After riding this coupe X-1 · L for about four years, after passing through the Sunny 1000, I purchased the second cherry coupe, the X-1 · R. This car has been in operation for about 6 years and has plenty of enjoyment in running a lightweight body front-wheel drive vehicle.
He was very active as a normal foot. Mr. Kobayashi, who likes the style, seemed to have longed for a car with over fenders, and the X-1 · R fulfilled that desire.
Later, when I was changing cars from the Showa era with the Carina Sedan and the 117 Coupe, I came across the third Cherry Coupe, the X-1 ・ R.
After purchase, just like the previous Cherry Coupe, it is always the same on hot, cold and rainy days as a daily foot.
When the Nagano Olympics were held, I ran on snowy roads and watched the game. During hobbies such as skiing and mountain climbing, the luggage space where a lot of luggage can be loaded was useful.
It's only natural that the deeper your involvement with the X-1R, the more you want to maintain its appearance and mechanics. It was a restoring of that feeling.
