Jester II

1996 Eunos Roadster VR Limited Combination A

Bought in 2001 Sold in 2005. 

This was my 2nd Roadster, and was my dream Roadster since I bought my first Roadster. I had always loved this colour combination. Much more so than the UK version the Merlot. That had soft grey leather, whereas the VR Ltd had cream leather, cream door cards and cream hood. Combined with the Enkei alloys and gorgeous Art Vin Rouge paint I considered this to be one of THE best mk1's.
