Haha, nice AW, the blue MR2 is fitted with a Le Mans Noble kit, it's actually for sale as we speak but I have no cash to bring it over form the UK, I'd love to make molds of the kit though.

Found this on the internet, thought it looked cool - although I would never use that wheel colour, or use stickers on my WINDSCREEN!!!...

EDIT: Actually, this car reminds me of this. LOL.

Saw this, really like the look of it - it may be just a tad impractical

EDIT: I just found some other shots of this car.
