Great fun Sunday car


Broke down once during 19 months of ownership... Problem never repeated itself, so put it down to dirt in fuel line. Otherwise very reliable...

General Comments:

Great Sunday car... make sure you buy one that has been looked after by a enthusiast!!! They are great fun and very unusual. Many people just stare at you as they don't know what it is :)

Not at all fast, but who cares...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
