Sublime - Get one while you can!
Very little considering I bought it at a car boot sale for 200 quid.
The car had "head gasket issues" from day one and as such was prone to overheating. Driving with the heater on and the windows down during the summer solved that.
A local mechanic, overcome with nostalgia kept me on the road with some kind MOT results and reconditioned bits and pieces when things went pear shaped. Clutch 100 quid, carb 70 etc.
Rust was a bit of a battle, but that's what Halfords is for.
The car ultimately died of terminal head gasket, meeting its maker in a shopping centre carpark in North County Dublin.
Very quick as weighed close to nothing.
Go anywhere ground clearance.
Long bonnet - ideal for sun bathing!
Excellent petrol mileage for its age.
More comfortable than anything I have owned or driven since (I am not kidding here).
Very roomy and supremely stylish.
A third gear to die for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
