Great acceleration. Great handling, beaten by a Chevy Typhoon only. Great fun to drive, introduced me to "open air motoring." Will never drive a closed top automobile EVER again. Great automobile from which to learn the limits of cornering in front wheel drive vehicles. Very sorry I gave it to my daughter when it turned 10 and had only 101,000 on the odometer. Imagine, she turned around and traded it in on an automatic transmission Corolla (she didn't like the manual transmission).
Removable and easily stowable roof with electrically lowered rear glass, for a convertible feel. Very quiet with the windows down and roof stowed at 85 MPH.
Really needed an electrical antenna (I installed one from an Accord).
