When I first saw that comment I thought it was saying that there wasn't any big bodykit on it and it was a bit lost in translation, unitl I saw the pictures of the wide arches and bumper skirts crafted out of metal!!!
This car really is an example in what a 'complete' modified car is - no stick on bits, no bolt on tat - a lot of it looks hand crafted and the results are stunning!!
I also love the fact that the owner isn't shy about giving it some stick - as the videos show!!
:eek:

I thought the Manta A body couldn't be improved.

Takes a brave man to try.

But that works!

At first I was thinking if you got crazy money to spend donig al lthat personally i'd prefer to chuck a dirty reconditioned sky or supra engine in one 9if u got that kinda money) but thinking bout it thats a perfect engine to put in cause being a volvo engine gonna be very very reliable. That means you can thrash it about and have fun in it without a rebuild every week. stunning car, i have no idea how he made all that out of metal, didn't even know you could do it that well without big machinery and tools. How would of he had dun it dyou reckon? shape the bumpers and skrits etc so perfectly liek that?
