Oh man I had one of those way back in the early-mid 90's. I think it was an '83. If I knew then what I know now I'd have kept it. 0-60 in 3 days just didn't cut it when all your buddies are driving around in hot rods. It was sold after the 3rd set of glow plugs. That thing ate glow plugs like candy....especially in winter when you really needed them.
