I love the rising sun roof job. I'm such a sucker for old skool JDM styling.

i love it as well, i think if the whole car was white it would look awesomer. my great uncle is restoring a 85 cause that was his wifes car and he feels that if he restores it, it will make his wife happy while she rests in the afterlife.

Not bad shape, I reckon it needs a window tint, it really works well with the blacked out pillars on the SDX models like on my white car....

I tinted the green car since the photo was taken and its not the same, I am thinking about painting the pillar and door surrounds to bring it up to SDX trim (seeing as how everything else is)

I dont mind the rims..

I am not sold on the rear wing tho, but thats just me, I take them off my cars that had them from the factory.

Also I didnt realise the burgundy interior was available on series II cars, I thought they reverted to grey.

Yea the spoiler was an addition got it off another 626 like mine, but i see these on GD models as well i just put it on there cos it looked really bare, fading paint and all same for the rims, at least it takes peoples eyes off the dings, an yea i luv that interior! best colour match with silver i reckon, dash is going to be changed to a greyish/blue same style tho after i do the turbo conversion.

Ohhh pretty silver. Reminds me of Leev's car with the little dent on the front quarter panel and all. :P Love how the yard is mowed to perfection and the interior is in immaculate shape. The yard and car go very well together. I'm gonna save those pics. Beautiful imagery.

Thanks DJ i cant wait to get pics up when the green Turbo is finished its a looker, the silver ones paint is dying ever so slowly :unsure: (on roof and hatch) but with a well positioned angle and light, click! i enjoyed taking those photos the interior comes up really good in the pics(doesnt seem like that to me tho,well to my eyes lol) but it was a really clear day the lawn just mowed, car just washed brought out the blue sky with some clouds in the windows of the GC and body.i wish it would jus stay in this condition forever! :happy:

I was absolutely in love with it until I saw the wheels, can and spoiler. Truly an incredibly body shape and potential, but if your happy then so be it.

Well i spose it beats havin stocko wheels on it (i hate that pursuit rims look btw), spoiler was for control at high speeds obviously not just for show, and the cannon is to stop restricting the exhaust flow (resonator is next) Honestly if these cars are not the luxury models they look fairly shitty to me. i had a stock model it was an 83 and i was turned off it alot becouse of the interior and such, those ones go to rally imo! You know how it is, one mans trash is another mans treasure, even if the other man didnt throw it away. My green 626 turbo is the real eye candy.

Trust me you dont the wing for control at high speeds....I've had my turbo up over 200 (125mph) and never noticed any stability problems except the friggin road I was driving on!
