Yes, the TT Supra is a truly awesome car. My Z is putting down just over 400 to the wheels with a big fat single turbo running 9 PSI. Here's the rest of the pics if you're interested:

Yes, I edited my post so that it read properly. I re-read it and noticed that it sounded like I was implying that mine is a Supra, which it definitely is not.

I live in Stering, but am occasionally in Reston with the car. It's been worked on by most performance shops in the region and even one in NC. The car got displayed at the DC Auto Show this year, which was pretty cool.

My boss (age 53) has a White Z Veilside bodykit, Invidia Exhaust, 19 Volks. All done bj Evolution and D&V autobody. They r very pretty cars when done up.

yz1337: Thanks, Yeah, they're Milanos. They're a little heavy, but I love the look.

4npower: What's your bosses name? I know alot of the Z owners who are "active" modifiers in the area, might know him too. (I also moderate on one the internets largest 350Z forums and run a website for the local 350Z club.)

They let you have beards in the AF? Typical

Nice gixxer. I used to have a CBR F3 but between the 9 screws, the metal plate, and the speeding tickets, I figured I'd better stick to dirt trails.

But I sure do miss it!

everyone I can, I haven't looked at TPM's days this year, but I will as soon as I'm done typing this, right now I'm signed up for a day at jennings, March 11, with a small organization, 2wheeltours.com, and Sportbiketracktime's weekend at Barber March 18-19. Hopefully I can hit VIR this season and Mid-Ohio now that they've resurfaced

Great car. I actually organized and conducted that raffle for Evolution. Getting manufacturers to donate products wasn't easy, let me tell you.
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 5:38:38 PM EDT
I ran into Jeff whom use to be at Evolution this morning at the Gun show and talked to him for a bit. Found out he's at Moore Caddy in Tyson's.
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 8:31:54 PM EDT
Neat!!

Still, my idea of suitable wheels for driving around in NoVa traffic is more along the lines of an M1 Abrams main battle tank!

Be careful in that thing!!

I have been shooting with Jeff a few times, and we were supposed to go to the gun show together, but never hooked up. He's a super nice guy, and yeah, he's liking the new job at Moore. Evolution has kinda disappeared from the 350Z scene since he left there.

Send me an email if you decide to do a TPM day. I'm shooting for VIR on 3/10 and the Summit Main date in April.

These are the best pictures of the car, and the only ones I have published to the web for now.

ETA, all the info about the car is at the top of that first link. I'll be showing it at Hot Import Nights in April.

Check out the specific brand you pick very well before you commit. These things can be a really large pain in the ass depending on what you go with. Mine have specific "opening procedures" that I have to tell every passenger who gets in the car, remind them when they get out, tell the shops when I leave it for service, etc. My car is mostly a weekend driver/show car so it's tolerable, but if it was a daily driver, I wouldn't have done it.
