I’ve always had a soft spot for EFs. My first car was white 1990 Civic and I have been mad to get another one since I sold it! This one hasn’t helped the situation at all – I ended up searching Done Deal the second I got home. Most EFs and EGs have been driven to death – it’s nice to see a clean hatch for a change.
This Daihatsu caught my eye at cars and coffee last weekend for a number of reasons, not least of which is the fact that it is modified in a Japanese style – Bosozoku (and maybe a little Shakotan) style. Oil cooler on the bumper, massive camber, deep dish wheels, lowered, huge exhaust. The bottom line – the owner took an old Daihatsu and made it something unique. Even more unique considering it’s an Irish car!

We saw this spotless ’77 Celica GT at the September Cars and Coffee in Limerick. Absolutely stunning, a very unique car in a unique colour. Just goes to show, the Japanese manufacturers have always been able to make good looking cars.
