Almost! Fingers crossed it'll be ready in a week or so.
Book (or web-based) sounds like a good idea, I think I could compile a few facts about the Netherlands. It's just a shame most of the early importers went bust or chickened out... good idea to fill a few hours!

:oops: Looks like a Luv cylinder, but it isn't... darn.
So the ones I bought (1 right, 1 left) won't fit - any Luv owner interested in cheap cylinders?

Wow, such a cool car! I would love one of the late-model diesel Station Wagons myself.

I never knew that the Florian was sold anywhere outside of Japan. Someone should write a book about all the quirky Japanese cars that were only sold in European countries lacking indigenous car industries (Suzuki 500, Florian, Mazda RX-9, Subaru M70, etc etc)

Agreed!

Cool car indeed. Subscribing to this thread to keep abreast of the developements.

ctmandu, here's a few pics to illustrate the difference, and the brake itself:

What I bought:

It's missing the almost trapezoid piece on the bottom... quite different. What I bought was for a 1972 Luv, but I'm guessing the brakes differ because of the 4/6 lug thing? I think I have found something in Australia now... fingers crossed.

Today was a 30+ degree day so not good for powerwashing, but I did it anyway. Before, dirty and pink:

Haven't done anything to the Florian yet (well, the interior light came on without me noticing and drained the battery)... but I went to a small meeting yesterday, 300+ km in mostly hard rain but she drove alright.

Image

Image

Lots of interest on the meeting and on the road, people craning necks to find out what it is... as you can see, at 100 km/h on the road it can't be easy to read the badges. :lol:
