Liked the look of these after seeing Mike Dunham’s dad’s one at home. Had an Irmsher twin lamp conversion and subtle side decals making this one of the best looking cars I’ve had. Lacked go but used to tow the speedboat quite well when we used to go down to Bater in Poole Harbour.

Odd characteristic when you pulled away quickly was the back end used to rise up – weird – found a better toy next, the 205 GTi!!
