Car Of The Day: February 20, 2011
Today's car of the day is Tomica's 2006 Daihatsu Mira
The Daihatsu Mira (also known as the Cuore, Domino, and more recently Charade), is a kei car-type vehicle built by the Japanese car maker Daihatsu. It comes with a variety of options and chassis variations, with the latest variant having four models: "Mira", "Mira AVY", "Mira Gino" and "Mira VAN". The Mira is the latest successor to the line of cars begun with the Daihatsu Fellow of 1966 and was originally introduced as the commercial version of the Cuore. Outside of Japan, the Mira has also been offered with an 850 cc engine. In Australia, the two-seater version was known as the Handivan and was later renamed as just Handi.

Here's a recent purchase from my day out with bunkerjim a few weeks ago. We went around to all the stores (K-Mart, Walmart, Target, and Toys R Us) and managed to come away with some very nice cars.
The L251 Mira, unrelated to the earlier 200-series, is the most recent generation of the car. The car is produced as the Mira in Japan. The L251 platform was also shared with the most recent version of the Daihatsu Charade in the United Kingdom. Elsewhere this was badged and sold as the Cuore.
The set this one comes with serves as the background for the images. I really like the corrugated garage door- it works well and looks nice.
