It had a 4-speed automatic gearbox coupled to a gutless 4-cylinder engine that made exceeding the speed limit out of the question.
It was cheap to insure; cheap on gas; excellent visibility and was very practical practical pronounced in a nasily voice.
Were I an insurance salesman, I would be in automotive nirvana. Yet, I can't think of anything of interest I did in this car other than commuting to work.
