    What Inspired You????

    In the years I've put into this hobby (older cars - not just JNC) I've often found owners inspired by another car, or another cars build. So, without posting EXCESS photos... (TRY to keep it to 4 or less IF YOU CAN) what cars inspired you to make your car... yours????????



    In my case.... I had 2 E7 Toyotas that inspired my build.......

    This one........ 2 door coupe



    and this one..... bumperless




    Were my inspirations to build this





    So... What inspired you??

    Re: What Inspired You????

    I haven't actually completed a full build yet, however, some of my inspiration for getting into classics/antiques were...

    I was watching the history channel back in middle school and fell in love with the 1907 Silver Ghost


    Then I saw an some Rat Rod cruising down the street on my way to school. I don't have a pic of the exact car, but it was similar to this, but the front stretched stretched


    As for the Mistress, 'Oracles' is partially my inspiration.

    No cars started my inspiration. My inspiration came from buying an 81 Corolla to get around town in and I loved it. After that I did all my research and have went from there.

    I still to this day remember the Honda N360 my nanna had when I was little, I loved that car. When she passed away in '97 I started looking for one to restore in her honour. I finally found one worth saving at the end of last year, ok'd it with the wife, and then went on a road trip to pick it up from the other side of Australia.

    Here's a pic of me washing the one my nanna had (aged about 7)



    And here's a pic of mine, loaded on the trailer ready to come to it's new home for a full restoration.

    that is real.
    I had to really think about it too.

    I never fell for cars. My mom the fantasy lady (not extreme mind you) had a 69 mustang that bent in half at the door pillars and broke the valley out of the 289.

    not exactly inspiring first cars..convertible or not.

    my neighbor rebuilt stuff right out of junk piles, american classics, bubbly fendered looking milk vans, modern power plants (whatever modern 1983 had to offer..always v8 variants)

    I never forgot the first fail, the 69 mustang...my neghbors work.. my dad is a truck driver, millions of hard miles.

    all machinery sucks...and I truly despise "j-tin".. however truthful the word is.

    I opted to be optimistic with the facts I learned...
    ended up in a non-siamese bored liquid cooled, self balancing,AWD ten geared crazy chassis'd subaru...
    and most don't know why to this day. I used to be the nut with the 70mph sideways v8 rattling windows.
    :lol:
