Was, remains the first quintessential
sports sedan. The unassailable
benchmark. Superb in every performance
and handling respect, except high
speed sweepers. Lithe, tossable, and
possible to drift & steer with a
throttle, though its glue-like grip
makes it necessary to speed to break
away. Its flaws: a cheap looking
interior much improved in later model
years, and many flawed materials.
Problems I have had in the first five
years included a broken radiator tube;
a leaky gas tank; a broken rear
spring; a broken window lift; two
leaky oil pan gaskets; inability to
start due to plug fouling ; and,
twice, loud exhaust due to total loss
of muffler baffles.
Handling, weather band radio, perfect
instrumentation and Getrag
transmission, power, breaking, ride,
solidity of body.
