The problem is: I love it!!


The car was already old and not so perfect when I bought it, I'm in the process of restoring it.

The transmission is a bit faulty, the reverse is a pain.

The engine is beautiful.

The electrical bits are bad, interior light doesn't work, back lights are faulty.

General Comments:

All in all, a cute car.

I still need to fix it, it hasn't given me any new trouble - only the things already there - yet.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
