  I have come to the conclusion,that I will need to replace my current tow vehicle(too small!) I am seeing a lot of Saturns pushing those ole homes up the road,and wonder if they are worthwhile. I found a 1995 SW-2 Locally  for $2500.00 ,with 83,000 miles.
 Does these things do the trick? I have too many vehicles now to buy anything of any value,but I still want something to serve the pupose!

I bought a 95 SW-2 5 speed new and towed it for a lot of miles with good satisfaction. Good fuel econnomy (over 40 mpg) only routine maintenance and maybe a little hard on front tires. It was easy to make the front tires chirp if I popped the clutch. I made one round trip of 6000 miles with the car and it was no Cadillac but not too bad.

I was told that when it is retired, you sell it to a plastic recycling company to made into fence posts then you can "Drive it into the ground"!
