I think you're right.

Look at the distinctive shape of the rear window...




Nice one! Get a Japanese speaker on to it...

 Im sick to my stomach.....    When I sold the Award Winning, Magazine featured, Bug-In Chop, after owning it for a brief stint, I had to perform some miracles first, and color sanded/Buffed/fixed the suspension/repaired the miles of endless wiring/ and "Dyno"Tune the car. When The car left my property to embark upon its long journey to Japan, after no one stepped up to purchase it here, It was in Pristine Pure Black, "NON louvered" Cal Look Tradition, and would "Fire Breath 12's" on any given day..!   Sad to see its ruined condition, Period..!!      If in fact, its the same car...

OK Fabs, you know me, only need half a lead to get going, lets get Nou involved, confirm its real, do a deal, ship it to Scotland and lets get it back to black, looks like its easy to save and restore this to its former glory.

Just pass on the contact details and lets bring on home to us Cal Look fans.
