You might also want to ask around in the "Survival" forum on this site. These older, non-computerized vehicles are also of interest to us preppers for the ability to better resist EMP attacks. Good luck finding what you're looking for.

Your periodic light flashing buzzer dinging could be a result of ground wires ...Like you have said there is a lot of plastic and if you have a piece of electronic attached to it it requires a ground ...I would look at that ...as far as non computer cars well you got to go back pre 90s I would think ..A VW diesel wagon would be my choice , mid 80s ...good luck ..peace

You actually might find a car club for that, and you could just tell them what its doing and within an hour you might have 2 or 3 ppl telling you a few things you can do yourself or at least a direction. Ive got a pull-a-part junkyard here i was at a few days ago and i saw 3 of them and only on the front row so parts are plentiful out there.
Well, I have three kids and a dog that I like to carry around, so I'd prefer a bigger end. Yeah, I was also thinking the Nomad would have poor gas mileage, but it looks good anyway!
Yeah the Nomad is what i was thinking of, but with older cars like that fuel economy might be a factor for you. They make these little things that are called "hatchbacks" but they are really just kidding themselves what the are, are mini-station wagons
Hatchbacks look like `86 Ford Mustangs
Srry there are certain vehicles that in my circle of gearheads and grease munkies we like to make fun of, and well the two you posted in the OP would be two that we`d lay it on kindof thick but its all in good fun. My comment would be "WTH would you want a thing like that unless you`re little 80 year old woman" ,and a good comeback would be "Well at least i dont have to fill it up everytime i back down the driveway".

So many different ways you can go.
First find a site of the car of your choice with others who share your feelings of the same car, you will get a ton of infomation and advice.
From there you will need a repair manual,lots of money , lots of time and an another car to drive.
good luck !
