I did them in paintbrush and photoshop; they took about 3 weeks start to finish. Had to wait for LEDs to ship and for me to think of how the hell I was going to do it. Another DaSlayer 1986 Hyundai Pony post Custom hand-made cold air intake and K&N masked taillights (done by me) H4 conversion

Read 1986 Hyundai Pony reviews from real owners. Find out what they're like to drive, and what problems they have. The first Hyundais were beyond awful. My neighbours had an 85 Excel. They constantly worked on that car. I don't think they ever drove it.

Every generation has cars that for some reason just never quite hit classic status. While popular when new, they stayed on the sidelines as flashier and more stylish cars become the poster cars. Studebakers, four-door '55 Chevrolets, four-door just about anything really. But those cars are still cool, and still classics. And many of them are now harder to find and rarer than the supercars from the same year. Like this one. It was one of the best-selling cars in Canada when it was new, but you won't see another one on the road today. It's our autoTRADER.ca Find of the Week, a 1986 Hyundai Pony.

Hyundai Reveals Electric Kona, With Up to 470 km Range

  Hyundai Reveals Electric Kona, With Up to 470 km Range Hyundai has just launched the Kona Electric. The electric subcompact will come with two powertrain options: a lower-power, smaller battery version, and a high-power, big battery option that offers nearly 500 km in rated driving range. The Kona Electric is based on the new Kona subcompact crossover, but gets some styling changes to reflect the electric underpinnings. The big one is in the nose where the gas Kona's large grille and hoodline scoop are gone. In their place is a mostly closed-off nose with a grille port door for the charge port. It gives the Kona a more mature look that's less funky than the gas Kona. It likely improves the aerodynamics and appeals more to buyers of the more expensive electric. The electric Kona shares a 2,600 mm wheelbase with the gas model, but at 1,570 mm tall and 4,180 mm long is 20 mm taller and 15 mm longer than the gas car. The Kona Electric's base powertrain uses a 39.2 kWh lithium polymer battery and a 135 hp electric motor. That allows for a 9.3 second run to 100 km/h, but more importantly a 300 km range. That's not the Canadian cycle or the US EPA rating that we're used to, but it's not the traditional (and very optimistic) NEDC European rating either. It's the projected range using the newer WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light-duty vehicle Testing Procedure) cycle, which is intended to be more accurate to real-world driving than the NEDC test.

Entirely original and unrestored, Se Young Kim's 1986 Hyundai Pony is a time capsule back to the time of Bryan Adams and Fraggle Rock. Later Hyundais weren’t much better, and would be named under some sort of irony-based scheme.

The Pony II was launched in 1982. It wasn't a radical departure in styling or shape over the car that came before it, but it made one big move. It was the first Korean car to come to Canada, arriving in 1984. But the Pony never officially made it to the US, due to emissions rules.

It was a simple car with a choice of simple engines. Hyundai arrived expecting to sell 5,000 cars per year, and they topped 20,000 the first year. It was in the mix for best-selling car in the country in just a couple of years, capturing market share at a rate that far exceeded other foreign automakers.

The Pony offered multiple engine choices, all small four-cylinder carbureted engines. This one has the more powerful one, the 1.6L that made 74 hp. Not a big number, especially backed by a three-speed automatic, but this car only weighed 1,085 kg. So there isn't much weight to push around. And it was rear-wheel drive, for optimal handling and performance. Okay, maybe not exactly optimal, but hey. It was the early 1980s.

Hyundai Exec Sheds Light on Production Santa Cruz Pickup

  Hyundai Exec Sheds Light on Production Santa Cruz Pickup Similar to the way that the Honda Ridgeline is a Pilot with a bed, it looks like the Hyundai Santa Cruz will be a Tucson with a bed.We weren’t sure what to expect from the upcoming Hyundai pickup truck that was confirmed for production last year. The only basis for speculation was the Hyundai Santa Cruz “crossover truck concept” that debuted at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. The Santa Cruz was a bold, edgy concept that didn’t quite look like any Hyundai production model which one could argue is a good thing. Now it seems that the truck will finally go into production soon and will arrive in showrooms in 2020, according to a recent report.

So anyway, here’s something incredibly rare and practically mythical: the most perfect Hyundai Pony in all of Canada. I found it quite by accident. “Holy Snickerdoodles!” (let’s pretend) I said, “That’s gotta be the nicest Pony on the planet!” This car was purchased in Vancouver in 1986 , and has the

This was a simple car, sold for around $6,000 when new. Compare that with the average new car price that year of $14,000. It has 1980s features, like a manual choke. Which the seller recently had to explain to the young tech at the dealership, who had never seen one before. This GLS has cloth seats though. And a tape deck!

This 1986 Pony has had only two owners since it rolled off of the showroom floor of the Langley Hyundai dealer. The current owner has had it since 1998, when it was given to him by an aunt who could no longer drive it. This car doesn't have power steering, after all. It's now up for sale because the current owner is also giving up the keys.

Despite wearing Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires, this car hasn't been driven in the winter. It hasn't been driven much at all, having just 106,500 km on the odometer, and it has been stored in an underground garage. It comes with the original brochure and manual, as well as the toolkit. Everything you'll need for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2035. It does have some damage around the trunk lock, where someone tried to break in. If you can imagine that someone would try to steal a car like this.

The owner has had fun with the car over the years, prodding Mustang owners with his own Pony car. Showing that tongue in cheek ownership experience, this car wears a My Little Pony bumper sticker.
