It's a Gemini. A Gem
Heads/head gaskets. Diff/axles.
Bad squeaky front end (new bushes) etc.
Steering rack, all needed to be replaced...
I have gone through several motors, due to the fact that I blow them up. But you can give them a hiding, they will last for a long time.
A lot of electrical faults. Mostly ignition problems.
The car is a weapon, it's taken me years to build it to its current condition. The final result is amazing.
I have owned a lot of Geminis, and I intend to own more...
The hardest part was the fuel injection, I got sick of having to fiddle with the carby set-ups that I had. If you want to own a modern style Gemini, injection is the way to go. I picked my whole setup up for $400, bargain... that included a (old) microtech computer and loom and sensors, manifold/plenum/throttle body.
My next mission, is to get electronic ignition, apparently you can get it from later model Jackeroo's and Rodeos. But I am yet to find it for a reasonable price. The best so far was $125 for the distributor alone, private sale. not bloody likely.
Anyway, the car is fast and fairly reliable, especially in stock form, it handles amazingly, and is an excellent all-round car, I recommend them to anyone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
