Default my old steed

here are a few words on my first love--
honda city vtec 2000
1.5 ltr v-tec sohc
17" alloys
195 section mrf tyres.
side skirts, front & rear spoiler,modded bonnet the works..
red and white paint job.
high end blaupunkt audio.
k&n air filter.
free flow exhaust.
gt20 turbo charger.
turbo intercooler.
new blow off valve to cope with additional pressure.
forged Al pistons. (made at my own workshop)(dad manufactures and supplies parts for ships engines and so could do this myself)
this car could smoke the guts out off many decent cars and i could take this car to the limits very rarely.
it demanded a lot of drivers skill and bank balance!!!
sadly, my dad sold it off a few weeks after i shifted base to banglore as he suspected i would insist on taking this car with me next time i came home..(of curse i would!!!)
so no current pics but older pics on their way..
but right now i already have my next project ready as i am planning to buy a contessa and modify it to look like THE GT500!!!!! in banglore.....
lets see how this turns out..suggestions are welcome and would like to contact persons in banglore if possible. how do i get phone nos????

they used to do that a couple of years ago for the INRC.
infact if you are willing to pay a few extra grand...they also make custom tyres..ditto with ceat.

Welcome aboard Countach. Your car sounds like a monster....how about sharing some detailed pictures of the mods (especially the turbo)

I think so. But my favorite Honda City Turbo is Peters : Link to his Turbo City (My Turbocharged Honda City). That guy modifies in an extremely clean and purposeful manner.
