So, yesterday, we went to look at a car, just to see how small it was, so that we could write it off as “not drivable all the way to Mongolia”.
It turned out that the car was way more roomy than we had expected, and the price the guy gave us was insanely cheap (we hope so at least :) … no read warning flags here, no no no!). So we ended up faling in love, and bringing him home.
Say hello to the latest addition to the Team Venture, we call him “Venture One”, aka “Mr. Matiz”, aka “Metallic-orangeback Mountain”, aka “Sugar top”.. WOHOO!!
This beauty is a Daewoo Matiz 1.0, 63 Hk, 995 cc. It has run 13500 mil, so we know the motor IS GOOD! (Right?). The colour is something people like to call Metallic Orange, but we call it “sunburst on a rainy day in the palmir”, same same.
ABS breaks, AC, Airbag on the driver side, CD-stereo (CD!!!), electrical window-thingies in the front … analog in the back. 5 doors, buttons on the key that you can lock the car with (this my friends, is indeed, the future!), seat heaters for the front seats (tho, I think these might not work). Also have outside temp. meter .. haven’t been able to locate this one .. maybe it’s on the outside of the car or something.
Some more images? YES!
