  • Vauxhall Chevette here in the UK. As mentioned in comments , check out the German hillclimb scene. Some super quick and screaming Kadettes being used. The 2.0 litre twin cam from a 90s Vauxhall Astra GTE C20 XE engine might be a suitable option. Helped build a few of these for race/ rally cars.

  • Td Gemini panel van was my first project ever. Wanted a coupe. Brother bought one with turbo on it that ran 10s haha. Does Marty still have this?

  • Yeh the gemi, ✌ my first car was a TD wagon in yellow, whats happened to this car?

    Corn holioCorn holioPirms Mēneša
  • An answer to why there are no coupes in Australia. Around Australia everyone knew about HQ racing which originally came from Tasmania. Well Queensland had Gemini Racing. They were some of the biggest fields at race meets. It was real bumper to bumper and door handle to door handle racing. (side mirrors used to litter the track). And everyone used coupes because of aerodynamics. Sedans punch a big hole in the air and are easy to pass coming out of the slipstream.. most coupes meet their faith on the race track. So you can blame Queensland for there being no coupes left..

  • My brother had a purple Gemini with a turbo Fj20, Hilux surf diff etc in it. Was great fun. Sad he sold it years ago was a fun cool thing.

  • I had one of these and I'm so gutted I sold it!! The Isuzu/Holden version in the "postie" spec. They were used as rural post cars in NZ so it was a 2-door short wheelbase station wagon. A 2-seater. So much fun to drive. Tiny engine but would drift and slide like a beast with slicks on the rear wheels! I hope to find it and buy it again one day :)

  • That green 4 door coupe looks fucking sick! Reminds me of a 510 or an old celica from the same era. Kinda jealous you cant find anything like that in Canada with out searching for a decade :( Edit* NEEDS A BMW S14 W/ ITB'S!

  • So i did hear something about a K20, but there are 2 options for that engine, the MR2 or THIS one. I can't wait to know more about it. Over here its called an Opel Kadett coupe and its my dreamcar. The K20 is my favorite engine by miles. So making those 2 things come together will be the best thing on earth. So announce something please because only then i can finaly sleep again.

  • The no engine joke didn't pay off.... That front end was pointing way too north for me to think it had an engine. Wheels gemini in, it just got here. Me: They took the engine out already what are they saying, oh wait, it probably had to be removed in customs. 20 min of pretending the engine is in still.

  • for a change, well if they could shove it in the engine bay, why don't they put an isuzu 4jj1 diesel engine in there. thais uses them for drag racing and they're getting less than 10 sec.

  • speaking of 4 cylinders.....and one of the car makers being izusu, chuck one of the Dmax diesels in it, party for days

  • A little late to the party in regards to engine suggestions but something popped to mind... Isuzu 4XE1 Turbo 1.6L Probably hard to find, expensive, not a lot of aftermarket parts but it keeps the purity in the same way of Moogs Fairlady. The 4XE1 turbo was an option (1.5L) on the 90's Isuzu Gemini and which was used as a basis for the Isuzu Impulse and Geo Storm in the United States. Personal note: I almost had purchased an Isuzu Impulse RS (1.6L) as my first car way back when but upstate NY weather took a toll. I could push my finger through the lower body panels. Was a sad experience.
