It's so refreshing to hear people discussing, well kinda, a Corolla without mentioning the terms anodyne, Novocain, bread-box, snoresville or any other term discussing how "people who like cars/driving wouldn't be caught dead in one." I frequent various sites where people are "enthusiasts" and the only cars worthy of appreciation are, in no particular order, a V8, RWD, Manual (well that one's a given over here
), 500+hp, and apparently a wagon, or some extremely rare exotic that normal people can't afford, oh and politics get brought up all the time. Sometimes it's retch-worthy. I only frequent them because it's nice to break up the days at work. EDIT: I only go out to these sites on my brakes and lunches.
Long live the inexpensive cars that can be beaten to snot without wincing. My brother has a 94 Corolla where maintenance is kind of, well a lot, lacking, with 220k and it still runs with little complaint. It has issues that you would expect from a 17 year old car, but is not the worse for wear.
