Hard To Beat Reliable Japanese Drive-train And Body — Bought it new in 1969 for $2050 out the door! Used it hard for everything from Auto-X to Off Road and every day driver! Good handling with tires and minor suspension mods, Weber DGV carb helped a lot! Great car for 4-up touring and a lot cheaper than BMW 2002 [a great Japanese copy of 2002, but with somewhat dated American styling]

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

Pros: Great, inexpensive copy of BMW 2002

Cons: Somewhat quirky American styling

Primary Use: Commuting to work
