Well, I hope you can hang on to them. Good Finnies are hard to find.
A few years ago, I drove a very rusty '60 220S for awhile. After a few minor repairs (motor mounts, brake adjustment & hoses), and I got used to the manual-steering and drum-brakes, it was an awesome car to drive. And I really enjoyed the column-shift again.
(How I learned to drive a stick on my first Ponton 180, back in the early '70s).
My Finnie left me with a good idea of how nice one of these must have been when new.

Happy Motoring, Mark
