Quite enjoyed it. When it went back after three years unscathed ...brake discs very prone to distorting and being company car lease company reticent to upgrade and risk opening a modified car can of worms given insurance already thin ice
I bought a rhd 73 Carrera RS to replace it and for a while circa twenty year old Porsche was my only car so did everything including weekly shipping run to Tesco and daily nursery duties. Often abandoned at LHR long term parking as I was travelling overseas a lot. Also took redularly took on work trips particularly to Williams using the nice backroads around Grove . Coincidentally it had in past been previously owned by a former race team manager and well known Motorsport engineer who also worked there. Quite practical motorcar particularly when kids young the jump seats fitted with rear lap belts did the job. My son had a play steering wheel when very young which somehow we fitted to windscreen with its rubber sucker so he was driving it too occasionally joining us at the Rose of York third Weds gathering atherings along with kids of others. One of the old reprobates from those days occasionally reminds me of me and son arriving both driving:). Pity he wasn't older as could've had a few pints and let him drive home . He just retuned from Sicily this week and found driving on other side of road easy -- must've been the early LHD training . Following trio he's clocked the Targa Florio connection.
Enjoyed the Cossie for three years. Practical car and a nice stepping stone from fwd hatches that preceded it. Still got my Ford RS owners club badge and a patch in drawer somewhere
