1979 626 in Beverly Hills!

Recommended Posts

Here's something to drool at:

or go here if it disappears:

easily the best 2nd gen Capella on craigslist on the west coast of (if not in all of) the US since mine! Weird to find it in Beverly... being pampered. Whoever's selling it must've loved it dearly (yes, the original owner).

 

Somebody get it! I'm too broke! XD

Oooh. May we have pictures??

Well there were plenty of pics in the Ebay listing, but yes I'll be taking new pics for sure. I will document all the mods I do along the way. I'm going to make it a Bosozoku car!

Try not to ruin it too much, please!!!!!  Sorry, I am biased about cars retaining their exterior originality!

As soon as I see Boso cars I think of this.

Well, maybe I won't make this car Bosozoku, but I really do want to make a crazy Boso car out of something else some day.

Stick a V8 in it like this one but keep it sleeper spec on the outside!:thumbsup:  That's 5.0L injected Aussie motor in Luke's one.  That should get people's attention over there!

The V8 will go in my Opel (it's smog exempt). Not going to do any permanent mods on my 626.

And here's a token pic from my phone.

Ah yes, smog. This is why I left California! Your car is awesome!!!

I was just in LA nearly a month ago. I went to this: https://www.automobiledrivingmuseum.org/event/jdm2018/

JDM at the ADM on September 29th (my car was next to the black one in the first photo foreground)... I should probably post more pics (and of my other car show adventure)... :sweat: I'm not on here often enough.

There was only one other Capella there (a first generation/early 70's one) and it wasn't even at the same part of the show (it was bigger than you see here). It was a blast anyway, especially when I told people I'd just driven 850 miles (1400km) to be there.

Next time I trek down, you should join me!! We could totally show up those millions of 510s (and the accompanying Bluebirds) that seem to hang out at these shows!

I probably would have gone to that show, but I was out of town at that time, as I often am. I was also gone for the JCCS.
