We purchased our 1992, Japanese import Toyota Lite ace in 2008 and I painted it over Christmas 2008/9.
Affectionately termed "Biff" because of his numberplate, he had all the mod cons for '92 and still comes up better than most other cars we've owned. 6 sun rooves, split system air-con, electric windows, a hot/cold box, swiveling chairs with armrests, and of course, electric curtains.
Usually piled high with people and longboards, Biff is a bit sluggish as a diesel but loves a good adventure and sleeping under the stars.
