  • how much harder can it get

    I'm to sum up my interest in Festivas and fixing and driving them in one hundred words or less... can't think of how to limit it to that number of characters.

          ^ there you go. Btw is this self inflicted or mandated by an outside party?

            the idea to do Festivas was self inflicted because of a request by an outside party asking what I do for pleasure in my spare time... it hit me.... Festivas..... and it has to be within 100 words

              The Festiva is a hobby, but also a lifestyle. With excellent fuel economy, automotive personality, and loyalty amongst owners, it represents the pinnacle of compact automotive culture. Modifications, repairs, and maintenance are all a pleasure in the lives of Festiva owners, all of whom interact well all across the continent as well as the world. Though not quite a cult following, the Festiva certainly has its fans as well as critics, but owning a Festiva is a very unique, rewarding, and enjoyable opportunity all in one very convenient package. Great handling, easy parking, and roomy space make the Festiva loved.

                ^^^ Could easily be adopted as the official "mission statement" for ff.com.
                Very well stated.

                  The festiva makes me grin every time I get in one. It can be modified or not, they are the big kids road legal go kart. You know even grown ups want to drive go karts to work.

                      Me too. I've had a lot of cars over the years but only a few that made me smile as I walked toward the car from a distance. 56 Golden Hawk, 65 Mustang, 79 RX7, ALFA GTV6, and the Festiva. Every time.

                        An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.

                          No, That's a 57. Mine was 56 w 352 cu.in engine. Yellow & white.
                          The car was in excellent condition when I sold it to a neighbor. New owner had it from Friday at 5 o'clock until Sunday morning about 2 am. A snoot full of Jack & coke blurred his judgment. He walked home.
