52,647 km of absolute driving pleasure. Best vehicle I have ever owned.

List of faults and problems:
1) sunglass holder got stuck once.
2) ...........

Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST:
for it is the number of a F6 Typhoon; and its number is 0217.

Well what is the point of having a car if you dont drive it?

I tend to drive a lot, my AU2 Ghia had 98k when I got the beast but the record was my EA2 Ghia manual that had 270k when I sold it in '96, it still went ok but the aircon was buggered and as it had those F'n'C gas thingies in it I decided not to spend 1.8k doing it up and traded it on an EL. Got 7k for it too

If anyone has actual info on when the BA2 is being released I would be real interested as I want to flog this one before it clocks over 100k.
