Two Integra stories in one day…I’ve got to be losing my marbles. What is the likelihood that I find two BangShift worthy Integras? These are cars that I grew up hating! I can’t knock the Gringotegra, through…fast is fast, no matter what, and that little Acura has handed some serious machines their ass on a silver platter, with garnish on the side. It’s worthy all day long simply because of what it does on the track. So, what’s the story with this green car?
It started life as a Honda Integra. That’s right, full JDM…right-hand-drive, full-on rice mode, the whole nine yards. It wasn’t a hack job…it looked like it would be right at home in the pages of Super Street…but it had a date with destiny. And most of a 1997 Ford Mustang Cobra. That “Powered by SVT” badge on the tail isn’t a joke…this is a rear-drive, V8-powered little beast! By hitting play below, you will see owner David Richmond’s build, from two individual cars to one finished product that went together better than you would expect.
