Hatchback  sports car wirh vestigial back seat.  Engine is a fuel injected  inline 4 model B20F, 125 HP @6000 rpm.  The car was purchased in Germany, built to US specifications.  The current owner (me) was the first cousin of the first owner and has ridden in this car at >110 mph on the German autobahn.  I bought the car from the estate of my cousin upon his death.The car has been kept garaged since I purchased it except for regular warm-up trips. Actual odometer reading unknown, but undoubtedly higher than current reading. Starts and runs readily and smoothly

Car was purchased new by my cousin while stationed in Karlsruhe, Germany,  After my cousin returned to the US, the car spent most of the time in Augusta GA. until I bought it from his estate, so there was little or no exposure to road salt. Car spent the rest of its life (since I bought it) in Georgetown (Austin) TX, so still no road salt. Car has been garaged (on a hydraulic parking lift) since I bought it except for short drives
on sunny days.

Over $12000 spent on repairs and cosmetic improvements since I bought it. (see attached partial list)
Odometer reading 076445, true mileage probably higher. It was a daily driver for 30 years.
