There was a white Brat I used to see at Castle Combe that looked ace and had an Impreza drivetrain.



I know this car well, it is stunning, not for the purists though! More here.

Same here. There's nothing on their site that I wouldn't want to own and drive. Even the Cavalier!

Not bad overall, wouldnt say no to top and bottom (bar those black rims yuk) the Jeep would be a handful.

For me, the GTO is perfect (as is every Kindig car), not fussed with the Jeep and the Anglia is ace too but would rather have steel wheels not the modern ones, keep it looking old and dowdy.

The jeep needs the meme "I saw you liked turbos so I fitted a turbo to your turbo"

And yes I know it does work in theory.

993 GT2 RWB. I've had this saved on my PC for years and I can't for the life of me remember who's car it is or when I found/downloaded the image from. Great pic though.

Sorry but I’m not a fan of the bolted on arches and wheels which are too big. Looks daft.

As for the huge wing yuk

RYB cars are terrible from both an aesthetic and a build quality perspective sadly.

The GTO is great, bar the US craze for excessively large diameter wheels.

Howso??

There's a few vids of him doing the builds if you're interested. Granted they aren't nut n bolts but no worse than most aftermarket kits.

+1 I'm not overly in to 911's or Porsche but RWB Cars are just gorgeous to me, every single one of them look's fantastic in my opinion and I really love the fact Nakai installs all of them and gives each individual one it's own name.

Some they do are OK, but the one in the vid in S1KRR’s link is dire. The wings, spoilers are hilarious.
