I'm wondering if anyone has any experience/advice regarding a 1991 
Mercury Capri. This is the first year 4 seat convertible using the 
1600 twin-cam Miata engine. I'm not sure if the 5 speed is Miata or 
something else. I've come across one that needs some minor work 
(exhaust leak). This is the XR Turbo model. Is this car FWD? (haven't 
seen it yet)

I'm considering this car for my daughter (19). Any advice on what the 
weaknesses may be or what to look out for would be appreciated. The 
car has 144,000 miles (which is not much for a Miata engine), though 
it was supposedly been rebuilt. Body is clean and straight but the 
top has a couple patched rips.
