So I had an old Honda Odyssey pullback and go car. The pullback motor no longer functioned and most of the wheels were missing tires. I also had this plastic Subaru Impreza WRX with snap together bumpers. BabyFrosteds carbon fiber craze saw the hood and trunk of that Subaru turned partially black via sharpie. The wheels though were the perfect size for the little Honda minivan. So I grabbed a screwdriver and set to work.

You may notice the reverse rake. It's a little intentional and unintentional. The old pullback motor is what keeps the wheels in the proper place so without that, the back of the car sits lower than the front and doesn't really roll. But it adds a bit of an unmaintained look that I felt was appropriate for a minivan taxi. I may get the pullback motor back in to fix it, but then I may leave this look as is.

If I take it all apart again, I might be tempted to repaint it and get rid of the taxi signs. Turn it into a normal RA1 since there aren't many models I've seen of this particular car.
