History
A very rare and weird french roadster with soft and hard top, independant suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes. It originally came with a 900cc engine, and later with an 1100. Mine has a 1289cc from a dauphine in it.
I bought it when I was 21 in 1986 for $2k
Even guys in hypercars stop to look.

Modifications

Drivetrain
Put a beefy Weber carburator on it and a monza dual tip exhaust. Its rear engine so there is not much silencing. Sounds like a ferrari, sets off ALL the car alarms when I drive through a parking structure. FUN!
Interior
Reupolstered and carpeted entire interior in the late 1980s
Exterior
Was white, until a "friend" painted it metalllic green while I was in Europe. He got over attached to it and is no longer a friend.
Audio
Usually a cute woman.
Wheel and Tire
Put wider tires on years ago... looks and turns much better.
