Your Top 5 cars from the 90s

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd see which top 5 cars you'd fancy from the glorious 1990s....

These are mine, in no particular order and as always subject to change on a whim! ;)

This car dates from the 1970's, but in the latter 1980's it had a revamp, production ran on until 1992. My missus had her's new in 1987 and only sold it recently.
The VW Scirocco Scala.
(There should be a picture of The Scala here, I seemed to have ****** up.)

Hmm, top five you say? From the nineties, you also say.. OK, I would have kept my rust-free Corolla Liftback as I only sold that when getting up and down, into and out of the car became a big problem but a good one of these is every bit the match for an equivalent Escort or Astra, but with really plush interiors, electric everything and a snout that was frequently mistaken for that of a Maestro by people who'd seen neither an AE92-flavoured Toyota or a Maestro..

and because it was a 1990s Japanese car, often seen with a taxi lamp on the roof, it was almost compulsory to have a certain type of seat cover to turn this lovely place:

into this mobile office:

OK, so how many does that leave of the five? Oh bugger! Thinking..

:idea: Production of my daily motor began in the nineties, so it qualifies under the terms of this thread, right? Oh good. ;)

GR9 for transporting an ancient motorcycle and/or a small stationary engine to a show and providing dry picnic space for six members of the local multi-make car & farm machinery club during one of those downpours that empties the arena but fills the beer tent every time, these began production in 1999, so another one exactly the same shade of grey but six years older would be distinguishable from mine only by its number plates and the strength of its smell, since Toyotas of that era come with a very potent pong of trim glue that only really seems to fade once they get into their teens, so the opposite of human beings then!

I must have a Metrocab on my list of the '90s' favourites, then another Toyota that fits the bill would be the HiLux Surf, chiefly notable for being the only mass produced car to be named after not one, but two brands of soap powder. :lol: :oops:
Image
Wow, four already, last one from me must be the mini, the real one, which works in this sort of situation whether the decade was the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s or early 00s. I can't get into them these days unless they look like this:

You're welcome Rich! I'm sure though there are plenty of Sunny's (or should that be Sunnies?? :? )out there for very reasonable money, so you should be able to reacquaint yourself with your dream car once again... ;)

It's a Daihatsu Mira, available with a mini front end, or early Panda, or even as a Renault 4 replica, in fact the variations are many and varied. They're a Kei class car, so come with the usual 3 cylinder 600cc, 60bhp turbocharged petrol, as found in pretty much any Kei car. I tried one of these out before settling for the Yaris based car / van / spare bedroom as seen earlier. There wasn't anything bad per se about the tiny, tall Daihatsu, but the day I tried it, there was a 50mph+ wind blowing and while the bB's plastic aerodynamic aids make it remarkably unperturbed by such meteorological phenomena, that Mira had teeth marks in the rim of the steering wheel by the time I'd finished my test drive! The driver's seat was black so the spontaneous diarrhoea wasn't the issue it might otherwise have been..

:sick:
