    Mine's been great, aside from the valve cover leaking like a sieve. I have to thrash it pretty hard to keep up with traffic, but like I said, it'll cruise all day at 100-110 kph. The rear engine trucks are eerily silent in motion, too... at higher speeds, the wind noise from the mirrors, front fascia, etc. drown out the engine noise.

    I'd fix the leaks. Valve cover gaskets are cheap.

    Its a single seater Daihatsu, but I forget the name. It's a Kei class truck though. We did some bodywork on one a couple years ago.

    They are listed at auction Mizeet and MizeetII, but in English they are Midget and Midget 2. The one-seater with some cargo space in the back.

    Ive had 5 of them, sold 2. They are made by Diahatsu and are called Midjet. I dont know why but 1996s are most common. hey are only 2wd. Auto and 4 speeds. AC. Dont need power steering at all. 10" wheels. My salesman uses one as a daily driver and loves it. He only drives to work, home for lunch, out to the country to feed his horses, and back to town. You should see the other drivers looks on their faces when he hauls his dog. they actually have alot of room in them. 63mph wide open!
