V8-Powered Aussie Celica in Drag

Check out this angry daruma Celica from Australia, with tube framed everything and and a V8 where the firewall should be. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but you have to admire the craftsmanship. Take a peek under the sheetmetal after the jump.

    Great workman ship, but I can’t help but feel what a waste of a classic japanese car. I would personally rather see a rotary in this thing.

    Then again, I’m never a big fan of all out drag cars using classic body styles. The mods required for drag racing often detract from the beautiful lines of a car.
