Differant — Geared to low.. Fun to drive as long as you stay off the interstate highways. I really need to install a overdrive transmission or high speed rear end or both. Always attracts attention wherever you go. Convertible top is getting a little ragged, but I always have the top down anyway.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

I'd Drive Another One If I Found A Clean One Locally And Had A Few Dollars To Spend! — This was a great little car, I bought it in Florida while in the service in the late 80's. For all the rumors of unreliability, I had surprisingly little trouble with it! It was my daily driver for at least 2 years in Florida and was a fun summer car once I moved back to Ohio!

Pros

Great round the corners. Comfortable on long trips with good seats.
Simple mechanics. As reliable as any BL car from the time......

Cons

Not that powerful. Leaks.

Little Boys Still Say "corr...nice Car" — Like Mar-mite you either love it or hate it. They are not that common now as most of the rotten ones have been crushed. Great, cheap open top motoring and a little piece of England's now defunct motor industry.
