My Story: Purchased car in Texas in early 2013. Engine was a dud and has now been replaced with a new 401 from Tuff Dawg engines in Pheonix AZ. Less than 1000 miles on new engine.
Paint and Bodywork: Paint & bodywork is typical USA paintwork. Is a long way from show quality but fantastic to look at as a driver quality car. 2 out of 5
Interior/AudioVisual: Interior was replaced in the USA before import. RED & BLACK custom seats and inserts are a litrtle bright but work very well. Very comfortable. Dash is 90% all original pieces - after market 1980s radio with tape deck.
