A good, fast shotgun

Temperature keeps rising.

General Comments:

This car is fast and very rare to see in Australia, it turns more heads than my old race Golf, it's great.

The seats could do with replacing, harnesses, half cage, few engine mods, wide body stance, and no interior, sweet mate, the French do it sick-full.

If anyone knows a super-charger or turbo kit for the AX, email me at

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Never had one, but expensive next to the Pulsar 2.0 L from the same era.
