|General History: ||There have been at least three owners of this South California car that had extensive restoration work and mechanical upgrades in 2000 at which time was repainted Polaris over the original Malaga. Very sound body and very reliable operation that makes it a joy to travel long distances. The only quirk to the car is that the sunroof motor is in the trunk and the sunroof is after market. Sunroof deleted in December 2010.|
