Diesel Diesel vehicles tend to be long lasting. We also wanted a flexible fuel source; with minimal modifications we could drive off waste vegetable oil if needed.

Manual Transmission If you know how to drive a manual car you probably agree with us when we say they are simpler. They are also lighter vehicles, their parts are less expensive to repair and easier to rebuild. Plus you can push start them if starter motor or battery dies.

They are darn cute
