Domestic size vs. Japanese import picture

Post by tycot1 » 29 Sep 2019 19:21
Posting this simply because i was amazed at the size difference between the two cars. I remember playing with toy cars as a child and having some other kid wanting to play but with a different scale toy.This kind of reminds me of that. 1972 datsun 510 220 hp ka "couped", 1971 510 westwood champ gt4 '81& "83, 1979 550 hp trans am, 1962 cadillac hrdtp, 2005 subaru sti, 1999 triumph daytona 955i.

The difference is still amazing compared to today's cars. In my small garage the 510 looks normal because the space is all cramped up with the car, tools, etc. When I roll it outside beside our dailies, it looks so small. The crazy thing is we have 2 compact cars (Hyundai Accent and Ford Fiesta), not even full size sedans or SUVs.
