superb

49,989 miles on the clock at 31 years old. full automatic can get about 60mpg out of it. its been put on xr2 suspension and wheels at some point in its life so it handles like a go cart. its a bit uncomfortable because it finds imperfections on the roads that new cars wouldn't feel. its quite quick. it will happily out accelerate a modern car off the line and terrify your passengers when your sat at 60mph and they feel like its 80mph. I once out accelerated a discovery sport off the line in the filter lane with 4 people on board. it has a nice engine note and its back to basics apart from its suspension and wheels its all original I've just changed its original rotary arm and second distributor cap. I have rust points but there actually its first according to its mot history. it has a fantastic heater and its a upmarket trim been a luxury instead of the popular everyone saw in the 80-90s it rattles a bit and bounces a bit similar to my mums old Vauxhall Astra mk2 but what do you expect. this is a 80s born and bred you hit a speed bump and shout oh hail the 80s.
