No manual transmission, it will still be a porky overweight car, and one of the most butt-ugly grills ever. As a formal owner when they were actually 'The ultimate driving machines" , it's just depressing to see what they've become.
I agree. I regret losing my 1974 2002 tii to a soccer mom on a cell phone after she hit me at a stoplight in 1997. The car was bullet proof, had a soul and was the most fun on 4 wheels till my acquiring my Honda S2000's. Miss it still.
