Well I'm not too sure why i don't have one of these already, guess i just never got around to doing it.

So here's my car, always updated. It's my project/Daily.

I think I'll pay tribute to my first car though, It was awesome, got my places and made me love EF's...:





And the best part about the car... It's carb's <3<3 (Oh how i miss my carb's...)



And so i saw this 4wd sedan advertised on ebay... It was actually the same one of which i went to check out BEFORE i bought my first sedan, but i couldn't get in contact with the seller. Seeing it again for sale was like it was meant to be....

Pics from the auction:






So i talked with the seller a bit, and the day before i was to get on my plane the seller call's and tells me he's hit a supermarket trolley and the bumper/foglights all busted and its got heavy scratches down one side. :/

But the tickets were booked, and all this damage was just bargaining power for me.

So i get there and this is sitting in the car lot...



I don't see how someone could treat a car that bad to make it look like that Neutral

So, although being hesitant i picked it up for pretty cheap and drove it all the way home (20~ hours drive) with no problems, except for a bad wheel alignment lol. I finally get it cleaned up, and it doesn't look so bad:







So the hunt for factory pieces to get this car looking descent again had begun.





Also got some leather work done, from this:


To this:



Almost a year fighting with my states transport agency, it becomes registered!!!! And the lowering FINALLY begins.


And this is how it stands now Smile




More shots to come, i've lowered it a bit more since then.

UPDATE/spoiler... This is what it looks like now:

Hmmm, exhaust is just like the wagon.....still not sure what i'm going to do for a gas tank.  The wagon's now got a leak, and the new one i bought for the sedan last year blocks the driveshaft.  Thanks for the pictures of that for me.

No probs.  What about cutting the regular sedan tank and welding a around the driveshaft so theres no interference?

I'm pretty sure it was only few model's, possibly 4wd only that recline flat. I think one of my brochures claim it's a bed feature lol. Maybe for little asian's.
