Hi all,My capri is getting close to being finished so i thought i would start on this.I remember these cars when they  were brand new.Toyota,Mazda and the Datsuns,were the funny looking cars from Japan.Now adays they arn't so common.Any ways here is my next project.First job was to open the hood(bonnet),and cut out the engine and back of the frame.Enough of the blah blah here is some photos...

That's wild! I love these off the wall Pro Streets! Reminds me of some of my 1:1 cars I built back in the day. Keep up the great work and I'm waiting to see more.

Very cool work so far I'm loving it. The first few yrs of the janpanese cars had style in my opinion before the cookie cutter 80's came along.

Man that is cool. Mainly because I'm doing one very similar to it, got rid of the fender flares, tube chassis, and a supra 2jz. I'll post pics tonight to compare haha, good work though.
