Fantastic, loads of character
TOTAL brake failure reversing in car park resulting in parking manoeuvre through supermarket window.
Front torsion bar snapped so suspension collapsed ls.
Worn and broken advance springs in distributor.
Bought this car for £300.00 and was a daily driver.
Great drive and ultra reliable considering I was 17 at the time and drove it to hell and back!
Very fast compared to the English rubbish we had then.
Everyone knew me and I knew none of them.
Bench seats and pillar less were great.
Reasonable economy on long runs, but lousy in town due to my heavy foot.
Got through a set of rears every Saturday night doing burnouts everywhere, cost me more in tires than gas!
Handled like a pig when pushed, but was great fun sideways at 50+
Sounded absolutely fantastic with homemade exhausts.
Nearly blew myself up welding the boot seam behind the rear fender near the gas tank. (covered it with a wet cloth! Very very stupid on reflection)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
