Here’s my story

In 1985 I brought my own first car a Second hand Orange MC GT-B Series from 1972

This is first picture after I brought it.



This is a quite good condition MC. lots of them are got tune and ruin in just 2 years. This one doesn’t have any modification at all. But this car doesn’t have show car condition, there some dents and scratch and also engine needs some good service and tune up also interior is a bit ripped but it’s only 3,000$ so I brought it.

After coming back home I start search parts in my storage.

I found this Prime steering wheel and amazingly I found replacement MC front Seat as well!



I bought New full MC first series Bumper, prime wheel with sport tires and New bonnet.



I also bought new exhaust tip from friend.



It’s look okay. And I did Tune up motor. So it run great now.

Next Sunday I went to track day and have a lot of fun. I went to track day almost every week.



I own that car for 7 years. With 25000miles on the clock and a good service by myself. Until It get stole and after 2days It’s get recover…

In this condition.



Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Then I tow a car back to garage. I start get some parts out.



The body is fixable but Chassis is lot mess even I can fix that, MC might not pass the strict Vehicle inspection in Valo city. So it’s went to breaker and got written off.



Still more to come.

added through 7 minutes

After MC Got written off. I need a car to got to work and I want Car that more economical and looks good Also fast and Reliable.

I start to search from local magazine. I found a lot of Baiern and Nouns but I’m no interest of those at all. So I kept finding and not so long I saw this.


(I still keep the Ad that I cut from magazine. LOL)

It’s SE with 2.3Liters engine. Normal one only has 2.1Liters. I thought hmm … if the owner wants to sell their car. Why don’t they use a better picture than that! It’s rubbish! I can’t see anything from that picture. But Anyway It’s worth calling. So I went to see the car.

The owner uses this car as everyday car and also seems to love his car very much. Quattro is in great condition. 4,500$ is a good price. He said there some dents but no worth worries because it just small dents in front bumper. I test drive it. And I think it’s a bit low on power. And Handling isn’t perfect But it’s bargain. if you don't buy it from private owner, It can be 5,500$. So I Brought it.



After arrive at my home. I put the car on the ramps to inspect Rust and Suspension also that new exhaust.



I saw No rust And Anything that serious. Just some leak from the Shock absorber which is what I can feel from test drive. So I just need to change Shock absorber.

Then I inspect the Engine. The air filter is so old and almost clogs. Also turbo is worn down.



I immediately ordered needed parts from my friend that open the parts shop. A pair of rear shock absorber, Air filter and Turbo. For Just 750$.

Interior is in great condition as old owner said. Its leather interior is absolute no tearing at all.




Next holiday. After some Work on the car (Just Suspension and Engine. I Had Routine work to do.) I went to track day. With my Audi ready for it first track day of it life.



Powahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Handling is so great after that new pair of rear shock absorbers is putting on. And it’s now really had Real Powahhhhhhhhh !!!!

Winter mode should include adjusted coilovers to raise the ride height. I take it you've never driven in the winter.

6 months after that I start thinking, Why I don’t build my own track day car. I can’t use everyday car as track day car. If its engine blow up or it crash. What I’m going to do? I need a car to go to work and I can’t find a new car immediately. I don’t want to go to work by bus or subway, So I made a Proper track day car.

I start search in magazine. I want a Coupe that cheap, Fast and also fun to drive.

And I found this




It's 1972 Brazilian Chevy Opala With damage on the front and the back. As you can see Before it crash it is a lemon already. (Wrong color panel) And it illegal to drive on the road, It's Runs but it fail latest car inspection in 2009. But owner want only 50$ for it. That's right 50$ Cheapest car I ever buy.

Previous owner Put twin carb in it, Only that is worth more than 50$. The front chassis is doesn't that bad.



The rear too, I can fix that.



Start Striping the car



Finish chassis fixing, start paint work.


I choose original black color from 1975 SS. After paint dry. Went for vehicle inspection, And pass easily now.



Put new roll bar in.



Lower the suspension a bit with Tein spring and shock absorber. (did you notice something?)



Put some new wheels and brakes in.



And the car is ready for track day.
