Yep, Kei-car rules rule! (under 660cc nowadays). Back in the 60s/70s it was 360cc max, in Holland here they sold the Honda N360 and Suzuki Fronte 360, but when they were critized for their tiny engines they gave us the N400 and Fronte 500. Huuuuge improvement! :D

I think that 1300 estate is the one Wuvvum and I saw in Kimbolton when we collected the Galant last year. I'll check back on my thread...

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Great to see the old Paramount getting some love on here - this one like many survivours has lost its enormous original rear light clusters.I have fond memories of travelling to work on one of these atop a Tiger Chassis and the gloriously growly Gardner engine :D

Yeah the originals were as high / long as the bootlid! (yes I have a rear light fetish for all moving objects! :lol: ) I wonder why they changed them? :?

Two reasons I'm guessing:

1. They have a habit of going black really quickly, and

2. A single lens probably costs as much new, if you can find a supplier, as one of those entire replacement BMAC clusters. (But they do pop up on Ebay from time to time)
