My friend has a Lima. He loves its handling, especially now that he's replaced the hopelessly heavy wire wheels with alloy ones. Its weight distribution seems to be very close to 50/50, the engine having been moved some 8" backwards compared to Magnum, and the driver sits where the back seat of a Magnum would be. The long snoot takes some time to get accustomed to, though. He's even driving it in wintertime (which tends to get pretty cold here in Finland), with fur hat on and tonneau cover directing warm air on driver's side only.
