Summary:

The best 80's build ford of all time

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with this car, it was my fault not the cars. Other than the drivers heated seat needed a little wiring help.

General Comments:

This is on the list of best made 80's cars ever produced. I have never driven a car with such great handling and even better acceleration. If you have never owned a turbo car this is my recommendation for you.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
