Yellow Capp with a Toyota engine!

Postby William McDougall » Thu Jun 19, 2003 14:08

Found on the 'net... this Cappuccino in Brunei, of all places, has a Toyota 4A-GE 20V turbo engine (used in a turbo Corolla, amongst other cars?).

8O Where's the link - shouldn't this post be in the general section?

Nice looking but I'll bet it handles like runny custard :joker: - The weight of the engine will have ruined the near 50 50 weight ratio of a normal Cap.
Probably goes like a bomb in a straight line but not much fun if you can't take the bends :twisted:

:cheers:
Steve.

Maybe they put a bag of cement in the boot to keep the rear end on the road :looney:

All very true.

But credit where due; nice pair of spotlamps :lol:

Here's the link. About 2/3 rds down.

Some strange looking beasties there.

I'm not sure about that Cappo though, the colours a bit too much :?

I have seen this car earlier and mentioned it on the old message board.
Dave Benson responded that he had frequent contact with this Sammny during this conversion. You can see the result. Dave agreed that the performance should be ok, only the handling worried him. The spirit of Dave lives!
