Normally I just take pictures of every “old” J-tin I come by and it just sits there in a directory on my harddrive. Normally it will never come out again, but every since I read his posting about his SS40 fetish I really had to post this one. 😉

This particular SS40 looked like it belongs to an old lady: it had everything from pictures of (grand)children on its dash till the sheepcloth cover for the steering wheel! And it only travelled 60000 kilometers!

According to the vehicle registration site it was sold to a new owner two years ago, so sale from granny to granny?

The car is practically rust free, except for this hole:

Probably once had a scratch and then deteriorated during its 24 years lifetime.

Another flaw was the front bumper:

Some mild damage deformed it but actually it is like nothing compared to most 24 year old cars!

So, there is only one way to save it properly: slam it to the ground with a set of SSR Mk II rims and add some fender mirrors and a big noisy exhaust to make it complete!
