Mazda Carol Hot-Rod Wannabe
You’ve gotta give plenty of credits to the Japanese students of the Shizuoka Professional College of Automobile Technology for building this cool and Mazda Carol Hot-Rod wannabe. The students combined the body and interior of a 60’s Mazda Carol (rear-engined) with the all-wheel-drive powertrain and chassis of a mid 80’s Suzuki Jimny / Samurai. Too bad that they decided to retain the Suzuki’s puny 23 HP strong 0.5-liter engine unit.
