I reckon S12 Silvia at a semi-educated guess.

Or maybe a T12 or T72 Bluey turbo or Executive.

Never give up

The Japanese at that time were really bloody good at making incredibly clean looking backlit dashboards weren't they?

 

For all there were a lot of interesting designs about at the time, I can't think of any other source of any which came close for how well polished the instrumentation looked after dark.

Surprisingly nice actually!  Really struggling to criticise it beyond "because it's an SUV" and wishing I could set it so the damn horn didn't sound every time you lock the thing... it's downright embarrassing when you get back to the resort late.

Close all the doors, hold the lock and unlock buttons on the fob down together until the indicators flash a few times.

That should shut it up. Repeat to re-enable.

Thanks for that! Will try that in the morning.

Really is my only gripe with it aside from the sheer size of the thing...but we specifically wanted a 7-seater and they couldn't guarantee that in any other form factor. It's a comfy old bus anyhow.

All of mine clearly work. All, that is, except the "A" on the auto shift indicator..... Maybe that's an omen.

Thanks for the tip... I'm no longer waking everyone up by locking the thing now!

Also National couldn't guarantee a 7-seater minivan...Large SUV was the only thing they'd guarantee we'd have 7-seats in - which we've needed all of for the last couple of days! It's coped admirably with carting 7 adults around... I'm well impressed...much as I might have wanted to hate it!

Not exactly night time as such: 5.20pm last Tuesday when I last used my car. Photo taken after I put it into the garage. I'll hit 98k once I drive off the estate tomorrow.

 

The car engine barely gets warm from my pad to my workplace and vice versa. Not good for a diesel is it?!

Nope. Not ideal for a petrol either. Buy an electric car! Or cycle.

Electric car would be nice if I could afford one but impractical. I couldn't charge it up at home as I live in an upper floor flat.

Have you told the Government about this problem? They think we all should have electric cars in 20 years time.

I was late to work because:
The circuit breaker tripped at 1am
The extension cord caught fire
Landlady pulled the plug out to vacuum the hallway
I ran out of 50p's for the meter and nowhere was open to make change from a ten
Battery decided it was full but only had 2.3 miles until it went dead and stopped, refusing to move an inch in 4 lanes of traffic (but still had enough power to run the hazard lights for 8 hours)

Given how crude the setup is I'm surprised how effectively the speedometer is lit to be honest. It's far from even, but is perfectly legible.

When running off boost it'll have intake vacuum so read below zero, on boost is positive numbers.

Charade G102. Everything you need, nothing you don't. The dials are very small though and the minor gridlines are distracting. A healthy 1.3 that spins to 7000 rpm. Phwoar.
