Test Drive-

Chad drove several miles with the owner on back country roads. The car started well, ran well, and smooth. The car accelerates well, and the steering seems very responsive and car steers correctly down the road. Car has a nice quick, smooth responses to the left and right. The transmission seems to up shift, and down shift correctly. The clutch operation seems to work properly. Upon braking the car brakes smoothly, and does not pull to the left or right, however I do not think we are getting the full stopping power the brakes could produce. Over all the car is fun to drive, and has a nice sporty feel going down the road.

Note- The 1978 titles does not indicate if mileage was actual or not.
