Car of the Month May 2008

  Submitted by Mark Blanchette



I bought my 78 Lido in Nov last year, I was amazed to find one such great condition, bodywork wise it needed absolutely nothing do to it, although I had the underside of the car treated as a precaution anyway. The engine and suspension needed some attention, which has now been done and it runs like a dream now.

I can't believe a car that's 30 yrs old can drive and handle so well. It's been 100% reliable (touch wood) and I use it whenever the roads aren't wet. It's got 36000 miles on the clock and all paperwork going back to 1983. I'm over the moon with it and look forward to attended my first club meet.
