A cheap head turner; gets more looks than a Ferrari
As one should expect, the bloody thing is over 23 years old; an old car will have problems.
Typical power steering leak. As well as just about every seal and gasket needed to be replaced for reliability, due to its age.
Hey, you'd do the same if you had an American machine of the same vintage.
As stated by others, and on the excellent web site http://www.tr8.com, this machine is a blast to drive.
Of course if you let the car sit for 10 years, you will have problems later.
The engine is very quick, provided one keeps up on the maintenance (oil changes, lube, etc.) religiously.
These motors don't like dirty oil, and will reward you with a damaged camshaft as well as gummed up internals. Expensive.
The good thing about the parts is that a lot of the engine ancillaries are American, and can be updated with better seals, alternators, aluminum radiator, neoprene bushings, uprated brakes, uprated struts, etc.
One just needs the time to fix it properly, and with all the wealth of info on the net, this makes it much easier, as well as inspirational.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
