This Merc totally caught me off guard. Didn’t think much of it besides ey look super clean classic car. Till I walked over to the front of the car and saw the hood up and what i found under the hood O.o WOW!

The 2JZ-GTE fitted in the engine bay!!! There’s wasn’t many mods to the stock 2JZ but it was nice to see it in an old Merc style Benz. The car also was sporting a face lift interior. IS250 dash  gauges and center console fit just perfect in the car. Wish I had more photos but memory card problems = FAIL and pictures didn’t come out. 😦 https://i1.wp.com/i3.photobucket.com/albums/y57/billshea99/IMG_1160copy.jpg

Volvo Powered: Opel Manta

Searching the net and found this gem and was stunned. Thought it was a E30 M3 and when I took a closer look found that it was a Opel Manta. Awesome looking car!! Then did some more digging and it’s Volvo powered? WOW! Engine looks tough. Almost everything under the hood is custom. Props to the builder cause this is an amazing build.

Enjoy.
