1985 Subaru Sherpa 960cc I think from Australia and New Zealand
I think the Sherpa for its age proves its quality
I had to redo the head after my father overheated it and discarded the car on the back of his property; cost $700, that was about 600kms ago.
I have had no other problems with the car.
It has very little use as I use it for signage for my business, as the council won't let me put an a-frame on the side of the road, so I use my Sherpa.
It handles better around sharp corners and roundabouts than most other vehicles I have encountered. It is very small in comparison to other vehicles, sometimes making it a little nerve wracking.
I drove it over 400klm on one tank of petrol at an average speed of 105klms an hour, and the last 20klms I'm pretty sure were purely on fumes.
I LOVE the Sherpa. I recovered from certain death on my fathers property, polished it up and now its registered and sits proudly on the road promoting my business. The last time I filled it up with fuel was months ago as it just gets driven into my factory every night with the occasional run home to recharge the battery.
What a fantastic little car for round town or a 1st time car for a cash strapped student.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
