1996 EJ9
Hi Everyone!

Mark here from Belfast!

As I'm unable to afford an EK9, I've recently picked up a clean '96 EJ9 with hopes of doing a conversion some day after doing all the visual bits.

Having watched AutoTrader and eBay for a bit it was clear there were no cars locally in Northern Ireland for sale and a lot of what was being sold in Britain were either automatic or had high miles. Fast forward a few months and this little car was listed. After being assured the condition was second to none I raised my budget to £4,000 to get one secured. A few days later I was on a plane to London with the plan of driving it back to Ireland via ferry from Liverpool

  • 1996 EJ9 Hawaii Edition in Dark Amethst Pearl (no A/C, no electric windows, no sun roof)
  • 46,000 miles and not one dent or ding that I can find, even had it's original plates from 1996 still fitted.

If it's history is correct, supposedly a gentleman from the US purchased it new in Cambridge in 1996 and split his time between the US and Cambridge ever since, doing very low miles. The condition of the car suggests to me it was kept in a garage or underground car park. :bow:

It almost feels like a crime modifying this thing after 25 years but I don't think i'll ever be selling it, so will style it appropriately!

Looking forward to being part of the community and I'll create a project thread in the coming days, already have new bumpers away getting painted!
