Decent on gas


Mine had engine problems


Easy Car To Drive! — Performance - Handled great and the 5 speed made it worth any lack in horsepower. Appearance - Needed some help. The convertible top was coming off and had no back window. Fun Factor - I had a lot of fun with my first 5 speed. Too bad it died on me.

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

It Soon Is An Official Oldtimer And Beyond Ratings — It looks different. It is easy to get mechanical parts and do some maintenance by myself. We bought it in SC 1992 and brought it to Switzerland later on. This car was never exported to Europe, so it's one of a kind here. The body quality is rather good, so far almost no rust expect the lower end of the front doors. Nothing that can't be fixed. The 2L 4 cylinder OHC engine needs some attention and a few parts from time to time... electronic control unit is #3 now. Got a new ceiling. Of course, safety is not on todays standards. No air bags and no shoulder belts on back seats. But we avoid crashes ;-)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Good Starter Car By cappii

This was a well built car. It was fast enough, and excellent on gas. The 5 speed stick made it responsive and fun to drive. The interior was surprisingly comfortable for a small car. Got me a coup... Read More
