Jan 1993-December 2000
Ordinarily, this would land in the hall of boring cars, but it took 90,000 miles of abuse, survived 2 3 crashes, never needed a brake job and got 30 mpg.

Despite $1.30 to 1.40 for a gallon of gas and astronomical insurance rates… Some of these cars are used solely for transportation to work or school. Other common uses are for mobile parties and for activities prohibited by a recent Supreme Court decision. One individual’s “beast,” as he called it, looked like a combination para-military mobile command post (replete with numerous clubs, a Fuzzbuster, and a notorious spotlight), and a mobile party store. Such blatantly obscene law-ignoring vehicles were, fortunately, very, very rare…
