Saw this MR2 doing the whole angry headlight popular with MX5's



I thought it was kinda cool looking.

Here's some MX5 examples... with teeth!! :twisted:





I have no idea why that last picture only takes up a little corner of its big box :/ Sorry.

Anyway, these pictures are good for a laugh :P

Yeah, those Old School Toyota Nation Gear Knobs are cool.

Found this car with a full TOM'S T020 kit. DAT ASS



Anyone able to tell me how to stop these grey borders, I feel like I'm making the forums ugly whenever I post a picture.

Hah streetfighter AW.

Oddly enough i was discussing doing streetfighter style cars with a friend the other day, what you can and cant get away with.

With some of the prices you see on TM you could probably make up the cost of the car in the parts you remove!

(Though id totally have replaced that side vent, those things are in all reality actually a good 2kg)

Ill have to dig up some old photoshops i have, got an AW11 with a big bug-catcher intake sticking above the roof, blower sticking from the engine cover like some strange mashup of AW11 and Blown V8 Culture. and another of my AW with a very wide bodykit reminiscent of the 80's Group b and touring cars.(wiiide arches with flat tops)
