I've only owned my 03 NA Auto 140,000 mile Baja for a little over a year but it will leave the family only after I die! It has been the most fun, most reliable, most attention getting vehicle I've ever owned. I've owned faster, a '68 Dart GTS. I've owned more attention getting, '65 Ford 4 X 4 pickup so ugly it hurt your eyes. But I've never owned one more reliable or more fun!
