Summary:

One of the very best classics

Faults:

Drive shafts replaced at 86000 miles.

General Comments:

It is very comfortable, and one can travel long distances every day. It has one of the best V8 sounds to go with it.

The first year I had the car, I drove nearly 42000 miles and that without any fault at all.

I can strongly recommend the Stag, if you are looking for a usable classic, and want to travel around Europe.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yes, but in all fairness you sold yours well over 20 years ago. Any of these that are still salvageable now, have either had much money spent on restoration, or are going to need it now. Definitely a Sunday Driver only kind of car these days.
