    Hi, my name is Felix, I'm from Germany and I'm 27 years old and I own a Copen for 2 years now! My is silver with red leather, made in 2005, here it is the most bought or ordered colour-combination! Is it in the UK the same? My favourite colour would be champagne-metallic with beige leather. This colour is here also available but only as a LHD with the 1.3 ccm-engine so the silver/red combi is my 2nd most wanted! I'd really like to have many kei cars especially the Toyota Sports 800 (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_pCNZkVc29ys/S9YbyS5bQjI/AAAAAAAAABI/Vcyy7_0NIPE/s1600/toyota+dani+008.jpg) I guess some of you might know it. :cool:
    A SUZUKI Alto WORKS would be cool too (http://noriyaro.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/alto_works_dog_fight_pro_001.jpg).
    I hope my English is good enough, so don't hesithate to correct me!:p
    I wish you lots of fun with your little "bugs":)

    The Toyota Sport 800 looks great. What year production would that be?

    The year should be around mid 60's! The size is like a kei-car from that period as far as I know but the engine is a 790 ccm air-cooled 2 cylinder with 33 HP!:) AND it is the first car with a "targa-roof", most people think that Porsche has invented the targa...but they're wrong! This car was invented for the american Soldiers stationed in Japan, that's why it is LHD (one of 313 and one of around 3000 ever built, LHD and RHD)! It's a nice sporty car, IMO, EDIT: 45 HP and a top speed of around 115 mph (155 Km/h), no extras except for vinyl-leather seats (hope it is the right word for "fake-leather":think:) and it's funny to have a 4-speed gearbox! Some weeks ago there was one for sale here in Germany, a LHD in red, for around 5K Pounds! Half of the parts are missing and the car itself was in bad shape too...well, there are parts to buy in Japan, e. g. Yahoo-auctions, but way too expensive...sigh...:(
