The Chevy was a diesel Caprice and is since sold.
The Patrol and the Eclipse are for grabs, for a price you'll kick yourself for asking.
Have the problems with the Eclipse been sorted out Cyrus?

this car is very very low and very fast.
Wrong, I have seen japanese Eclipse's and they are RHD. Only the Nissan 240 SX was for the American market and that is why you will never see a RHD 240 SX.

I would prefer a car that didnt look that good and went fast. Besides, its a FWD so handling wont be good. Hope you've heard of the term "RICER".

That Mustangs a lemon. It was bought on impulse although I had warned both friends (one being the current owner) but the dealer took an advance from both. He gave the car to one and the papers (of which I have my doubts) to the other. I had to sit in between them and sort out the matter which could have taken a turn for the worse. They both gave me the respect and authority to decide what is fair. I can happily say that today, both are still friends.
The car was bought to me when it was brand new, a convertible red Mustang. LHD and V-8. What more can a guy ask for but papers were an issue even then, which is why I let it go. Today its just a heap!!

dude u may be right but as far as i know,and as per my information, its the other way around that

Mitsu. Eclipse was only for USDM
and Nissan 240 sx was sold elsewhere as the Silvya name and i have seen many Silvya's here in mumbai wid RHD.

This particular die was initially sold as 'Eagle Talon' when Chrysler had a 50/50 Joint venture with Mitsu known as Diamond star motors. I am not 100% sure on the specs but they could be the one below

it had a 140 Hp 2.4 lit with Garrett turbo in it ( i am not 100% sure on it)
