wacky wedge that has character if not reliability

I bought one privately a few years ago and thought it looked great in a 'retro' way and was impressed with the performance and seats. However it often failed to start, cost a fortune to service and the build quality was awful. Eventually the clutch went putting me out of my misery. It returned 13 mpg at one point according to the trip computer and there don't appear to be many specialists. Ride was a bit jiggly. A late turbo manual might be a blast if you can find one.
