Hello everyone.

I have sold my Honda car collection and decided to concentrate on racing just one car. Of course it had to be a Honda, and I hope you all like it. I pick it up next week.

Attached are some pictures, and a write up done by a motorsport magazine from the previous owner. I know it's not a Honda engine powering it - but give me time and a B series will find it's way in.

James.

Here is the article outlining the build up of the car. I receive all the body molds and it also came with the custom built trailer as well. I am very happy with it. The engine is rebuilt and it has a new torsen LSD. Power is 150hp and weight is 550kg. Log booked as a Group 2A sports car.

Well done, awesome little car. I saw it recently up here at Lakeside racing, certainly gets up and boogies!

I heard it goes quite well. I have an over 3000km round trip to get it, but the owner has been very helpful and informative about the car. You don't get much of a race car for around $10,000.00 AUD these days and I got the trailer, all the molds and spares too.

I sold my collection due to illness. The doctors have given me the all clear to go racing now so I figured I am too busy back at work to build one - so I just bought one already done! :D

I love the fact it uses alot of standard components from other makes in the suspension etc so not too expensive to maintain too.

James.

I wondered why it was on the Diecast shop signs too, seeing the rest are available models. That would be darn cool if it has!!

The guy owns motorfocus who owns the car. He may have a model made of it but most likley a photoshop. Great car though.

Unfortunatley I had to let the sale go. I really wanted it but after I sold the Hondas, I became very ill and my now ex partner left so had to sell my house too so I could be closer to my family and treatment. That was a year ago and I am pleased to say I am back and my health is fixed after treatment.

I tried to stay away from JDM classics, but I ended up "rescueing" a genuine JDM FC RX7 which I will start a build thread on shortly.

James.
