Look into the sun: A great sanitora
March 5, 2009
First spied at the Short ride height, Drag, Rim deep meet; this sunny truck has become my favourite surpassed only by the IRS light blue truck in previous JMW posts. Man it’s so good. Upon falling for its sexy good looks, e-net trolling was on the cards for more pictures. I managed to track down the dudes Minkara profile and profited to the highest extent.
Usually not a huge fan of soft top tray covers, however this one looks surprisingly good. Not so much when its filled with water however.
I guess you could call it a “GX-5″ ute, rocking the GX-5 black and red stripe and GX bullet fender mirrors it looks the part. Other small features you might notice are the shaven rear bumperettes, monsoon visors and a coupe badge to suit. Thankfully it retains the A series, sucking through a pack of MSR bike carbs, oh the glory of it all.
No doubt the absolute best feature of this car is the ride height and wheel fitment. 13×8.5 Hayashi streets and 13×8 Focus Racing wheels. According to the Minkara, he’s running 155/60/13′s on his streets, what a legend.
Making that ride height possible is a pair of reset leafs and a 15mm block. If its still got a positive curve it in, you’re not low enough.
Its all about the driving experience, driving to the car meet that is.
Low quality night photos can’t get it down.
How low is it you say ?
And his previous ride….??
… another sanitora, same, but different.
