All I can say is.………WOW!

:o

Exactly Simon WHY ??????????????????

If you Goggle the Russian Space Shuttle and look at it's pic against a US Space shuttle that's what this reminds me of, one very poor attempt.

I'd consider the Z based 250 GTO a very good "tribute" to the original.

This however would have Tom Selek running for cover and looking for a razor, not necessarily for shaving purposes.

I think it would've been worth more as an actual TA22 Celica! Sorry, but driving in that you will get lots of pointing and laughing...

Ha Ha Looks like nobody has been game to drive that one since 1991. And rightly so.
I think the Zed GTO is in a different league for "replica".

So that's what that '308' thing is, a Celica re-body; I've seen one parked on the roadside a couple of times; not much of it actually resembles a 308's lines from any angle. And the 308 is not uncommon so we all know what a real one looks like. The Z/GTO on the other hand is pretty convincing, & one isn't likely to see a real 250 GTO (39 built in total) except in a museum or private car collection, or at a wealthy man's classic car track day in the UK or Europe.
I think go the Z/GTO, just don't leave any hint of Datsun or Japanese detailing to be seen; keep it all European in detail & finish.
I've seen a convertible version, I think it may have been at a Redcliffe car show; & it looked good. But I'd like to see a hardtop for real sometime.
