Summary:

Creates real joy every time you start it!

Faults:

Brake cylinders.

Suspension rubbers.

Fuel pump.

Speedo and cable.

Some more small items, but nothing big.

General Comments:

All-time classic. Never let me down, although I've owned the car since 1983 and it never had been restored, it looks quite nice.

Absolutely rock-solid and reliable, real fun to own and drive.

Brakes on the weak side, but I think this is a known issue.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
