Fast car with excellent handling, and economical when driven legally.
If the dreaded rust disease has taken hold, it will need constant attention.
I owned mine for 12 years, and I bought what I thought was a good car, but it turned into a monster, so I spent the next 4 years rebuilding and modifying it up to a much better condition. With the modified engine I spent many happy hours blasting up and down the autobahn's scaring much more powerful cars, or so they thought, and generally wearing a big grin.
It was a reliable motor driving back to Scotland from Germany on numerous occasions, without a hiccup. The only real problem being the loud exhaust, but it did sound really good coupled with the gargle of the twin 45's.
I would love to have another one (the previous one had to go when I bought my new house). I just need to convince the wife.
