The unknown classic


As the car got older, naturally, more things needed to be replaced or fixed. The clutch and gearbox was replaced at 100000km, the water pump at around 300000, together with a new paint job, the passenger front door after a theft attempt, and all the other regular maintenance, as brakes, oil, etc.

General Comments:

My first car, loved it, the biggest backseats the world has ever seen, nice 6 cylinder sound, nice looking original RS body kit.

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