Your Ultimate Lemon Car

Bad Car
So what was your lemon car? For me it was a 1978 Ford Pinto Station Wagon. Hubby and I bought it brand new and had nothing but trouble. Fortunately, my dad was a mechanic and was able to keep it running until I learned to drive a stick. I'm pretty sure this was the car that inspired The Car Guys radio show.

In 1983 we traded it in for a new 1983 Nissan Sentra, which was the best car EVER! The only thing I didn't like about it was the color (hubby called it chicken poop yellow, but he didn't say "poop.") 

Our 1983 Sentra looked exactly like this:

Good Car

The worst car we ever had was an Astra, whatever that is. A green station wagon that went through two motors and then still died. Horrible car. We only paid $500 for it; we were so poor at the time and it just kept breaking down.

Belle: I've never heard of an Astra but it sounds horrible! At least it was a used car and you probably expected trouble. Ours was brand excuse. Oh well. Live and learn. We never bought a Ford again.
