    That's "doily". You remember the things they put on the back of chairs.

If you're worried about the occassional panic stop, what you've got will serve youi well - assuming it's in good shape of course. All the stuff to make them like new is readily available - lots of it from local auto parts stores, no less. Of course, it's your car - and money.
    BTW, I owned one of these in the mid 70s. I loved it's outlandish styling. Sadly, even tho it's still around - it's now only good for parts.
    I can vouch for this - and we regularly drive in SAN FRANCISCO!
    As long as you keep them adjusted properly and flush the fluid every year or two, you'll be in good shape.
    One mod I do recommend is a dual master cylinder.
