Lovely car, strange that when they ordered it they chose the electric roof and metallic paint options but no power steering! which was similar in price.

I'd have no issue with the power...Bxs re light and the na 205 d I had still did the job. The lack of PAS with a bx would be a pain though. Fwd always is without it and the wheel isn't big enough! At least you get a workout. I have noticed how weedy my arms have become since selling my 1974 Leyland Sherpa Autosleeper 4 months ago...2 tonnes of Sherpa van to heave about!

Don't knock the 1.7 n/a diesel, they're not as slow as some would have you believe.
Ask Vanny as his mate had my old one (years back now) and I seem to recall he was quite pleasantly surprised by the performance.

They won't win any races but are nice and easy to drive, utterly fantastic on fuel and tootle along reasonably well.
