Summary:

Hurricane on wheels..

Faults:

Due to an oil leak (caused by a worn rubber ring), the engine was re-built at 130.000 km.

A lot of rust work from 220.000 km and on and on...

General Comments:

Very hard to get spare parts at all these days in Denmark.

Fantastic car - underestimated - think about building this car with today's technology. A dream within a dream...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
