Since I'm currently carless, and have nothing to post..
Does this count?
That Colt was my first Japanese car and also made me a big fan. I put over 200 000 HARD km on it and the last week I had it drove it with no clutch (I suspect the throwout died) and eventually the transaxle case cracked......(City traffic)
I have some of my old '78 Civic somewhere too but would have to find and scan them....
