Electronic Distributor.

Heating problems in traffic.

Cracked the chassis just above stabilizer bar mountings, in front.

General Comments:

Although this is an old car with only having l28e motor, it's still a kicks a major punch compared with most newer 6 cylinders produced locally and internationally.

Love the electronics on such an old car.

Has full house set up.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
