      Got you covered Roy:

      Macca donk is a development of the Nissan LeMans donk developed by Ricciardo many moons ago.

      .
      Close, engine was designed by Ilmor for Indy IRL but not used and then picked up by Nissan for the VRH series. Somewhere along the line TWR bought the rights who then sold it to McLaren who got Ricardo to help develop it into its current guise.

              Wasn't there a turbo 3cyl Suzuki Cultus or Swift at the same time as the Charade?
              Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                Ooooh, good point.

                I was thinking it was going to be the Dihatsu Charade Detomaso special

                        #4 I think maybe there are multiple answers, because I remember Dad renting a new 4cyl VC when we went to Cairns in the early 80's & it wasn't export-only. Unless "export only" is a misdirection ...

                        #5. SLE or Calais (until 1985).

                        Sloth, I'm pretty sure the Cielo was a 1984 Kadett which they left in the sun to melt.

                          Daewoo made a "Roadster" which was literally a 1st gen Elise with a facelift. Dunno how many they sold, I presume not many. It was 20yrs ago

                                Was it an RS200? I seem to vaguely recall that some such thing existed, and an RS200 was just flimsy panels on a tubular chassis wasn't it?
