My GL - part of my cheap Japanese fleet!

Picked this up a while ago as I had one before and loved the old girl! I can't resist cheap cars and am always changing them around (had around 10 or so this year) I did the newer car thing for many years and suddenly realised how bored I had become with it all.One cheap car to keep the miles down on my more expensive main motor at the time was all it took to get me hooked!

Having a Westfield kit car also helped as it had nothing in it bar a few switches (not even a heater) and I realised that I just prefered older, more basic motoring.It's just a bonus that you still get various toys to play with in some of the older Japanese motors, because what I enjoy the most is the general cheapness, reliability and looks! Saying that, the Hijet is a laugh a minute and no longer even has a carpet, so I don't miss having nothing electrical to play with! I also have an MX-5 for back lane blasts, a cheap Subaru Justy (which I have yet to drive very far) and a CR-V which is handy as backup incase my bangernomic fixation turns sour on me!

Forgot to say, one of my main bangernomic rules is that all wheel covers must be ripped off, so this was running on suprisingly clean black original steels for a while.However, a mate of a mate had some cheap wheels which needed a refurb from an MX-5 and I tried them out on the old girl today..I quite like it!
