Best $500 car ever?

I bought this for $519 and aside from the adjustable air ride, which has been replaced with coil springs, everything works! I almost wish it wasn't so nice, so I could use it as a LeMons car.

It even came with the stock stereo, tools and owner's manual. It's got 146k miles and the only downside is it has the shitty 3-speed automatic, but the red subaru in the background is going to donate its drivetrain to fix that.

I tried to explain to my friends and family how awesome this is, but no one seems to understand what could be good about a nearly 30 year old $500 car.
