Today my dentist gave me the heads up on this immaculate super fast Lada conversion in Gauteng! Hopefully he will email the complete article soon. Enjoy the pics so long  8)

I have the magazine - issue 148, but the date of issue is not printed on the magazine.

The owner installed a 3 liter, 6 cylinder Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE engine with Turbo, , 0.6 bar boost with intercooler. The engine kicks out 214 Kw / 427 Nm.
 A  9 inch, 3.7 : 1 ratio Ford diff has been installed.

If nobody manage to get scanned copy, I could try to get a copy scanned when we will be back home by the end of next month. Unfortunately my scanner does not work at the moment.

I hope my dentist will eventually send me a scan of the article - but it would be great if you can do it Danie. Apparently the Lada was used as collateral and the new owner decided on a pet project which exceeded all expectations. Not exactly the type of Niva I would like to own but the workmanship on this one is something very special.

I bought the issue in early December so it must be the December issue, unfortunately I left it in Cape St Francis so maybe Ari still has it.
