Not so boring now. Love this lil thing. It's become the cheapest car in Australia.

After watching a recent YouTube video featuring one of these I really do wish they were available in the US as its the perfect small, cheap car I am looking for. Only comparable new car here off the top of my head is a Mitsubishi Mirage but those may be questionable in terms of quality.
 
American 3rd-gen Ford Escort. Has to be the blandest car ever built!

When those started popping up the mid-1990s, I was convinced Ford would just send recalls to owners for improving the mailed-in styling.
 
Punter: Is this like the one that's popular in Europe?
Dealer: Um... yes.

The Contour/Mondeo designer went into in the wrong office one sleep-deprived morning, caught the mistake around lunchtime.
 
Tried to see (through the forum search function) if anyone posted about this before in the thread, but couldn't seem to find anything. After my first visit to Japan, I can't help but be (somewhat?) obsessed with the Toyota Comfort/Crown Comfort. Something about plain 3-box sedan designs intrigue me so much with their simplicity. Doesn't help it's easy to replicate and make into a generic traffic car in lots of media like video games and animated shows/movies.

Is it bad that I kind of wouldn't mind owning one? Though not to replicate as a taxi of sorts, just as a plain sedan with nothing on it like the one in this photo.

Of course, really obsessed with the TRD GT-Z with how simple yet clean it looks.

One was for sale near me recently for about 7 grand, complete with the original seat doilies. I was very tempted.

I’ve only posted in the event & showroom thread. There are usually a few floating at shows(I’ll be on the lookout at the up coming All Japan event in my neighbourhood). A few are for sale stock and customised. Love how Japan package modern cars with classic styling.
