‘Best of all, I've not seen an­other'

2002 Dai­hatsu Sirion F-speed Alan Woods and Gill May­nard-woods, Mar­ket Deep­ing, Lincs

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR CARS -

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!
