I bought mine just before I was 18 back in 1997.

Drove the wheels off it for a good 9 months, no breakages, only developed a diff whine. Traded it in on a 25k ~3yr old VS 5ltr 5speed exec, fe2, srs, irs. Drove that hard and within 6months broke the gearbox, diff and IRS subframe. Did a few mods cam, ecu etc sold it as it was still slow and required BIG $$ to get it going hard + the diff and gearbox started to play up again. Biggest money pit that VS. VL was excellent.

I was 23, I'm kind of glad I didn't get it when I was younger, I might have killed myself in it.
