The 1990 Gen 1 Pajero is a great vehicle,
I think it still looks really nice, has plenty of presence, I owned one during my college days and loved it, it was very light, economical to run (diesel was cheap those days), had plenty of presence, and was very very reliable,
They have all the creature comforts and luxuries that one would want, i.e. power steering, air con, power windows etc, if you can find an Exceed in auto then theres nothing better in my opinion,
extremely comfy, and even the parts are pretty cheap, as long as the engine is good you don't really need much other than suspension related components which are widely available in Karachi and cheap as chips.
In terms of looks, the Gen2 is far more modern looking, but the Gen 1 has the essence of a good, classic offroader, square, straight lines, big round lights, and plenty of chrome.
