Today I came across two cars that before today I had no idea existed.

 

The first is the Mazda 323F Coupe, notable for not being as pretty as the standard 323F.

The second is the Toyota Corona Exiv which is a quite swoopy looking saloon which I rather like.

So did you know these existed, or is there any odd shite cars that you have only recently learned of?

http://www.parts-specs.nl/photos/0327492...

 

 

I had never seen that 3-door 323 (323C I think they were called?) until I started seeing a few around Edinburgh in the early 2000s, on (I think) L or M plates. Not sure why that was, don't think they were ever sold new in the UK, so possibly secondhand imports from Ireland, or something like that...

Down here in the far south we get a huge range of JDM imports as used cars.
The Toyota Exiv is one an they were very popular, built on the Corona platform but longer, lower and wider.
Here's a selection of Toyota models from http://www.trademe.co.nz/

Once owned a Mazda 323 saloon on a r plate. Different front ends to the coupe. A few years ago I also owned a Daihatsu applause. Looked like a saloon but was actually a hatch back. Never seen either of them before or since. Both of them had full electric windows,air con and electric sunroof and both had stupidly light steering.
