Yes often like today they fired that up to run. It is actually certified to allow to drive on road.
 
Not quite on VW Beetle status but nice to me nevertheless.

Handling, steering and brakes, along with general performance were surprisingly good for something so inauspicious looking, Tim.

Staying with friends in the Adelaide Hills for a bit, I got to drive theirs around some pretty hairy, windy, steep roads. It was a pleasure to drive. 144 Wagon, IIRC - it was a long time ago.

That one looks to be in beautiful condition.

Mom had an '83 DL model. First time I drove it and hit the brakes I almost put myself thru the front windshield. Fantastic brakes.

Photo above is a 240, I believe. Next generation, a bit more sedate.

Also, a wagon 144 was called a 145, my father had one. My memory of it is less favorable than yours, it did have an amazing turning radius however.

The 142 (2 door coupe) with a bit of suspension work (ipd) was a fun car to drive.

Australia typically gets very different models of many brands, Ron.
Basically due to the rotten conditions in the outback here.

It's a proving ground for many manufacturers.

Some of our "major roads" are so bad that the one from Cobar to Menindee Lakes gave me a sub-dural haematoma ...

Our seventeen year old Subaru Forester handled it perfectly. Not so, my 76 y.o. brain ... :( .

Badging on the side says it's a 265 GLE model. Next step up from a 240.
