Oh hey, its Vivian..
Somewhat rusty, but super sweet..
This is the L55 Mira - the first generation for the model - introduced in 1980. This second generation Mira (L70) was introduced the following year.
One of the coolest parts about this model is its twin cylinder engine..
The highlight here however, is the interior:
Its as if Daihatsu raided a golf-course... i absolutely love the whole look in here.
The red-on-red looks great, and i love how the body-colour has spread over onto the top of the doorcards - something that was very common years ago (it is cheap/lazy..), but had all but gone by the mid 80's.
notice the cassette unit hanging under the dashboard - its just so small in here!
I'd buy it some tiny, pink, Hayashi Sakura's (do they come in 13x5? :) ); and get some floormats trimmed in the same patten as the seats.
Its just so sweet..
..what a laugh. :)
