Weh Hey, VOLUME 3.
So much has already been written, by so many, about so little.


I don't think I have seen a photo of the three quarter rear before.
Certainly not the best view of the car. A most peculiar rear shape.
The overall rectangular slab width, makes the wing look so narrow.

Just to set the scene we need pictures of chillies as well.

The Supra looks so wide compared to the Aston…….

Modern cars just get bigger and bigger! The mini is now a joke.

I prefer the AM rear end I must say, the Supra looks a bit droopy, and too fussy.

Different designs can create illusions. Are the two cars of similar widths, Richard ?

The other illusion question is; will they even fit through the open garage doors ?

I think they're similar widths Jon, the right hand side under the car port is slightly lower than the left which makes the Supra look quite tall, but even so the Aston is definitely lower.. Aston fits in the garage with about 2-3" clear either side with the mirrors folded in smile

To be fair the Supra (in that colour) looks much better in the flesh than in the photo.....

It’s an optical illusion. The Aston is 1942 mm wide. The Toyota is 1854.

In the flesh though it looks much better than the photos suggest. Just a shame it was never built (more than the 1 demo)

It looks like a Barry Boys F Type body kit on a MR2

I think the dash would need an update - it had such a small screen before


and the back looked fine in the flesh


But then this was always the best angle

I've not looked at the pics for over a year. ...and I have concluded that yes, it looks terrible. It was never that good, but with age it should have mellowed/grown on me... but it looks dreadful.

Such a shame.
