Rust like hell. Watch out for rear subframes and seat belt anchorage points as this is enough to fail an MOT like mine did. Also check for corroded sills and arches.
Very fast (wheel spins in third), surprisingly practical, legendary engine and also high revving and is solid and reliable, surprisingly comfortable, packed full of gadgets for its age (electric mirrors, windows, sunroof etc) and I just love the sharp clutch and fast shifting gearbox. I recommend one now to anyone except for a first time driver as they would be flying through hedges and fields and also boy racers ruin them with Lexus lights and rubbish like that.
I recommend this car to enthusiasts or people who look after them. wax oil the chassis as soon as you get one or even better galvanise it. then it should last you for life.
