Sticking up for K-Cars (WOT)

I'll never drive a K-car, I'd sooner pick up a date in a shopping cart, but
I must relate this:
My Ultra-Hippie Aunt has had a silver K-Car since it was new in the
mid-80's. This car has been through over 10 Edmonton, Canada winters and now
lives in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia where it serves as
fire-road taxi between her remote cabin and the nearest town, 30 miles away.
I doubt it's ever had an oil change, much less any other scheduled
maintenance. With over 400K (kilos) on the clock, it seems to run perfectly,
as I saw to my amazement when the dust-caked beast of burden made a recent
trip down to visit us in Portland. Just so you know there's an exception to
every rule!
