Its a shame about your engine....such a very nice looking car. But you will get it going and be happy once again. It took me a year of working everyday on my 140/pg monza to finally be half way pleased with it....so if you are less than year to back on the rode...you will be better off than I was.

Hello,

What a lovely looking car! I've got my heart set on a gen 2 one just like it, and plan to go over in four years (for my brother's 50th) and bring one back to the U.K. I've done it before, with a 1975 Honda Gold Wing, and had a brilliant time. I haven't actually seen one in the flesh though, so wondered if I could buy you lunch and have a good look at your beautiful car....

Cheers, Will.

Nice looking car. Have one small idea. The window washer bottle is empty. Put in some water with blue tint to make it near perfect!

Congrats on the car, it's a very nice example. That telescopic steering setup is pretty rare and desirable. Here in the US you can easily sell one complete for about $1,000 USD.
