ETKING's 85 ET

Post by etking » Sat Jan 09, 2010 6:04 pm

Background:
I have been on this forum for years, my first car was an 84 maroon ET that was unfortunately T-boned by a drink driver. I then picked this car up in a pretty poor, stock condition and have set about personalising it ever since, slowly doing it up. All work has been done by myself, family, friends, and Evan has given me a hand along the way. The car is not complete, and i will probably keep it forever, too much blood, sweat, tears, and $ have gone into it. I have been extremely slack by not making a members ride, but here it finally is!

Hi, your car looks great.

I think the best color tone is that one -> light blue with the white bottom.

Looks great.

And has the goods to do the odd track day........Have you done one?

Drag Evan down with you if you do :)

Excellent work there!!

Darren.
Race it.
