I was lookin for a nostalgic japanese car has a project for 8 years now since I was lookin for something ''different'' then 240z,corolla and 510... and I really cant afford my dream right now
, an Hakozuka! Nothing really caught my eyes since last fall, I found this cute kujira for sale at about 15min from my house. But I was unable to buy it since my Mx-5 timming belt cost me more then I expected to repair... I was so mad, but had to forget it. Time passed, summer come, and I restarted my research for the ''holygrail''... Found a couple of Cressida,Supra,FB Rx-7 but they where all overpriced or simply, NOT FOR SALE!
One day, I was on my delivery run for my job and took a shortcut for my last customer. And then, parked between 2 huge RV's...BAM!!! The white KUJIRA was there with a ''For sale'' in the windshield! A kid was there lookin a it,taking pics and he told me he'll come back the next day to buy it. I told myself: ist now or never man... I ran to the closest bank and got the full money in hand to buy it right now!
This how she was sitting when I found her.
the exterior seem flawless but I found some patch of fiberglass and riveted sheet metal when inspected it more closely. But the job was quite well done...
the interior is realy clean... except the floor mat under the driver foot and the cracked dash pad
. Notice the stick... W50 5spd transmission from a Celica.
...more to come!
