My 1980 Plymouth Horizon TC3

Well I finally decided to get pics of my Horizon. I have been driving this since May, but I finally decided to get some pics today. It is a 1980 Plymouth Horizon TC3 with a 1.7L VW engine and a 4 speed manual. My dad bought it brand new in 1980 as his first car and it was sitting next to our house for a couple years and my dad was gunna just bring it to the junkyard, but I decided to save it. Plus i got slightly over 39 mpg on the highway and get about 25 around town
