Post 'em if you got 'em Surprised

Even if it's not yours, just post a picture of a late looker, I'm looking for inspiration for my 1300 - but pics are hard to find. (Searched this site but didn't find anything on the subject..)

I'll start out with mine: (It's far from finished)

sweeet Razz

If it were up to me, I'd use smaller wheels in front compared to slightly bigger at the back - just to achieve a more sporty stance. But that's me ...

The car is looking might fine!!!

looks like what we call 1302s. I love the front bumper, so small and minimalistic... not such a fan of those indicators - they're quite big Smile

Here's a European 1302s

That is a stock 70. I am keeping it all original. I just bought it and the only thing I don't really like is the rims are painted the same as the body.
