Hi guys, long time classic Jap car lover, short time classic Jap car owner.
As a 20 year old living in England, car ownership doesn't come cheap. Thanks to rising car insurance prices and petrol being about £1.37 a litre here, having fun and enjoyment with cars now comes at a price, and as a student it's quite a hefty price too!
Thankfully this fantastic deal turned up on ebay and I couldn't refuse! Quick insurance quotes show this car is cheaper than any other car I had looked at by at least £400 a year, which for me is fantastic as every penny counts! As it is I've paid £2,200 this past year to insure your basic runabout car, so this deal was too good to pass up.
And here it is..
£520 worth of low milage classic Japanese car. Yep, it only has 18,700 miles on the clock from new! All original engine parts as it came from the factory, bar a new battery and whatever parts were changed when it was serviced. Car has next to no rust, and the only downside to it is the old guy used to smoke so the interior is a bit grubby. Apart from that i's perfect!
Anyway enough chit chat, here are a few pics I took the day it arrived.
Original plan was the usual wheels + lowering stick job, but this car is far too original for me to go down that route really! Not yet anyway. Basically plan is to clean it up (once this weather decides to be warm again), refurb the wheels, get a couple of replacement bits (rear light has a crack, and a small interior cover is missing), but just generally tidy it up.
Hope you guys enjoy! Once the car is all cleaned up I shall probably have some before and after shots, and some more once the car is insured and on the road again. Thanks!
