Overall Rating:

I bought this car from London SW British Telecomms; it had only done a mere 30k miles.

It has served me well and I still would have no hesitation using it to go to Bristol or Northampton. It is a true workhorse, furthermore it can be used in the guise of a van to drop rubbish etc. at the local tip; obviating the need to pass over the municiple weighbridge and thus avoiding local charges.

For a car produced in the early eighties its design remains current and undated. She is a heavy girl but is extremely solid. Her 5 speed gearbox ensures good torque at all speeds although being the Emax model she will never set the world alight.

Insurance falls into the Classic Car bracket and is only a touch over £100 per year for fully comprehensive.

I am about ready to move one on but she must go to a good home where she will receive some well earned TLC.
