If 23 years old feels this good, I don't know how good she was when she rolled out of the dealership


Basically the suspension needs a rebuild, to be expected from a car this heavy at this age..

Starts rusting on rear fenders..

General Comments:

This car is one of a kind, I just love the way it sounds, drives, everything just seems to be perfect..

The engine is a high performer, responds nicely and the manual shifting is also smooth..

Mine has a mint interior, no cracks, no nothing whatsoever, just perfect..

Needs higher compression to give more response in the low end revs..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
