- Car washing – La Solo has only ever been hand-washed – DO NOT EVER TAKE La Solo TO A COMMERCIAL CAR WASH (unless they are going to hand-wash it for you)

-The car windows are electric, even though the handles look like they are manual and rotate to open and close – NOT SO – gentle pressure downwards, opens the window and gentle pressure upwards on the handle closes the window.

-La Solo Paint colour: 1992 Ford colour – Fiesta Green – Fiesta Green is mentioned but not that it is a 1992 Ford colour

-The fuel injection booster was installed after La Solo was on the road, and you will notice the small gadget in the foot-well of the front passenger seat.

-The back window is from a 1957 VW beetle, the two back side windows are also from an older beetle.

-Air Conditioning works great in La Solo.....the control knob is below the dashboard.....and the equipment was installed in the back window well, with the cool air coming from the back interior of the car – great ventilation on a hot day.
