Fun camera, I had a couple like that, bad girl club uncensored 'em a lot during the '80s. The auto exposure mechanism was surprisingly accurate even polaroid long nighttime exposures.

You might consider keeping swiinger to modify for pinhole use. I kept film for just such a project, but never got around to it and finally threw away the camera a few years ago. Of no use whatsoever except for landfill, unless it has sentimental value for you.
