Quoted from pinworthy:

Nice job, that's a great purchase. I was looking for an IS-F but at the time I couldn't find the right combo of price and equipment and when I came across the right car in a 350 I jumped on it and like you didn't have a reason to let it go ... then the RC came out and I'm smitten, I will see how long I can hold out
I haven't owned anything but Toyota/Lexus since the 90's, my current pin hauler is a Tacoma Pre-runner and this is my toy toy '94 FZJ-80

Lifted, armored, locked front and rear, 12000lb winch, dual batteries with AC converter (runs an Engle fridge/freezer and crock-pot to make sure I eat well ) and tons of little mods/updates.
I did a custom 8 speaker 1200 watt Pioneer DVD sound system i-Pod inputs, with back-up and "belly" cameras to keep an eye on things.

Since I left Colorado it just doesn't get much use but it has seen every nook and cranny of Colorado, Moab UT as well as the Rubicon Trail in CA.

I love your 80 Series TLC. I would love to build my 100 series, but it's my DD and no place to let her loose.

Sorry, this was the only picture I could find on the old MacBook.

Always wondered what it was like driving on the salt and then how much effort it takes to clean it all off.

Quoted from rotordave:

The FD3S is probably the best of that bunch (except the NSX) but the rotary engine puts a lot of people off it.
I've owned 7 FDs I think. I sold my last one last year, I don't think there will be any more.

You know, I am 37 and your FD makes me drool more than a countach. Recently, I have realized I really want what was new 20 years ago and now obtainable.

Quoted from rotordave:

That grey one, I built from a stolen and recovered wreck.
It had all custom tan leather (same colour as Aston Martin) R-Magic guards, R-Magic front, custom grey paint, 17x9s all round, rebuilt engine with 3mm seals, flowed de-sequentialised turbos, downpipe, 3" exhaust all the way, and Power FC driving it all. Cusco twin plate and 5 speed box.
It was a reliable 400hp every day, at only 1 bar boost. With FDs only weighing 1200kg, that's a fast street car.
If you really want to get the FD3S horn, and see more wings that Robby Ts Lotus, check out my old R-Magic race car.

That's insane man. Nice work.

Quoted from Deaconblooze:

Some more of the SS. I saw others do it, but I was really glad to get all 3 car seats in this thing!
I've never had anything with an LS in it before, but the sound is incredible. The car handles great with the mag ride suspension, and while I may miss the high revs of the RX8, I love the low end torque that this car has available at all times.
I need to get the RX8 out of storage and get at least a couple "out with the old, in with the new" pictures. I hope to do that this week and post the RX8 up for sale. I'll truly miss that car... hopefully I'll have the opportunity to own another some day, but there's no room for 4 cars at my house.

Nice SS. I need to be looking for one of these in the next decade. One hell of a deal for the power. Always thought the biggest loss for getting rid of Pontiac was loosing the G8.

Quoted from MrBally:

Saw this one yesterday while heading to VFW.

Looks like the one that has been making the media rounds. All reviews I have seen have been the white spec. I would love to see a better color on this awesome car.

Quoted from Procrastinator:

More race than car, but the black one is completely street legal (depending on if the cop, but most have been super cool). Camaro is a procharged 640 with 44lbs of boost, been low 6's. The GTO is a 632 with two systems on it and has been mid 6's.
People rarely believe what we've driven on the street, so for your viewing pleasure...

It's great that you were driving so slow, but sound like you were extremely over the limit.

Funny, there was a truck behind me for a while on the arterial I take home. He was consistently behind me so no good look, but it looked low. I thought there is a low rider; haven't seen that in a while. He finally caught me and it was a Taco'99-'00 X-cab that had been used hard at work over the years. Funny how what is small then compared to the smallest trucks you can get today. It looked like a mini to me, but I can remember the Datsun's from the 80's.

Quoted from Cappi:

Just got a Morgan a few weeks ago. Weather has been nice and got 450 miles on it already.

I've been eyeballing those Morgan 3-wheelers for some time. Keep us up to date to if you like it, hate it, and how it holds up.

Quoted from bkbirge:

No pin hauler sadly, but this is my daily driver, 1978 Nova.

You Texans are so lucky. Cars last forever there. No need to worry about ruuuuuuust.

That looks like you are going to have a big rear tire with the fender flare. I can't wait see you do a burn out.

#1097 1 year ago
Quoted from psd4me:

I had that exact wheel tire combo on the back of my 78 Ranchero back in the early 80's. The wild part was it fit without any mods. Also had 265/50's on the front.

I can not wait to see pictures of your final product. I have always loved Mustangs and yours looks like it is going to be something special. The rear fender extensions almost remind of a RWB Porsche 911, but you have a nice clean look, not screwed in.

Quoted from MustangPaul:

Was that meant for me Ryan?

Oops, yes it was.

#1118 1 year ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

That's what I thought, thanks. Here's my buddies Mustang at Daytona this past December, I shot video and was crew for him and the ride along was unbelievable.

That looks like fun as shite. The tastefully done liberty walk looks great. In black yours will be more sinister.

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

This is my 1999 TOYOTA Landcruiser that I bought new. Her nickname is “Old Blue”.
I have several friends who are ready to fight it out with a choice of weapons if I ever decide to sell due to the fact that she’s been garage kept since new,never been driven by a woman or young adult and has depreciated to a low value but is still in like new condition. I went looking at the 2017 model last year and sticker price was almost $80K. Only major option they’ve added in almost 20 years is adjustable air ride. My grandfather would be angry hearing me say it but it’s true...the japs build a real solid truck that’s much higher quality than the Ford Explorer I owned prior to this!

Love it. This is my daily driver, although I have a 2002; same color.

BTW, the AHC system was available at a point in time for the 100 series. It was standard on the LX470. Toyota does not allow any options on the 200 series Land Cruisers. You don't want DVD screens on backseats...too bad...you don't want powered rear seats...too bad..you don't want navigation...too bad, etc. Hence, the 85k price tag because it is all or nothing.

The Land Cruiser has always, I mean always been higher quality than any Ford Explorer or any other SUV for sale, ever.

Quoted from Fulltilt:

Roadkill! Yes!
My heroes.

I used to love Roadkill, but they jumped the shark and left Youtube. I used to watch their early episodes like old Top Gear episodes. We need something new.
