No your mistaking us for the Americans. We dont usually do the big diameter wheel thing that's just one of the few that have tried to copy the American style. We are the ones that have totally bad taste in "reasonably" size wheels that are incredibly ugly and dont suit the cars we put them on. There is a difference.

I admire the 80s custom scene for what they tried, but what's with panelling the windows?9d94741dd27fb17e29fb7c7bf8393f25.jpg

Who of thought the 70/80's custom scene would be onto big rear rake before RedBull Racing thought about it a few years ago in F1 - can't imagine the ground effects on the Anglia are as good though!

I actually like that! I would probably change the grill and lights though but it looks awesome from the side!

Hmmm, maybe if they were tracks and not a tandem axle?

Here's one for Col.b7d9ff1b3157993787e8f641b3d3ab61.jpg

What shocks me most about cars like this appearing in this thread is that they were onc fashionable and people thought they looked good. I sincerely hope my own modified car doesn't date so badly!

Because nice wheels, 7in headlights, Standard Mk1 gauges, indicators and bumpers are so hard to come by? Or just cheaper to use what you have in your shed? And then slap 35 thousand bucks on it for good measure!

Oi! Ya cheeky pup, I don't have a front bumper.:bitch:

Its nowhere near the same thing! You are going for that classic 5 hole rally front look. With proper sized headlights and indicators. He used 4 in lights, has filled in his indicator holes and added tear-drop ones on the grill and then also doesn't have a rear bumper either! Then he's moved the original side fuel filler to the back using an Australian Mk2 drop tank underneath and has the number plate light just hanging there! Dashpads arent necessary either apparently.

I like the colour though. The body mods, meh, not my style.

I wouldn't say they were any style.

I like his dash vents though. I cant seem to get a set of decent ones. Its ironic the one original thing is something that's really hard to find in good condition and no need to be original on that car.

If green Mk1s with funny lights and wheels are your thing how about this one Cuban style?
