1970s Celica coupe (ratted and cool looking)

Roll Cage, side pipe, suspension mods for racing, and the interesting molder and tinted clear plastic piece on the fron that masks the headlights. How is this thing legal? Totally fun looking rat rod.

I like finding old beatup eco cars. Really rather see this then a new corvette. Replacement unpainted fender, racing wheels I like this one.

I have never seen a 2nd-gen Accent hatchback, only 2 sedans. A white one in my hometown and a green one (which I was not able to take pictures) near my mother's neighborhood.

15 degrees Celsius in Porto Alegre right now. Not that hot?
It is as far south as South Africa or the south of Australia, and it is mid-winter there.

Don't get fooled by the sun shining. It's winter here right now. And a short-haired dog like Vanessa is more sensitive to cold weather.

It looks like what Mad Max would drive if he had a long commute.

The guy who owns and builds it LOOKS a little like he walked off a Mad Max set. Always has a drift looking rated cool project car.
