Why not go for An Old Matiz with Power Steering ? The spare parts are not so hard to find and It ain't for another 3 years,It's Much more Safer (5 Star Safety Rating back in 1999),Has a More powerful 3-cylinder 5 speed MPFI TPS 16 Bit Engine,It's very cheap to get one and Maintain (Rs.40K for a good one and Maintainence Rs.2K per Year),Has much better Interior Space (Can seat in 5 People with ease),Has much better boot space (120L) and More Importantly,Drivability (Has Power Steering-Parking is Easy as a Tin can),Looks (Still looks cute after all these 15 Years -Ladies will love it
) So what im telling is
Car - 40k
Restoration - 40K on Exterior,Interior,Components,Electricals
3M Care - 10k on Anti-rust,Corrosion,Teflon coating,Paint protection,Wash,Packages.etc
Other accesesorries - 10K on K&N Air filter,New engine and Gear oil,Seat covers.etc
That's it ! You will spend a Lakh on the Matiz and It is all set to roar ! It will be a Headturner.
Most importantly If you do this,You will be the First in TAI
to Restore a Matiz.
I feel this is a much better way and Car for a Lakh of Rupees than a Nano.
