    This mindset is 100% correct in a performance application.



    This mindset is 100% correct in today's "street scene".


    Then there's this guy...

    Yep, I figure they'll go up a few thousand just because of the movie.

    I really don't like red cars, but a guy I ran around with in high school had a dark red one that was absolutely beautiful. I think whatever color you decide will look killer on those cars. If you're planning on flipping it you're probably better off with white or orange to ride the F&F wave.

    That orange supra posted earlier probably needs that huge wing because of how fast thos graphics make the car.

    Congrats man! I liked it with the body kit and wheels though... I say slap a turbo on it and throw some 93 octane in it and see how much of the ozone you can kill lol.

    That purp car on IG was tits for sure, but I don't know if I could really paint my own car purple. I've got the choices narrowed down to silver, white, and anthracite. For now, I think I can make the silver paint that's on it work pretty well. It's turning out halfway decent surprisingly.

    I drove the car today with the CCW's on. Yes I know they have hella mexipoke. They've already been taken back off because they rub like crazy even on stock suspension, lol.

    Then the real fun began. I spent a little time on the headlights to see if I could do anything with them. I just saved myself $1300 so I'm very happy!
    Can you see the difference?

    You should put a super and turbocharger on it. And nitrous. Plus lots of stickers.

    Looks good!

    Keep up the excellent detail work man! It's amazing what some time and effort can do for a car.

    Slow90coupe I can't get over the fact you just said something was "tits". I've heard this before, but by a guy from Wisconsin that owns a local guitar shop he was trying to sell me a guitar and he was talking about the paint job on the guitar and he was like "it's tits man" did everything I could to not lol.

    I'm not an import guy, at all. That being said, who doesn't love the Supra? It's just one of those cars. I was up in Detroit last year with my buddies for Woodward, we were cruising to the hotel late at night when a black Supra on Weld RTS's came flying towards us, he slowed down and turned right as we continued straight, and that's when we saw the "1007whp" license plate on it. He took off, and as he shifted the backfire was so loud our ears were literally ringing for an hour. The sound was just incredible. Majestic. Ever since then I've really had a lot of respect for those cars. Sure I've seen them in numerous movies, hundreds of youtube vids and tons of video games, but actually seeing a high hp one in person, just made it for me.

    Congrats on the purchase man. If it were my car I'd for sure put a big turbo on it and turn it into the monster Supras are known to be, but if it's not "the one" for you, definitely flip it and find that one. It's cool seeing this cars running around in all the TX2K vids, showing the newer cars how it's done

    I got the front bumper looking presentable finally. I also finished the paint correction, painted all of the black trim, and got the interior back together after doing a very extensive cleaning. Here's some pics. I'm very pleased with how it came out!

    And the floormats that came with the car. They're mint! I later found out that they're worth like $400, so I'll be selling them, lol.

    Cleaned up very nicely already.
    Excited for whatever spectacular wheels you put on it.

    The front lip really helps with giving them an aggressive look!
