The satin gunmetal finish on black and carbon fiber accents work really well. Even the rear wheels are flush to the fender. This AC Cobra is purely in a league of its' own.
This crazy Volvo has been converted to rear wheel drive with a motor shoved way into the firewall.. infact all you see is a huge turbo in the engine bay. With tons of carbon fiber and a side exit exhaust.. this is one crazy Volvo hatch!

When an old friend couldn't find a Lambo for a good deal.. I semi-directed him towards the Nissan GTR. Then he pulled the trigger and got a black beauty. Today the car is very street modded including, BBS LM wheels, Amuse Ti-exhaust, Amuse downpipes, KW Sleeve springs, Titeck carbon lip kit, Smoked headlights and lots of other JDM goodies. I think the stance is right on for daily driving especially by where he commutes.
In the coming months, hopefully this beast will take a turn a surpass the street look and head into a GT race appearance. Stay tuned, more to come.

Then on top of that, a layer blue paint tape to protect the clear bra... tell me, is that a bit too much?..
Ppl in this interesting image: Glen peeling away the tap on his infamous Rod Millen GS, PandaGS watching intently on how to remove access adhesive on bumpers and Johnson doing nothing and pretending to g.a.s.
This gen2 Aristo has 3 mile deep chrome dipped wheels and a custom interior that can holds its' own in Osaka!
C'mon US builders... research more for inspiration and create your own jive. Why does the Japanese culture do everything better? B/c they are passionate, they work hard, research, draw concepts and continue to improve their methods of craftmenships.
Step up yo game!
Last August, I debuted the matte white LS430 down in Socal with a bunch of Bay Area locals that all caravan together.
At the event, I was finally able to meet Troy Sumitomo of Five Axis and thanked him for supporting the project with their wheels. Troy was amazed to see the cars were vinyl wrapped instead of matte clear paint. As the day went on we discussed durability of vinyl and how it forms to compound curves.
Here you see the Altezza at its' final stages with air suspension, Endless brakes, new gold chrome pin stripe. Judges stood and listen as I explain the many long journey I had with my old car. Do I miss it, of course.
Congrats to our local metal singer/song-writer/automotive designer!
Check it out!
