Pros: "Handling"

"Having taken exceptional care of this car. It has given me 162,000 plus fun free miles. Now that I am older , I just drive it on those special sunny days. The car is not fast. Still after having many different sports cars in many different countries. Thus car will still give that special road feel. Long hood is classic. Taking it out on the back country roads is what this truly is made for. Don't have to be fast. Just it and the wind in your face is all one needs."

Pros: "Super all around!"

Cons: "Fast & low - others can't see you."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Positives: I've had my car for over 10 years now & I still love to drive it! This car totally loves passing gear even on a hill climb & glides without resistance. From the super unique body, the gas mileage, the power, the low growl of the engine, the way it lowers & raises when parking or backing, the way it grips the road on tight turns, & the way it fits everywhere. I know why Bond drove it! Negatives: Low to the ground & others can't see you. (Perhaps drive w lights on.)Fast car - others don't always check mirrors. (Don't riding by rear door of vehicles adjacent.) Breaking is excellent but other cars can't stop as quickly. (Here is where distance from other vehicles & breaking sooner is your friend.) This car is low to the ground & grips the road in tight turns. Wear sunblock! Great for weekend rides on the coast!"
