Great Run Around Car, Not Very Comfortable On Long Trips — I love these cars. Being British cars, they have their faults. The ignition system should be immediately replaced. Also do a thorough inspection of the electrical wiring. Other than those typical problems, these are great cars. I taught both my kids to drive a manual transmission in these.

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

Pros: quick car, has overdrive so holds highway speeds well

Cons: British car, anyone that has owned one knows what I'm talking about.

Time To Let Someone Younger Than Myself Enjoy This Little Car — Most important is it gets 32-36 mpg. It is a pleasure to drive because of the handling. It needs no repairs of any kind, no rattles or noise of any kind. It does not smoke on start up or down shift.

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

Pros: At todays fuel prices gas mileage

Cons: only two people can ride in it

Fun Little Car — This car was sitting for 6 years before i got it, after little tweaks here and there she fired right up! Other than the breaks not working and havening to deal with the Lucas electrical system this car is great!

Pros: Fun little car to drive, with a 4 speed trans that shifts pretty nicely for it's age!

Cons: LUCAS!!!! If you have ever had an old European car with Lucas electrical system you know what i mean. whether it's in a jag sterling or mg it sucks!!! One day the wipers will work then the next minute they stop working, then working again 10 mins after you need them. It's just ridiculous!

Though It's My Dad's Baby, This Is One Fun Little Car! — What can I say? It's British, and it's over thirty years old. The thing is always breaking down. Even so, it still runs, somehow. It probably should have been put down about fifteen years ago.

Pros: Handling. The thing takes corners like you wouldn't believe.

Cons: Electrics. Ever wonder why the British drink warm beer? It's because their electrical systems are so weak.

Project — its a project car that SHOULD have been done by now but I haven't touched it in a good while. It is convertible. One weird thing about this car is that it has 3 windsheild wipers instead of just two...and its British.

Pros: its cute and its different

Cons: since it is a British car it is harder to buy parts for it
