    What does this car say about you?

    Liked something a wee bit different maybe?Love

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Loved the shape.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    I'm tempted - it had bags of character. But ultimately it was starting to get expensive to maintain after it was about 8 years old.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    I replaced it with a Honda Civic 1.6 when the coupe got written off after hitting black ice and ending up in a ditch. Needed something more practical while I saved up for something sporty (bought a Camaro).
