Excellent reliable car


Nothing out of the normal for a 20 year old car. The following wasn't working when I got it:

- Speedometer

- Windshield wipers

- Exhaust system

- One head of the engine was broken

- Klaxon.

The following are parts that I replaced or rebuilt:

- Distributor pick-up coil

- Major tune up

- Hoses

- Control module

- Clutch

- Brakes

- Speedometer

- Light here and there

- Changed the X-11 wheels for the Z24

- Engine was rebuilt

- Klaxon

- Windshield wipers module.

General Comments:

I'm very pleased with this car, it had never let me stranded anywhere and has alway taken me anywhere.

I had stored the car for a full year and it always starts at the first time.

Engine it's very powerful and feels like a real car.

Although paint and interiors are falling apart on me, someday I expect to rebuild them.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
