Love this car. The true harbinger of automotive change in India. My friend's father had one and he used to call it 20-20 because it was 20 years old and still managed to deliver 20kmpl in city despite running on stock bore ! That's Japanese quality for the masses !

I thought to share this image as I felt depressed to see an SS80 lying in this condition somewhere in Delhi.

Guys, I have been planning to buy a SS80 for quite some. My dad had booked the SS80 in 1986, however my mom did not like the car as said " This one looks like a toy", so we ended buy an Amby. But I somehow was always in love with this car Now that I have grown up to be a man, I want to own one. Can anybody help me get a SS80 in running condition in and around Delhi? I will much appreciate it. Looking forward to some replies !

This car is lying in Malviya Nagar in front of a private house. Somewhere near the roundabout (Bus Terminus).

350Z, I went to Malviya Nagar to hunt down this red beauty, but sadly could not find it. Could you please help me with some more details about the exact location? maybe a landmark will help me close up the search.

I had been in love with ss80 for some time and after a search which lasted for more than 3 months I chanced upon a 1985 deluxe model, which I soon acquired. After a month and half of being in garage to clean it out of some rust, the beauty is now back home. Thought of sharing some pics of my new beauty. [:)]

Congrats Mr.Krishna,
That is one well maintained SS80.

Nowadays there are more number of SS80's in running condition sold for around 50K (no repaint, worn ply tyres, sick interiors, GEM like JAPANESE engine) & there are equal no:of "parked to rust" Ss80 cars everywhere. The sellers quote such high price because they know that this model is usually bought by people who know about that car or its history or its engine or pure love for this GEM.

Incase anyone passes by Indiranagar (100ft road, old madras road junction) you can see a ss80 white colour, parked outside a hut with all old mattress & blankets on top of it. It really hurts to see such a legendary car in such a state. I wish no SS80 is left on road like the one I mentioned.
