Default JDM Eunos Roadsters?

Can anyone please send me a good link so I can read up on the JDM Eunos Roadster?
I am interested in the NA versions and need to know more before possibly placing an offer.
Alternatively, if you know about the cars, please enlighten me.
Thanks.

They are functionally identical to the USDM models except for being right hand drive. They don't make more power or have any cool options we didn't get. '94-up cars are functionally better in every way than '93-under cars.

Having driven a right drive car quite a bit here in the states I can say that the novelty wears off for the driver pretty quickly. Forget passing on a two lane road ever again and seeing around oncoming cars to make left turns is impossible.

Thanks Sixshooter. The one I'm looking at is left hand drive. She's a beauty. I cannot find a link on the internet that has any history on the JDM's.

This link answers some of my questions about Eunos Roadsters. I'll stick with the US version. Thanks again!

Dang! The car I was bidding on sold for $15,100 on eBay. Way more than I expected.

Way more than it was worth for a novelty item that really isn't rare at all. Quite a few RHD cars are entering Canada from the far east these days. More and more are ending up down here. I saw a twin turbo Toyota Aristo on the road a couple of weeks ago.

The black Miata was naturally aspirated but the burgundy one was turbocharged and was pretty quick. The R32 belongs to a buddy. We took turns driving and made the 8 hour trip from Tampa to the North Georgia mountains a few different times. That was a few years ago and it was putting down 733whp to all four wheels back then. Pretty fun. It was eventually wrecked and he is moving the components over to another R32 chassis being built with a cage for track use.

The only thing about having a right hand drive car is .... if you get pulled over the officer is really really confused at least in PA since there is not that many around. I was in my buddys 240 that he converted to right hand drive out of necessity because he but a 350z motor in it, and we got pulled over for some nonsense after leaving a car meet. IT was pretty darn funny. BUUUT it was pretty cool to run around in for a while.
