Run Away If You See One For Sale !! — This car is a True Money Pit. Scary to Drive, stay off the freeway, unless you have a deathwish. I am not alone, interviewed 3,462 other, and former owners, and all say the same thing,"Run Away, if for Sale" Honest professional, expert Opinion.

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

Pros: Beautiful Car, inside and Out

Cons: Mechanical Nightmare. Brakes, Steering, Electrical.  Run Fast, Away, if you see one for sale.  A true Money Pit
