    "Hakoste" the blend of Hakosuka and Stagea

    Introducing...the "Hakoste" the blend of Hakosuka and Stagea.

    Now don't get me wrong, I usually like to see interesting blends of cars like the semi-usual S13 with S30 facelift. I commend their hard work and (sometimes)craftsmanship.

    This is an interesting mixture however, my mind can't help thinking "What a waste of Hakosuka parts <_< "

    I have mixed feelings on this one. One thing for sure though... the fact that Japanese old skool cars are gaining even more popularity!

    What do you guys think?

    I'll let the pics do the rest of the talking:

    I think that is ingenuity at its best. And have to commend them about how they went about it, and how the lines just line up just right all the way around (even the taillights are lined up just right).

    yah...i dont even know how the tail lights would work...because there's a separation line from the body to the hatch and the tail lights don't have that separation...

    They already put THAT much work into it, they might as well have completely done away with the stock tail lights and rework it with new metal instead of (as you said) painted over the stock ones.

    Seeing this strange combination of old and new made me remember this wierd blend of '49 Ford and '90 Thunderbird from the early 90's, although the wagon is not nearly as awkward. I like how they continued the Hako body lines throught the doors and rear quarters. It helps tie the two very different styles together unlike the '49/T-Bird. The sad thing is that you can actually buy a kit to create your own version of the Ford monstrosity.

    YUCK!!! That Thunderbird thing is disgusting!


    I think the only Stagea facelift that works is this:


    only because the lines seem to work better and the two cars are, time wise, closer so it looks more natural.

    what troubles me is imagining those huge rims and rubber band tires on u.s. roads :shock:
