Other than the powertrain, similar to the Escort GT & Mazda 323, the car is 
junk.  Built in Australia from unobtainium parts, ie power window switches, 
hardware, gages etc.  poor quality plastics prone to age & stress cracks, 
lots of rattles.  All but sale proof when new, came with all of the good 
looks of a TR-7 and electrical gremlins to match.  I would avoid at all
