Scion iQ Inside: 1974 Honda Z600

What a way to start a Monday! This next car had my scratching my head for a while.  I'm pretty sure there is a bald spot up there now...cause I'm still scratching.  Maybe somebody can explain to me how a car like a 2014 Scion iQ ended up being the donor chassis/drivetrain/interior for a '74 Honda Z600.  This really looks like one of the first model cars I tried to build with Testors model cement when I was about 8 years old...it looks great on the package but that glue melts everything and the end product is NEVER as good as it looked on the box or in store.  I dunno.  Somehow the seller's ALLCAPS SHOUTING DESCRIPTION ONLY ADDS TO THE ALLURE. You'll certainly get to say you are the only one on the block with this thing. Find this 1974 Honda Z600 built on a Scion iQ chassis offered for $5950 in Huntington Beach, CA via craigslist. Tip from Mike Jr.

1972 HONDA Z600 ON A 2014 SCION IQ CHASSIS AND DRIVETRAIN. IT COMES WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. LOTS OF WORK HAS BEEN DONE. STILL NEEDS MINOR COSMETIC HERE AND THERE. IT RUNS, DRIVES, STEERS, STOPS. ALL LIGHTS WORK. NEEDS AN ALIGNMENT TO DRIVE FAR. THIS PROJECT REQUIRES TO SACRIFICE TWO CARS TO GET TO THIS POINT. NEEDS NEW OWNER TO TAKE THIS ANOTHER LEVEL. THIS CAR TURNS HEADS EVERYWHERE YOU GO. HATE TO SELL. TAKING A LOST. CALIFORNIA PINK SLIP ON HAND. REGISTERED AS A 1972. NO SMOG IN CALIFORNIA EVER!!

  1. You forgot the thumbprint in testors left on the hood of the model! Besides which, what a waste of a perfectly good Honda 600.

  2. As an owner of the original S600 and loved the S800 coupe that got away, why would anyone want to build this thing? Or own it?

  6. The integration is so seamless. ;)

    I think the line, "THIS PROJECT REQUIRES TO SACRIFICE TWO CARS TO GET TO THIS POINT" says everything there is to say. There has definitely been a sacrifice of two cars.
