BMW M3 on OZ racing wheels:

BMW M3 widebody on color matched wheels:

Image

Image

Liking this color scheme:

Image

BBS RK’s on this E30 M3:

Image

Classic HRE’s work well with the E30 M3’s lines:

Image

White on white, BBS RK’s, factory widebody, what’s not to like?

Image

Black on black with late model wheels:

Image

 

This thing is sick! Big turbo, enhanced flares,wide 3 piece wheels, custom paint and more!Image

Note the valve covers, intake manifold and throttle body location. That’s right, it’s packing a Chevy LS series engine!Image

Rota RB-R’s look awesome with the pumped up fenders!

Image

BBS RS: A timeless classic that works on any euro auto!

Image

A hint of JDM with the carbon hood and Advan RGII:

Image

Not sure what wheels these are, maybe BBS RF?

Image

And now something totally diiferent: A slick shod, drag prepped turbo eqipped race ready E30 M3!Image

Random sickness, v.4:

3 wheeling Fiat Abarth!Image

Modified Hyundai Veloster?Image

Was just talking to a friend the other day about how you almost never see the Kia Soul modded…

Image

Maybe a big Japanese GT-VIP style Lexus GS430 is more your style?Image

For more speed, add lightness: Lotus Cortina carrying the inner wheel through a banked turn.Image

Big Mercedes W126 laid out, likely on air: straight up gangster.Image

Another german on air ride: Mini Cooper on BBS wheels.Image

Sorry for the low res, but how awesome is this arctic prepped Nissan Frontier?Image

And some Japanese drifter conversion weirdness: Nissan S13 with Mercedes headlight conversion.

Image

I’m a sucker for air ride and roof boxes. Any car is better to me with those two things. Like this Scion XB 2nd gen.Image

Project Junkyard Jewel: 1988 Mazda 323 GT

So, I was looking for parts for another project in the junkyard one day when I spotted this diamond in the rough (quite literally) from across the yard. I recognized the distinctive intake pipe and knew immediately what  i was looking at. $300 to buy it from the yard and a couple months of paperwork later and it was mine.

3 days after I bought it it was running. Over the 5 years I had it, i learned a great deal about working on cars and my GT benefited by receiving all sorts of upgrades and enhancements, such as new shocks, lowering springs, MX6 front lip, Subaru GL foglights with snap on covers, Work Equip 03 replica wheels, 195/55-15 tires, full header back 2.5″ exhaust, Exedy clutch, Toyota MR2 seats with adjustable bolsters, 8 ball shift knob, Momo steering wheel, tinted corner markers, turn signals and taillights, rare factory decklid spoiler, and more.

 

There were likely less than a thousand of these ever made, and it was a very fun car and project. On to the pics!
