Is this worth looking at

I love the 2 tone look
1985 Renault 9 For Sale in Tallaght, Dublin from voodoo irl

I brought our vacuum cleaner to an American that repairs appliances. I said, "this Hoover doesn't suck", he replied "come back when it does"

Re: Is this worth looking at

By the time you've sorted rust at bottom of doors won't be two tone any more.
Will feel underpowered compared to more modern cars.
Spares may be an issue
How far does rust go?

Plus side, easy (relatively) to work on.
No fancy ECUs etc

Worth a punt,,,,,,,, IF you have the time to restore,,,

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,
