Ooh - a Honda City, or some sort of Kei hatchback.  It'd be hilarious.

Tim has met me. Those who have not, do not realize how hilarious this is.  

Go big or go home

Regardless of what I end up, you're welcome to drive it whenever.

You need a Crown Wagon with the dual rear wipers. 

Or go British and get a Rover SD1. Uncorked 3.5 V8s are a hoot.

Can you get one LH drive?  Right hand drive gets old in a hurry.

How can you go wrong with a Brawny Fire Truck?  I'd hold out for one with the hose coil on the side.

I did consider that. Duncan had a Toyota hiace version that scratched a weird itch.

There's always cars sold in the Middle East. LHD Hiaces, Coronas and Crowns are a thing.

If you're talking SD1, yes. I don't think there are that many left but you should be able to find one in continental Europe. Switzerland or Germany, most likely.

To be serious, I kind of like the Soarer, if it’s something you intend to put miles on.  I figure it probably has the typical 80’s/90’s Toyota durability, so shouldn’t need much unscheduled maintenance.  Failing that, anything that shared a platform with something sold in the US, so at least some parts will be easier to come by.

In reply to eastsideTim :

Yeah, the soarer makes a lot of sense from that perspective. It's not as cool as the Nissan , tho it is close. The evo3 was my original choice because it's basically a 4 door 2g dsm. I am familiar with those cars.

Depends on the use.  As a car one might use regularly, yes RHD can get tedious.  For an occasional weekend car, RHD can add to the fun.
