Not only does it include the round headlights and its surroundings, but it also includes the grille. The headlights have been converted with clear lenses and are able to carry H4 (type 4) bulbs or an HID replacement! Ideal to transfer your Carina van (or normal Carina) into a Firevan replica!

This is how it looks on the seller’s Carina: Continue reading

Carina Sightings: Carina Firevan at Hellaflush FISCO

The Carina Firevan footage I found earlier was shot at the Hellaflush meeting at FISCO organized by Fatlace! @Fatlace: you guys did a great job!

Anyway, I did find some photos of the meeting at both Nori Yaro and Speedhunters and thought it would be nice to share them with you. I especially like the one shot by Alexi from Nori Yaro:

The mise en scene has something omnious…

Carina Sightings: Carina Firevan at FISCO

My heart skipped a beat or two when I opened up Youtube today! A video of the infamous Carina Firevan!
AE86lan uploaded a video of the Firevan shot earlier today at Fuji International Speedway (FISCO) and you will get a very very good insight in how amazing the Firevan actually is and how much it has been changed in the past year!

Just look at how much the van was lowered: its diff and exhaust are almost scraping the road. Its 3SGE BEAMS blacktop with ITBs is still an amazing sight under that hood. Another change is that the driver seat has been moved backwards between the front and rear door, the steeringwheel was made longer and the pedalbox have been moved back as well, I only wonder how you can shift if the shifter is still at the normal spot… It appears as if the owner either wishes to attend drag races with the Carina van or could this be a new automotive trend?
