"I would not hesitate to drive it any distance as it gets 17 mpg on the highway and runs a cool 170 degrees idling all day long in traffic. It runs great and starts on the first crank. I am seriously thinking about taking it down the track this summer. Once a year I put it on the rack, clean and detail the undercarriage, cruise, and hit the shows. It always draws a big crowd, and I get a lot of enjoyment talking with people about it and their cars."
