Tuned Toyota Starlet KP61
Edward Jai Feliciano’s Tuned Toyota Starlet KP61
While many of us cut our teeth playing with Matchbox cars or racing our buddies on the PlayStation, ten-year-old Edward Jai Feliciano learned the ropes building this cool KP61 Starlet with his Dad and Grandpa.
And while they may have left the seam-moulded bodykit to the experts, lil’ Eddie was involved in the whole build, which started with the motor. Of course, he had a little help along the way.
“I wanted to go Toyota all the way,” says his Pops, Bruno. “I didn’t want to go 4AG ‘cause everyone does that and I didn’t want to use a 20V turbo cause that’s gonna be my next project. So, we went with the Second Gen 3SG (MR2 motor) that I had sitting in my garage. Besides I didn’t want it too fast as it’s for my son you know!”
