@pip-bip It's the Rally edition, with the 60 hp engine instead of the base 52 hp engine. The car is only 2000 pounds, but that's still not much if you are going to try to navigate modern American traffic. That 2000 pound weight also mean no crash structure at all.
Maybe you get this to take to shows on weekends, but anybody over 50 will look at it and shudder. The Chevette was GM's attempt to prove to Americans how much better the Japanese compact cars were.
@pip-bip hot damn. I don't usually go for American metal but that thing is rad AF.
EDIT: Ok so not so much a "barn find" as a "restored" car (that paint looks super flat) being sold by a dealer for aspirational money... (I mean... someone will probably pay that but $45k is a hard pass for me)
@pip-bip This is very similar to the Nova project Dave at Omega Auto Clinic has been working on on his YouTube channel, except that one was only sitting 20 years. Obviously, even if it runs, everything made of rubber, plastic, or cork is going to need replacement, because if it isn't leaking now, it will be gushing after a few thousand miles
@bison78 Tesla’s biggest problem is not having the supply to meet demand for the European market. The first month of every quarter, cars are built in factories in the US or China to be shipped to Europe. Tesla needs that factory in Germany up and running so it can build cars specifically for the European market.
