When a man named Lucas Nilsson in Sweden heard about the 24 hour Clunker challenge, he decided that he wants to join the competition. But the thing is, he’s 16. He just got his driving license and he has no cars. But, he found a perfect car. A used 3rd generation TSR Kansai. It is the most underrated of all Kansai’s. So, he can get it for cheap. He found one online. So, he called the owner and decided to meet up at a parking lot. It was a TSR Kansai G (Base model, FWD, I4 engine, open diff, steel wheels). And luckily, it is in his favorite colour, Iced Stone. When these things are brand new, it was $15762 without mark-up.
Lucas: Hi. Nice to meet you.
Owner: Nice to meet you too.
Lucas: So this is a legit 3rd generation TSR Kansai.
Owner: Yeah. These things are rare because no want buys them.
Lucas: So, just rust on the bumpers and hood.
Owner: Yup. You can have it for $2000.
Lucas: I’ll have it.
hands over $2000
Owner: Thank you.
Lucas: You’re welcome.
Then, he brought it to his garage.
He starts by removing the hood, wheels and suspension.
Then, he starts replacing the bumper and replace them with a rust-free one. Unfortunately, the colour of his bumper and his hood is gloss black. Anyways, he bought some coilovers, new anti-roll bars and wheels from a Kansai RS of the same generation. He also bought a performance intake and removed the 2nd muffler (the Kansai has 2 mufflers) which gained him 10HP and 4 lb-ft of torque. He also painted his brake caliper red to look cool.
And here’s the finished product.
Maybe it’s too nice to race here but whatever. He wants to participate in this competition. That Iced Stone will have lots of scratches and hopefully, he will be able to come back home in one piece at least.
