Pros

Completely rebuilt to my dream car.
Fun as to drive and always makes me smile (until it breaks down lol)
Good fun on a social standard EG: cruises, track days and just meeting up with others.

Cons

Not the most reliable car even though mine doesnt play up but i dont drive it much.
Not economical at all (but hella fun lol)
Plenty of attention from police because of the VL reputation.
