the cars I drove | the 2nd

The second car I had the chance to drive was a Daewoo Cielo. The year of production of this car is 1997. So it has now 16 years of daily use. Now it is my father’s daily driven and the technical condition is more than good. 
The car (sold in Western Europe Countries as NEXIA, also) was produced in the Daewoo Factory in Craiova (RODAE) since 1996 until 2007. The equipment of the GLE trim level includes 4 electrical windows, AC system, and a 1.5 litres gasoline engine @ 80 PS (59 kW) at 5,400 rpm. The car was an affordable good car, comparing with the DACIA cars available at the moment on the Romanian Automotive market (we are speaking now about the new cars market). 
Basically the car is an Opel Kadett E, which has successive face-lifts until the 1996 look. Several LeMans/Racer Daewoo - Kadett E copy/paste - were sold in Romania as a “preproduction series” as a market test.
I reproduces the car I drove, from an 1/43 Daewoo Cielo issued in the DeAgostini collection “Masini de Legenda” (Legendary Cars). The modifications are at the interior (trim color, seats finish, and so on) as well as at the exterior (the metalic blue color, the chromed trims on the bumpers and on the side, the tail lamps, etc.). The color is from the Daewoo repairing units color panel, putted in a spray can (by the service unit). The number plates are those which the car is registered today.
