    As one who has purchased such a car, I would suggest you look for all the fasteners. If you are lucky the owner has bagged and tagged these little bits. Enjoy your new find.

    ps: now with a 71E with S power train, but the original engine and sporto still with the car, just not in it.

A sportomatic car in Aubergine will be a no go at track days, just suitable for Christopher street days.

    If brakekiller is not only a name but conviction you should look for a S, R, ST, RS or RSR and please not in Aubergine. Choose tangerine, black, bahama yellow, silver, ultra blue, slate grey but not "poofy aubergine". What will you do in the race in your "sportomatic" when your competitors change the gears? Will you renew your eyeliner in a extrabig beauty mirror? Or dream of your new highheels?
    Brakekiller, you can believe me. This car is a car for a women.

    All wonderful reminders of why I'm not much involved with this community.

    Best of luck with the purchase and the restoration.

    You cannot imagine what I hear about being french (and about my last name too) - you are part if you wanna be. It needs everything/everyone to get the world round.
    I have automatic too ;-)

    Anyhow, thank you for your message.

    Pretty sure those posts were satire and sarcasm. (And not a bad attempt either.)

    Taking life too seriously is bad for one's health.


    Xavier,
    If you end up with this car definitely go trans gender.

    Otherwise you may turn into one of those estrogen-driven sporto fan boys who insist that they just love their Saxomat.


    Trigger Warning! Apologizing in advance for my whiteness.

    I often buy parts I think I need but find out I already own.

    Took a while to take the bait, but as always worth the wait!
