I ended up having three Mazda 323’s. This was the first one, purchased for $500 when I was dirt poor. Spray painted wheels and faux carbon fiber spray painted hood, along with a 323 GTX grille were the only changes to the exterior. Inside I had a set of GTX seats, a Momo steering wheel and an aftermarket shift knob. Oh, and my portable cd player velcroed to the dash. Best thing about this car were the brand new Tokico sports shocks I installed because they were discontinued and cheaper than anything else I could find. Don’t worry, everything was better after this.
Honda Civic with old school hood graphics at their finest.
Nissan S13 looking quite period correct for its time.
This wild Honda Civic drove in pulling a trailer. I can’t imagine what this must have been like to drive at full chat.
Lexus GS headlights on a VW Beetle with some “interesting” bodywork. 2006, folks.
This Civic blew me away in 2006 and it is still breaking necks today. I should do a feature on it sometime as the craftsmanship is amazing.
Nissan Altima convertible… ooookkkkaaayyyy…
This Audi was one of the rare cars actually on point.
This Supra was another. Rear fitment is a little off but other wise pretty well done.
The Fuzion Tires chop top Jeep Wrangler on some import-tuner style wheels in a eye-catching grape purple paint job.
I thought this was the cleanest car at Nopi. A Saturn SL2, which had every inch gone over and either upgraded, or refinished to an exceptional level of quality.
I didn’t even know how awesome this was, only that I’d never seen a Skyline like this KPGC10 before.
NOS sponsored Pontiac Solstice.
Another well done contestant, a gorgeous R33 Skyline on gold BBS wheels.
Widebodys were everywhere and rarely looked truly “right”, like shown on this Lexus IS300.
Boser hoods were still all the rage in the euro circles, like this MK3 Jetta demonstrates.
Pontiac Firebird on Corvette wheels was a bit of a fish out of water among all the imports.
R32 Skyline on Nismo wheels and wearing a RB Motoring banner. Wonder what happened to this car after Motorex went under?
GM brought a bunch of modded vehicles every year. In 2006 this banana yellow Pontiac G6 was one of them *shudder*.
Speaking of shuddering, how many of you would daily this wild Lexus?
Push me-pull you Acura Integra… Integra’s?
Nissan Sentra with chameleon paint and a Pulsar GTI-R hood.
I still think this was a game changer in the Lexus SC game. NOS sponsored drift style, don’t know if it ever competed or was just a show pony.
Daihatsu pickup. Ridiculous is about the only word I can think of to describe this.
Last but not least. I believe this was packing decent firepower underhood but some questionable graphics on the exterior.
GE8 Honda Fit on BBS LM:
Race ready or pavement scraping, BBS LM go well on everything, just check out this slammed Infiniti Q45: This FD3S RX7 has been all over the internet lately, and for good reason: BBS LM’s, slammed stance, clean aero!
Toyota Chaser on BBS LMs:
