesel! It just looks like something I can drive. Its a 84 Tempo with a 2.0 and 5 spd.They claim they get 30 city and 45 hi-way. Anyone ever have one?

Thats awesome! That bumper is massive for that thing. If you are looking for cheap transportation there she is.

Pretty soon you will be on here asking what size turbo, how to turn up the pump, ect... I'm sure its slow.
