1989 Mazda 323

Our 1989 Mazda 323 was purchased for $1500 many years ago. About 2 winters ago, suffered from a perfect storm of badness. Broken temp gauge + blowing a coolant hose, lead to being stranded on the side of the road at 2 am, in 4 degree weather with a blown engine. A $60 junk yard motor and a year of procrastinating put us back on the road. I'm now commuting in this beauty over 100 miles / day at 33 mpg. The car has just over 202K miles.
