Making of Gloria
This car is '68 Nissan called GLORIA.
I was given this car for my friend at 1995. It was found at junkyard for him.
That was the beginning I started to make this car.
and I needed 2years to completed.
It was very hard works because it's just a hobby for me.
and now I will present you the general process of making.
|I don't have experience in make full tube
until when I started this project .
I referd to many photos of Drag race car
and Catalogs like Chassis works and other.
|Assembled A-arm front suspension
with height adjustable coil overspring
and 4-link rear suspension
that made by myself.
|I made a kind of "Fanny car cage"|
|This project was so hard, but I think it
got realy nice.
and then it's must not finished without friend's special help.
especially M.Kusakabe / Ken.Takamura / S.Miyatani
