Very nice, wouldn't say i like everything on it but its does look well as a package. Conalnugent is selling a set of white door handles on this site, would look good on it :D

Why the angry face by the way ???

This is the first car I've seen where those rear lights don't look bad. Your car suits them. Good job :)

Mate...

What's not to like on The Ghost??? Do tell...  :o

I PM'ed Him already, about the Door Handles!!! ;)

It's actually meant to be a MEAN face!!! ;)

I do have some much better photos, but they were 'too big' to be uploaded...  >:(

Thanks for Your Input...  :)

This is the first Calibra that I've seen, where those rear lights don't look bad... Your car suits them! Good job :)

Mate...

I know exactly what You mean, regarding these Tail Lights... ;)

It's all about finding that 'BALANCE' when going to the Dark Side!!! ;)

It's very easy to ruin the Calibra, when trying to enhance it... ;)

Only thing i don't really like mate are the rear lights, simply because i prefer the standard rear lights over any other type. Other than that i think its great, very well done as there is alot of work there :D

Mate...

I understand Your views on this very delicate issue... ;)

I tried the Standard Lights at one stage, but they looked too 'Out-dated' for The Ghost...

Plus I wanted to fit LED's in the them, and the Standard Lights look terrible with LED's...

What's not to like on The Ghost??? Do tell...

I don't like the front or rear bumper or the side skirts or the break light on top of the boot or the rear lights Or the front lights and I'm not a fan of chrome wheels and the number plate lights look to bright.

But it is a clean example of a Calibra and at least it's not got a pram handle on the boot.
And even though the kit is not to my personal taste it looks fitted well!
If we all had the same taste all our cars would look the same and that would be boring!!

I also like your what's not to like about it comment :D you obviously have a passion for your car and good on you for it! ;)

I'm nearly 100% sure it was mate. I quite like it but surely a better idea would have been sticking a spoiler with brake light on all of them?

I'm very well aware of the 'I Hate Body Kits' Brigade...  ;)

The 'Calibra Bumpers look very ordinary' and that's why so many, add Extensions to them!!!

The Centre Brake Light on the boot, came Standard on all Australian Calibra's didnt it?

THAT'S CORRECT!!!

Only the Turbo Model here, came with a Rear Spoiler and Body Kit...  >:(

But even that Rear Spoiler, doesn't have a Brake Light built into it...   :'(

I'd have to Import such a Spoiler from the UK, and right now, that's LOW Priority for Me...

Mate... From what I saw on Your Build Thread...

It's indeed a 'Very Standard Looking' Calibra, and the Hoses are what Stood Out the most!!!

As for looking deeper... I doubt too many people will be getting down low enough, to view the Yellow Painted Suspension Parts...

Certainly a Nice Calibra no doubt, but not a Head Turner!!! ;)

I'd also take a well maintained and "clean" Calibra over one with a bulky kit. I'm a fan of clean lines.

This is, IMO, as bad as it gets.
(http://finncdn.no/mmo/2012/6/vertical-3/01/3/352/473/83_1432926220_xl.jpg)

Your "Ghost" looks much tidier than that one of course, but I still think the bumpers are a little too massive. Not that much, but a little =P

EDIT: No wait. That blue car could have been worse with a giant scoop on the hood!
Title: Re: THE GHOST!!!
Post by: Martin. on June 05, 2012, 15:54:29 PM
ok ok ok,

Lets be cool and not let this go to far.

Ok I started it with my comment.

No my car is not as much of a 'head turner' which i'm fine with coz that's the way I like it.
I didn't intentionally post on your thread to  insult you or your car. As I've said it looks like a well fitted kit.

The first time I looked at the thread I didn't post anything!  (so not to offend)  the thread has had over 170 views and nr 30 odd posts.
most of which I'm sure don't want to offend.

But, when you said to Angus

What's not to like on The Ghost??? Do tell...  :o


you where opening yourself to comments! (sorry)

or was it a rhetorical question ??

As jckf pointed out its along way from the OTT kits that are about.

Please don't be so offended that not everyone loves your car as much as you do.
I could post you links to threads where others have said they don't like my wheels when I changed them to the ones I've got ! or the colour of them! and other things!

Yes its a VERY clean tidy well done calibra  :)

As long as you love your car! nothing else matters!

(others will know what I mean)
its defo not a Kermit!!!

(that's a good thing! BTW)

Come on chap, if you know what our opinion is why are you getting so offended! If you like yours that way. then you cant like ours the way they are?? (standard) but we/I don't mind!

the difference is the car in Angus's avatar is a real race car not a street car.

don't be so offended chap.  go have a look through other threads in the 'show of your car section' have a read of the comments on most of them and relax!

Yes... It's a VERY clean tidy well done Calibra, as long as you love your car, nothing else matters!

+1

Martins turbo is a head turner when you see how fast it goes past you and the noise it makes. It's also a very nice looking cally in general. Definately clean and it does turns heads... Its a calibra ffs ;D

I like the kit as far as calibra kits go.

I've had 8 calibra's now and prefered the standardish look myself.

I've only ever had The Ghost!!!

Almost 6 years. 7 calibras Actually, I just counted them in my head ;D One was a "buy and sell project" out of those, I bought it, fixed literally everything on it, Timing kit, exhaust, battery, heater matrix, tyres, cam sensor etc etc and sold it to a friend. I had a calibra with 18" Wheels and a full stainless system before I could even legally drive!

How long have you had The Ghost? Have you got any other plans for it?

Had it since Mar 2003... So well over 9 Years now...

Interior Upgraded...

Engine Phase Done...

Suspension Phase soon!!!

You Guys in the UK have it so easy, with parts being so cheap, and so easily available...

Post by: LeeRoy on June 06, 2012, 08:53:32 AM
I think you're taking things a bit personal mate with your "real men" comments.

