Put about 150 miles on the little Daihatsu now. It runs great, and drives great other than a vibration at speed. That’s likely down to the worn out CV joint that I’ll be replacing soon. Properly go kart like with the stiff suspension and only weighing 610kg.

I wont be driving it much more until I change the timing belt since I dont want to risk grenading the engine. It doesnt look old but I also have no idea when it was last changed. After that and an oil change I’ll replace the CV joint and enjoy it, while slowly fixing the few cosmetic issues. Overall though it’s in fantastic shape for 31 years old.
