How many kidneys does a human body have, anyway? We’re car nuts, not doctors. Anyway, here’s a trio of interesting finds that crossed our paths over the long weekend.
First up, a kenmeri Nissan Skyline GT-R clone from Bring A Trailer, done up in tasteful vintage-style racing livery. It was brought in by a La Jolla, California luxury car dealership that tossed it around the track a few times. BAT attracts a more, shall we say, traditional vintage car enthusiast, and the resulting comments are, um, interesting.
Next, a very pretty 7720-mile 1977 Toyota Celica RA29 liftback on eBay. Claimed to be one of the mythical OOOL cars (One-Owner Old Lady), it can be yours for just $4500. A nice price, considering that the 6900-mile Honda CR-X HF sold for $5855. Though it does beg the question, how much did the seller pay that OOOL?
And finally, something planted firmly in the WTF category. This ankle-chopping gurachan-style Mazda RX-7 was spotted on Goo.net by our friends at Retro Classics. Question: can it still be considered gurachan if the car was clearly inspired by the American IMSA series RX-7? (Cover car in JNC Issue 3, by the way!) Perhaps imusa would be more fitting.
