I love it !  I didn't even know there were things like that available, and I've just spent the last 20minutes browsing through that mag. I quite like reading old mags anyway (I'm a sucker for buying them off Ebay & fleamarkets) and not only the cars but the Bicycle section, home improvements, etc. And when you read the section on "mini computers" you realise just how much progress we've made in the last 40yrs.

Brilliant. thanks for posting.

I have that copy of Popular Mechanics but there didn't seem to be an article inside on the Europa, only the picture on the cover.  Did I miss it?

The article, which addresses several mid-engine cars including the Europa, starts on page 112 and continues on page 206.

I notice that the articles; "Easier to Fix," and "Longer Lasting" are NOT about mid engine cars  ;)

  It has been almost exactly 40 years since that hit the news stands.  Anyone who has a roadworthy or track worthy Europa now can claim it is Longer Lasting! Heck mine does not have one spot of rust on the body!
