It's doable and not entirely unpleasant, but just not preferable... which I guess depending on how you look at it could be a good attribute to have in a car. I however would like at least to have a comfortable ride where I can hear another person talking well if I do use a car. I've been driving it "normal" to get a good mileage baseline, but I also haven't done the best documentation job due to the lessened priority of cars. I'll sell it to anyone for $1500 btw. I put a lot of work into it and the body is VERY clean. I'm readying myself for a reduction in projects and a new chapter of life. I still love hypermiling and fuel economy competitions, but I've rearranged my priorities as of late and have gotten far more into food and started a blog. Keep on truckin' y'all.
