It did get great gas mileage tho.
Yes to everything. I think I got it up to 80 mph once. It had A/C which worked. It was the hatchback/fast back. It looked sortof cool. Girls I dated _liked_ it. It actually had a sporty interior, bucket seats, etc. The cargo area could actually hold a lot of stuff!

I think the engine was a 1.6 and developed something like 65 hp. Very aerodynamic and could hold 70 mph reasonably well. And it drank gas like a camel drinks water. 40+ mpg, using a carb! And it didn't require a cat and ran on regular gas!

It was a Japanese VW bug!
