  1. 1999 Toyota Levin - €3500 https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/toyota-levin-1-6-3500/27021544 I liked these when they were a common import here; they all disappeared from rust and Fast and the Furious style mods; lovely little things to drive, not like a Paseo
  2. If the engine pic hadn't been included I don't think I would have believed 49cc
  3. Ligier Optima 49cc - €3000 https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/micro-car-ligier-optima-49cc/26998366 Owner reckons it can be driven on scooter licence but I'd be sceptical; would love a go
  4. Definitely 210 manual turbos, both 1997 in classic spec.
  5. There definitely were manual 300tds; I knew two used as taxis near here 15 or so years ago, both Classic spec with cloth. Both got butchered, one engine and box lives in an 80s G and the other in a late 60s / early 70s Merc saloon.
  6. 1988 Isuzu Piazza Turbo - €3000 https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/rwd-2-0-turbocharged-izuzu-piazza-/26637668
  7. 1987 Ford Cortina - €1650 late registration madness here 🤔🤣 https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/ford-cortana-2-0-ghia-original-irish-car/26607673
  8. 2008 Chevrolet Epica 2.0 straight six - €1295 https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/2008-chevrolet-epica-automatic-6-cylinder/26600083 Only ever saw a few diesel Epicas around; never knew they did a 6
  9. Those Japanese spec p10s are very different than euro ones and the 1.8 is a flier; I'd struggle to choose between the Trueno, Primera or Celica tbh
  10. Petrol or Diesel they really made good cars in the 90s; I think the variance in ranges is because independent distributors lasted here until the 1990s in a lot of cases; I think Mitsubishi was at that time Harris's, the same people with responsibility for us getting oddities such as the Isuzu Aska or Gemini which were common here at one stage Harris's sell lots of LDVS now to An Post and every fleet company around it seems
  11. 1998 Mitsubishi Galant 2.0 turbo diesel - €1200 https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/mitsubishi-galant-diesel-low-mileage/26430639 I had one of these for around a year in 2005 and it was lovely; not a torquey TDI but one very smooth diesel engine and good enough on fuel; makes an XUD sound very noisy indeed but not as urgent or powerful
  12. I'll have to buy a copy of that; don't know if you've seen this guy's Irish work, he's a well known motorbike racing photographer with a love for old petrol stations https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/great-gas-a-history-of-modern-ireland-in-old-petrol-stations-1.4154107
  13. A mate had a 1993 Japanese import one of these around 2002 with a 1.8; looked like an eGT with gingercators but seemed faster than any 2.0 I ever drove Even a 2.0d another mate had the guts of 20 years ago was sharper than you'd think Tbh, I don't think I've seen a P11 in the wild for a good while, let alone a P10; even P12s seem to be thinning out by now
