I just got this as a commuter car for $450. It needs some TLC though. I drive just over 100 (round trip) freeway miles a day to get to work. I pick up a carpool buddy about a quarter of the way (he pays for most of the gas and the extra weight doesn't appear to affect MPG much).
Never named cars before. Since I'm actually working on this one (blood, sweat, tears) I've become attached. It's name shall be-