YOUR car was put together in YOUR eyes the way YOU wanted it, and not everyone is going to love it as a package. Some people may like some parts individually, some people may like nothing about it at all. Me personally? I like the headlights. Thats it.

I applaud the effort thats gone into it, and I applaud your enthusiasm, but you gotta take the rough the smooth, dude.

Post by: Berny on June 13, 2012, 14:31:40 PM
I quite like that Calibra tbh, can see alot of people have had a dig at it mind.

Eddey mate I know what your saying Ive had two Calibra's in the past and first things I did was body work. In my eyes the standard Calibra does look dated but needs little work to give it a totally refreshed look. I'm guesing your a little like me in your early 20's or something ... over here the calibra has sort of fell into the older guys ( :p :p don't take it to heart ppl ) sport car catergory now cause insurance price's deter younger drivers.

personally if I lived in Aus tho I'd have to make the most of living so close to Japan. :D

I fall on the side of absolutely loving this car!!! IMO it is awesome!!!  But it is just my opinion and that alone. I am not the Calibra God and nobody else is either!!! Standard cars bore me and "Batman Kits" make me want to puke!!!  But The Ghost is neither.  It reminds me of Kylie in a Cali!!!   :P

Well mate for what its worth I love it, you will always get the purists who like them standard, I don't know why though there are not many people who have left them factory standard but that of course is their choice.

I certainly would not take to heart what has been said as rightly or wrongly people are people and if we were all the same it would be a f*cking boring world and we would all be driving fords :P

So man up take it on the chin and move on, we have all been there. At the end of the day what your car means to you is the most important thing in the world not what some strangers on the other side of the world think.

I can assure you heads turn when you drive down the road for all the right reasons 8)

I could not agree more, infact these words are almost as good as the Ghost Calibra. You should be proud of yourself you have not taken anything away from the Legend that is Calibra. If anything you have shown that this car will continue on forever!

Well mate, for what it's worth, I love it...
You'll always get the purists, who say that they like them Standard...
I don't know why though, as there are not many people who have left them, as Factory Standard...
I can assure you, your car turns heads when you drive down the road, and for all the right reasons 8)

Nobody believes me when I tell them that, it's a 1995 Model...

You're absolutely correct about, not many people leaving them as Factory Standard...
The Ghost turns heads everywhere I go, and I often get asked: "Would You Sell It???"

Thanks for Your Comment...  ;)

Would you sell it, for the right price???

Is there such thing as 'The Right Price?'

I've been offered $12,000 AUD = GBP 7,850

Bearing in mind that a Decent Calibra, is worth about 3 times more in Australia...

But considering how much time, passion, effort and money I've spent on the car, I said No!!!

It's approaching 10 years since I bought 'The Ghost' and I'm still not even close to thinking of selling...

Don't think there 'original'
Orange yes.
The original ones where round nipple shapes.

Not original, no.

The clear ones looked better to be honest.

Smoked ones would look better (only my opinion)
But I'd also loose the badge under it. (Again only my opinion)

I'd remove all together, and fill hole, and no badges. Flush looking.
Only my opinion

Good move.

I saw the 'Orange Nipple' style on a White Ferrari recently...

So I thought I'd experiment...

Thought I'd restore some 'Original' features... lol

Don't think they're 'Originals'
Orange Yes... The Original ones where round nipple shapes...

Them being orange, was what I meant with the 'restore some original features' comment...

The Originals won't ever go back on, as the holes on the wings were modified, to fit the new parts...

I quite like that Calibra tbh...

Eddey mate, I know what your saying...
I've had two Calibra's in the past, and first things I did was body work...
In my eyes the 'Standard Calibra' does look dated, but needs little work to give it a totally refreshed look.
I'm guesing your a little like me in your early 20's or something...

Thanks Berny...  :)

It seems that we have a similar vision, on how a Calibra should look, these days...
A nicely fitted Body Kit, always gives the Calibra, even more 'WOW' factor...
I'm actually 40, but also still very young at heart...

;)

BEFORE: One of the rare shots that I have of the car, as almost Standard!

THE 'INTERIOR UPGRADE' CONSISTED OF:

Replaced the Cloth Seats and Door Trims, with Black Leather Seats and Door Trims imported from UK...
Replaced the Original Cream Roof Lining and Side Pillars, with a Grey Roof Lining and Black Side Pillars,
which certainly sparked up the New 'Three Tone' Colour Scheme, making it even more Unique...
Fitted the 'Bug Eyes' Style Interior Light with LED's, for that more modern look...

Sometimes a lack of sunlight, at a certain time of the day, can have that effect...

I mainly made the change for the 'Bluetooth' feature, and a more modern looking Calibra...
Now I can talk on the phone via the car speakers, and not have to worry about getting fined by Police...

Nice car, looks so ellegant in white. I like the rims are they 18s? I had similar ones on mine, long time ago now.

I like chrome, older guys dont like them, but I always adored them, your combination in white with the rims and lights looks beasty and beautiful. That kit is not my style, but it looks sweet :)

Nice work :)

Firstly, Thanks for your Comment...

Yes I agree that the colour white, really does show the shape of the Calibra, best...
The rims are indeed 18 inch, and I've had them on for 11 years now, and I'm still not sick of them...
You're certainly correct in saying, that the 'Older Crowd' are not too fond of the Chrome, very much...

Chrome wheels really add that 'WOW' factor, and here in Sydney Australia, they are becoming very popular, once again...
The combination of the wheels and lights certainly add to the Beasty look, but it's actually the Beefy Body Kit, that really gives it that Beasty Look...

You only have to look at the 'Before and After' photos, to see just how much more modern, it now looks...

I'll never sell The Ghost!!!  :)
