Am I mad, thinking of acquiring a Matiz !
OK call me barking mad, but thinking of a stupid project to use some of the goodies I have lying around. :wacko:
Perfect sleeper project if fed with my goodies from the Wizzard of Nos. :ninja:
R2 is too rare in the UK to play with, the WRX is just the WRX -can't disguise the burble.bonnet scoop etc so thinking what would people not expect as a donor car. A shopping trolley
Had them in my pre Japanese car life. Have had someone I know suggest an Axiom/other Microcar .
All 500 cc of them.
Love the idea... the Matiz however! They're horrendous little things hehe
As standard - My mom had one, and when they went on holiday, they got to a hill and started up it... it just got slower and slower until they had to give up and turn around haha
Jay's boss has a green Matiz which everyone calls the 'pea'. The brakes are appalling, but he said if you need to suddenly brake, just slam on the A/C you'll stop dead hahahaha
Obviously wouldn't apply to a project car, but that's why I'm not that keen on the Matiz! hehe
Thoughts at present depend on whether I need another set of tyres on the WRX, want to stay jap but finding something at the right price and under 1000cc not easy.
Don't want Move,Wagon R, will need something a tad more aerodynamic. and easy to get spares for.
if you decide to go italian, i can help, i was planning an uno turbo conversion in my cinquecento a while back and have a lot of pics for what needs doing, i did loads to mine before it went to scrappers, 15" alloys, lowered - 40mm, braided brake hoses and uprated discs n pads, stripped the whole thing inside apart from dash and even with the 900cc engine it hadled ace and was still quite nippy
