A real practical classic
Blown head gasket trying to get the most out of the engine!
Vast range of electrical problems due to poor restoration in the electrics by previous owners. Lots of cheap work.
Car was very slow in traffic, especially uphills it kept a lot of traffic behind.
I am fitting the popular Fiat Twin Cam and using disks upfront to keep up with modern traffic and also trash some of it!
The car has a lot of character. I wonder how a car like the mini and beetle kept on production and the Minor didn't - I prefer driving it more than the other modern car I own.
The interior is very simple and that attracts me a lot - no plastic stuff, fearing it will break in your hands on first touch.
People love it, wherever I go people are asking about it. For old people it brings old memories and to youths it looks funky.
I am just 19 years old and I think with little mods and a nice color the car is cool enough!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
