I've recently picked up a Mk1 Eunos as a fun car, look forward to getting to know it better – currently I've just given it a test drive and then brought it home from Croydon, and it's been sat in the garage since!
It's a 91 NA 1.6, don't really know many more details than that! Previous owners put in a roll bar, bigger brakes and coilover suspension, an induction kit and some bigger wheels (Wolfrace 15s). Is there somewhere I can plug in my VIN to find out what it started as? The history file I have with the car only goes back to 2016, is there a way to find out when it was imported?
I got a fresh MOT when I bought it and there are a couple of advisories to sort, plus it had some steering wobble on the motorway so need to get that sorted, but hopefully not much more.
Will check out the technical FAQs and try to work out what I need to know, then hopefully take it out for some action next month. Will look out for some local meets too (West Kent, near Sevenoaks).
I don't do anything locally but I'm organising a stand at Retrorides Weekender at Goodwood for CombustionPunks in May and happy to convoy to the Mighty5s trackday if you choose to attend in July (Horney will announce dates at some point)
For import, if it came over after 2005 there'll be it's full UK MOT history on the government website to look back on
I think it's the MX5 Restorer on the south coast who is recommended - not near but also not far!
Or there's a place just south of the Thames - can't remember the name of it now but seems to have a good reputation.
Freelance Mazda in Chatham maybe? They're not too far away. Brighton is a bit further but will check them out too.
That's the one - thanks for the reminder!
They seemed professional when I spoke to them but I didn't use them in the end because I used a more local place (and was not very impressed with the spraying work, despite being apparently a show-winning company...).
wannabe: I didn't watch it live but saw some of the highlights - one crash saw a Lotus Elite(?) crashed into and the front end ripped off on the tyre wall, with a 250GTO also smashed up IIRC! Expensive hobby... lol
