1992 Subaru Fiori 0.8 from Australia and New Zealand
Safer than a motorbike, but similar fun!
I bought this car as a backup ,"quirky" car to my Holden Nova. I do a lot of daily driving between workplaces and it makes a lot of sense, running older cars, to have two.
For its roadworthy the Subaru needed a CV rubber boot, a new windscreen, replacement indicator/lighting stalk and that's about it. Bear in mind, parts are not so easy to source, but they are around... (still).
Not very long after I had transferred the Fiori, my Nova self-combusted big time, so the Fiori became the daily driver. It starts first time; it sounds like a banshee, you can rev it to hell, and of course it can be parked in the smallest of spaces. Will do 110+ on the freeway, but is more comfortable around 90kph. It's a fifth gear car; once over 60 you should be in 5th.
So far it hasn't once let me even think I would have a problem, and fuel economy is significant; saving over $30 AUD a week!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
