Speedometer cable needs to be lubricated.

General Comments:

After all these years, it looks as good as it runs, with little maintenance. It's quick, sporty, sounds amazing, comfortable, well-equipped, and achingly attractive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

These cars do seem to get cooler with age. You don't see them anymore, and it's fun to see them on old shows on TVLand. Kind of sad to think of how many were trashed on Dukes of Hazzard, Dirty Harry, and The Blues Brothers.

Yeah these cars are cool. I just got one, my first car, and it's fun to drive. I'm the only in my country Belize with one, and it makes it better.
