I like it. I expect it is the perfect combination of slow, thirsty and uninspiring to drive.  I might be wrong; please correct me if so.  I know little about these.
 

Disappointing incorrect….😂

I used to absolutely love me one of those. I ended up buying a Hyundai Coupe F2 (They clearly rotted or something, because it was actually a great - if not bonkers - car).

Nice buy.

I do like the look of these.  I almost bought one once, but it had a borked alternator and I found out through some Googling that you basically have to dismantle the entire car to get to the alternator, so I passed.

Hell yes, used to fantasise about owning one of these when I was younger 😂thought they were the coolest things about. 

When's it for sale? 

Getting belts done and full service.......then up for sale...it's a GPX model, for those of you who know about such things......

Remove the o/s driveshaft and bottom arm and with much giggery,pokery the alternator comes out from below.

My son has had two of these the first one was really rotten where the chassis rails pass over axle and fuel tank,it was also rotten where sills met the floor.

It was that rust that gets into a seam and just expands the metal untill it crumbles away and wasn't worth the time and effort involved to rebuild it.

The V6 manual ones go well enough,rev to 8k and they are still cheap to buy,his current rot free one was £1600. 

Looking on the jdm forums really silly prices are being asked for anything 90's and slightly fast nowadays.

I nearly bought one of those, but it overheated badly on the test drive... So I never.

There are some shiters that wouldn't have let a thing like overheating put them off 🤣

I remember for a while around 2000 my parents were living near Sleaford and whenever I visited there were loads of these around,  for a rare car they were everywhere. 

I guess there must have been a specialist garage or importers nearby.
