Your question regarding reliability, not bad. These cars are getting up in age but with proper care, they can last forever. Deferred maintenance is the downfall of most of them (that didn't leave the road tail-end first). Can they be driven regularly with any degree of civility? Yes. Will you? It's tempting. All those wonderful noises, honk, snort, spool, decel - whooshhh! You just gotta sample it on occasion. Think of it as 80 to 300+ HP in one atmosphere. 'kind of Jekyl & Hyde-ish. Rumor has it they get pretty good gas mileage if you stay off the boost. I can assure you I'll never know.
