Review
As an original owner of one of the first cars off the first boat I expected some design/build problems. To date no major problems, especially since the three teenagers got their own cars. All learned to drive stick and still try to "borrow" their Father's car. Original top and interior, looks almost as good as new. Driven in all seasons except "salt," often with the top down. The car sits outside all winter under a cover and starts reliably even after four weeks with sub-zero temperatures. Average yearly maint. now runs around $150 including tires.
Favorite Features
Fun! Still get stopped by people who want to talk about how much they like the car. Great design, very well built. The newer designs are a little less "pure" and drive better unless you like the feel of older British sports cars.
Suggested Improvements
Never shift in the apex of a turn, or while turning on a slippery surface unless you have really good reflexes and car control. If I thought it could be improved I would have traded for a newer year.
