A fun and collectable car because of the low cost price and lots of spare parts available!!!


My battery went down. The seats are starting to wear.

That's all.

General Comments:

The cars' acceleration is really quick for such an old car. The handling is not that much, but that's because there's lot's of weight on top.

Although two guys walked over my car last week, the paint is completely intact. No rust, I'm gonna drive this thing for years.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Centrifugal clutch disintegrated after hard use.

General Comments:

Loved the Michelotti styling, went well from a standing start (would beat many a boy racer at traffic lights), did fantastic tail slide specials in wet!!!

Does anyone still have one? Let me know.
