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.)

Pros: Attracts attention wherever you drive it.

Cons: Crack in fiberglass on front bumper, speedometer quit working, geared to low for high speed driving.

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!

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

Pros: Fun, inexpensive classic sports car.

Cons: Not high performance by todays standards, not much aftermarket support.

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.

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.
