This has been a real workhorse this one neglected beyond belief but just keeps on trucking.
Bought in 07 for 425 and has only wanted fuel and basic consumables....last mot was a tyre and a bottom balljoint.

gotta love the K11...we have 2 in the household hoping the other proves to be as good.

will get pics up of the other bangers in due course

I've got a friend that has one of these, same colour and with a brown interior. When he first got it he took one of his boys out in it who was about six years old. When they got back he asked his lad what he thought of it. After a couple of seconds thought the lad said 'Daddy, I think I'm going to call this car Mr Poo'!! Three years on he still has it and its still called Mr Poo but it has also been joined by a much newer one too.

Very highly recommended in Taiwan, where they were still in production until a couple of years ago. Parts dirt cheap and mechanics understand them.

Mostly automatics here though Sad

I understand the successor model (K12? only imported here in small numbers) eats timing chains.

they are prone to chain stretch and when the cam timing goes out of sync with the crank timing it throws a code and wont start!!

anyway here is car 2 in the family banger fleet

has a little bit of urban patina but all in all not as shabby as the green one
