My name ist Rainer and I'm a Daihatsu Fan since 1993 where I buy my first Daihatsu (a Daihatsu Charade G102s) from 1991.
Sometimes if you are a fan of a brand you come up with the idea that you want to have a historic car of your brand as it does in my case.
I buyed the car at ebay, as I contact the last registered owner within the car papers the women who answered the phone was very amazed that I could buy the car. She, the mother of the owner, tell me that he gave the car to a big Ford Dealer to scrap while they buy a new car.
Between the ebay seller sold the car at ebay he gave the car to a movie producer who use it for a very short scene whitin an german TV series.
I buy it for 300,- euro. Here you can see the ebay page where I buy it
But it is all in german language, sorry for that.
After a complete restoring....

I register it as historical car in Austria, so I got a certificate from Daihatsu that my car is builde in December 1980, first registering in Austria was in September 1981.
I hope you can enjoy the movie from youtube, if not you can get it also here: http://www.myvideo.de/watch/2614794
If made about 2000 pictures while restoring my car and print out about 600 pics and put it to a picture album. I have removed VERY screw of that car and rebuild it and repair it.....
