Strange title i know.. But just wondering if anyone else has any cars or peoples cars, that inspore them to mod their own.

 

My last car I wanted to be a ST170 replica, got pretty much all the way there, when the fuel system packed up!

 

this one, well I ike it as it is, but after seeing Lenny's car recently with it Lowered, and New Alloys etc... I'm liking the look.

 

Anyone else have anything similar??

Ah lads ye are way too kind. Thanks very much.
Takes time and this month has been most stressfull,
My Hero was once my local ford dealership where I was among friends,
Now its run my horny old maingey labradours who will ride anything that walks in the door.


I'm inspired by the new econetic fiesta:
Here's a prototype image

Track2.jpg

I much prefer to build than to buy,
its way more fun.

Right now if I had the space id purchase a 1989 volkswagon Bora diesel with 2.5" exhaust
Spray it chocolate brown, slap on a set of coilovers, with some deep dish chrome rims and excessive negative camber you know;
Have the rims facing up like a sky dish.
Then sand the bonnet down to bare metal,
Pour on some beer& rock salt leave it for 3 days then wash off.

All for under 2,000 euro and looks the bad !Removed! business.
Park it anywhere, wash it once a year.

+3 to Lenny!

 

Although I keep looking to see what I can do next, then look at my bank account, then look at the wife... then get told politely where I can plant my idea!
