An Oldie But A Goodie! — Funnest car I have ever owned. High power modified 5.0L V8 engine delivered unbelievable power and torque right through the rev range. Aftermarket suspension gave excellent road handling whilst maintaining suitable ride quality. Being an older car gave it some character.

Pros: Comfortable standard seats gave comfort and support. Lightweight car available with high power engines from factory. Limitless aftermarket accessories available. Unique body styling.

Cons: Susceptable to rust, boring brown and green interior colours from factory. Limited body colours available.
