According to the claim on Marktplaats (Dutch Craigslist) this 1992 Daihatsu Opti was actually a show car for the 1992 Leipzig Auto Show:
The car has been shipped from Japan to Leipzig to be shown to the public. Apparently the public didn’t like it that much and the Opti never made it to Europe.

Back in the late fifties Jaguar launched the Mark 2 as a medium sized saloon and it was an instant hit!

Just imagine: for only 7000 euros you can own one of the most sought after Toyotas! And according to doggy its price has dropped from 9900 euros to 7000 euros already!
Obviously there is a drawback: it is not really in a good shape… See also this picture in what shape driver side is: Read the rest of this entry →

It appears to be completely rust free and bone stock.
Well it should be since it only covered 62000 kilometers so far! Well you actually can’t tell it did 62K with this spotless interior: Read the rest of this entry →
