    this isnt your ordinary torago...... infact it isnt even a torago at all its an imported toyota esteema witch is turbo diesel, its been resprayed in old school escort green, massive body kit sides have been cut down due to scraping, it has imported 18" wheels, it has pod to help the turbo breathe, its been retrimmed, has isotta sports wheel and gear knob looks like auto but is 5 spd, has single neon to light the footwell, has sony comp head unit, focal splits up front and focal coaxs in the rear, the middle seats have been removed.

    Umm .. I am going to get flamed for this, but this is my other project car ... And yes it is a Hyundai.... Crossed with an evo.. It is putting out about 245kw at the wheels at the moment...

    So yeah, try not to flame too much... But this was the first brand new car I ever bought back in 1997. As much as people diss Hyundai, it has never set me back for any problems.. No electrical problems (came stock with all power options). Only ever had to replace the clutch once, and change the wheel bearings at the front...

    As the engine was designed by Mitsubishi, I decided that last year I was going to transplant the Evo 4G63 (I imported the US version).. So she is now turbo and shocks a lot of people on the streets...

    I just can't understand why some people have a white steering wheel. This one looks like it could be "spray & wipe" but I think still totally impractical.
    Other than that, it doesn't look too bad for a van.

    Van looks like a big waist of money too me. If he put that money into a commie, you would have a pretty sweet car with performance to back it up.

    89vn your other car is mad i like it honestly i think if any won has the courage to do something different like you and my brother in law i say go for it u see heaps of worked commies around but how many cars like urs or big green vans.

    i think anyone that is closed minded enough to say that commies are the only good cars are idiots in there opinion they like them more power to them but to say they are the best is just stupid.

    i just like cars i dnt care weather there "ricers" blown big block american muscle or good old aussie beasts. i like drifting i like drags and i just like cars in general so any one closed minded enough to just say one sort is best is crazy.

    everyone is entitled to there own opinion i posted this for people like me who just like cars and to see what other people have seen that they like that i might have not, it wasnt posted to hear replys on the van

    although thanks and for disses your more than welcome to have your opinion just dont voice it on this thread because it is an open minded thread for open minded people look and if you dont like what you see dont bother posting.

    cheers everyone

    Thanks mate ... I am the same .. I love cars for cars, and am also a bike rider (I have a GSXR1000 2004 model) I will attach a photo of that too since it is still on topic... I am running the Sonata on 20psi and have re-built the engine to boost it up even more... Will be finishing off the engine stuff maybe next month and will boost it to 25psi and dyno it to see what its power is.. I tell myself when I get to 300kw I will stop ... So we will see....

    I really wanted to get a V8 vn, but I wanted something my fiance could drive, and something that wasn't going to kill me with petrol, so I could use it as a daily instead of the sonata...

    Stock ..

    To new exhaust & clean look with no decals ...

    To how she is now with new decals, new chip & program, smaller front sproket, various other carbon fibre parts and the 300km/hr engine cut taken off...

    Yeah no real rev limiter on bikes...

    But yeah, that is 300k's... I can do about 140k's in first and then I still have plenty of gears to go through ... :)

    I have only been above 300 a couple of times, but that kind of speed is just for the track ... Not really a big fan of putting her up on 1 wheel either... Sounds a little boring, but I don't really like risking things.. I have seen too many accidnets from that kind of stuff ....

    ok cool

    my old bike wasnt capable of going that fast anyway, well it mightav if the gearing was set up 4 it, but it was only a dirt bike, gives an awesome adrenaline rush around dirt tracks though, had 2 take breaks every now and then so my heart dont explode, lol, was good fun though, that revved tonnes high too

    i wanna go 4 a ride on a road bike, should be fun, especially now im up in adelaide there isnt many places 2 ride dirt bikes
