I owned one of those back when, a '75 I believe? Bought it for $31.71, all I had in my pockets at the garage sale I stopped at on my bicycle! It was not for sale, tabs 2 yrs out of date, homeowner said it had been his daughters, she went to school out east where people don't own cars, been sitting since, would not start. Had 4 brand new tires on it bought by Dad, he thought no one would want it, asked for key, idiot lights came on, but starter barely turned, he was done with "these furrin cars" I asked if he had title, he did, I asked if he had mower gas, noting a 1/2 full tank on gauge, and the lights not fading on dash...asked what he wanted, he said what have you got? Dumped out what I had on the dining room table he was selling, he said deal, get it out of here! Want me to call you a tow truck? I just laughed, poured a little mower gas into carb, left ignition on and rolled it down his driveway, put in 2nd and dumped clutch, it popped right off in an enormous cloud of blue smoke, but held an idle, parked it thanked him and put my bike in the hatch, sans front wheel and drove it home, drove the crap out of it for 2 yrs until the rust got it, sold it to a cook at my job who drove it another 3 yrs until the brakes were gone, an amazing bit of engineering that little bomber! :) Seeing that ad sure takes my old ass back! Thanks for posting it!
