To each their own
Only one S2000 I've ever seen that I really liked was Tyler's (forget his RC name).
I stand corrected....USED to like
Not a fan of the camo.
It's just a wrap, so easily removed in the future. It's black underneath.
Glad you cleared that up.
Not a fan of the camo wrap.
mine was a second car that turned into my every day car. i miss it all the time.
top down summer night cruising through the city
getting it twitchy and sideways a little bit on a whim
vtec through tunnels
cant leave it overnight anywhere
every idiot wants to race
cop attention grabber
too low with the ap1 lip, would scrape everywhere
interior is humid in the rain and the rear end will come around on you if youre not careful
pic whore time
if i had it for sale now, i could probably get 3k more than what i sold it for 3 years ago. the values are appreciating on them
i dont care for modded ones. the driving dynamic of them in factory form is so much better than modded. I took the tein adjustable dampening coilovers off and the enkei rpf1s and sold them. much prefered the ride quality after and it handled way better.
Would ya think of going to the states for one?
Boots you should look into an FR-S if you are looking for something fun and relatively inexpensive.
Miss doing that in the RSX
I know it's on a different level than most of the cars here but I finally got around to assembling a car I've tinkered with on and off the past like 4 years...
Basically I took all the power options from a 4 door Gas Jetta, combined them with a wiring harness from a 4 door automatic TDI Golf and made everything work in a base model 2 door 5spd TDI Golf, then threw in GTI suspension and interior bits and made a car that was never really available... good times.
The body had a pile of parts replaced 4 years ago under VW's rust warranty... I hope to get the bumpers painted to match.
It looks like a new car?
with the amount of work he did on it it basically is a new car
Why couldn't you leave it over night somewhere?
Coworker has a BRZ. Couldn't do it
Because it's like two women wearing the same shirt to the office??
We don't even live in the same province
So why couldn't you have a BRZ / FRS then?
Because every time I looked at it, I'd think of my coworker
Looks like in those photos... certainly isn't though (almost 640,000 on it actually)
...I understand you completely man.
I guess I was confused by the "paint bumpers to match" as they looked all the same color to me.
The most of the car was painted, the bumpers and mirror caps weren't; they look like hell by comparison to the rest of the car....
Track day, bro.
Old man handed down his old truck to me about 2 months ago. Been enjoying tinkering. I need to get a hold of the stock tail lights. 1996 gmc Sierra z71 297000 kms 70 on motor tranny and rear end. Factory 14 bolt posi with 373's. The front end is all original. Never been aligned and drives straight as an arrow. It was my old man's pride and joy but his health doesn't alow him to take care of it so now it's my pride and joy. Planning a frame off resto at the moment so it's perfect for me to hand down to my son on his 16th birthday.
jesus thats clean
probably my favorite generation of modern GM trucks.
Never seen a truck of that gen so mint looking.
Probably will outlast the one beside it!
Likely it will but mainly cause I don't baby the ford
This is my latest M3. This one is a 1997 that I picked up in Campbell River BC last Sept. Has about 104,000kms, it is a European Spec and was never offered for sale in North America in it's configuration. Has a 3.2L inline 6 with 316hp, 6 speed transmission, and 3.64 lsd diff I swapped in from an 01 M3. The US versions were a 240 hp I6 with 5 spd. I redid the suspension and diff/clutch this spring and put about 2500kms on it this summer including a bunch of autoslaloms. Works really well and is in excellent shape. I could end up keeping this one for a while. The E30's have gone through the roof in value and this one is rare enough that it has a good chance of going up as well.
This one here is a 1997 as well. We built this car over the past winter to race at AMP in Shubie. Started life as a street car in Louisiana and was a Hurricane Katrina write off (but spotless go figure). Was brought up here and owned by another local member as his personal summer daily for a number of years, brought his daughter home from the hospital in it. We got it in Oct 2014 and immediately went to work on it. It was stripped and sent to Quebec to a pro cage builder and then came back for assembly from Jan to May. Has a 3.2L S54 from an 01 M3 running on a stock modified ecu with CSL tune (Alpha N), Big carbon airbox, Supersprint headers, makes about 350 at the crank with no other mods, 2600 lbs, MCS dampers, 3 clutch ramped 3.73 diff. We just completed the first season at AMP and won all 4 championships, winning 15 of 20 total races, no DNF's, and setting a fast lap of 1:11.7 (good enough for 7th on the CDN Superbike grid)
What is his secret? did he undercoat every year? how did he keep it from getting any rust at all?
that red e36 is titties!
