    Hi!

    This is my project.

    It´s build on a tight budget, so the spec is not very awsome:)

    It startet out with a car I just had in my back yard.
    The first year,2009, everything on the car was stock. (2.0l 136hp).

    paintet it:

    And a video when it was stock:

    In July 2010 I swaped in a c20let engine from Calibra Turbo.

    Added a new front in August 2010.

    Then in January the car needed a overhauling.
    I also manage to get a brother to my drift car.
