‘Best of all, I've not seen another'
2002 Daihatsu Sirion F-speed Alan Woods and Gill Maynard-woods, Market Deeping, Lincs
Don't worry, I'm not trying to pass this off as a 'proper' classic (well not one in the Morris Minor/e-type Jaguar class) but as a truly practical classic. One owner, 60,000 miles, full history, immaculate condition, four-speed auto, air conditioning, 1.3 16-valve, all packaged in only that way the Japanese seem to do. While a bit strange to look at, it's great fun to drive and if you slip into semi-auto mode goes like a rocket. Best of all, I've not seen another. It's now a daily driver and complements our Fiat Uno, Mitsubishi Colt and Fiesta MKII nicely.
Practically, a classic!
