A Splash of Color Makes All the Difference

This awesome specimen belongs to a good customer of ours down in Florida. Way too many mods to list, but the pics speak for themselves.

If you haven’t picked up this months issue of Performance Auto and Sound, get it 🙂

There is a nice feature on our of our OG Evo customers from here in NY. Daniel’s car is about as ‘done’ as they come, but it’s always a work in progress.

Congrats! Looks sick!

Costa Rican Cool!

17 Oct

I’ve said before that I love the fact that we get to deal with people from all over the world. This awesome Z comes from a good customer and friend down in Costa Rica. Not exactly the first place you would think you would find an amazingly done Z, but sometimes you find cool things in unlikely places!

Carlos has been a customer for several years now. It all began with a simple set of tires, and since that time has evolved into all sorts of stuff from Ings, NISMO, Cusco, Haltech and more! He’s even got my old ported intake manifold setup from my 350Z. Stay tuned here as Carlos’ car is about to undergo some boosted improvement soon!

All good things must come to an end…

So Marty is currently parting out his G35 show car (still keeping the car, just toning it down) and I thought it deserved some love on the blog.

This is defintely one of my favorite G35s period. This car has so much done to it but its still really really clean (peep the R35 GT-R door handles).

Let’s have a moment of silence…

Another extravagant 350z build.

I’m digging the exterior (minus all the LEDS) with the clean body kit and the Weds and what not. The rear hatch is once again a bit excessive for my taste but at least when the LEDS are off I’m sure its more tolerable than that the other Z I posted yesterday. The headliner is bleh… but whoever did the hatch did it clean and for that it is blog worthy (in my opinion of course).

I don’t get the gauges facing the rear though… Or the excessive use of LEDs. LEARN WHEN ENOUGH IS ENOUGH PEOPLE!!!

WTF?…ARC

After all the money that we alone at the shop have spent on your products you couldn’t find one Japanese dude who spoke correct English to proofread this before you permanently affixed this to your/my product?

Hahaha, no one probably remembers that horrible ass movie.

In any case your boy had some time today to install some stuff and I thought I’d share. Nothing to crazy, ARC radiator I posted ages ago on this blog and an Nismo Power Steering Cooler.

Found these pictures on Minkara and thought they were interesting.

Corny title but I finally picked up my ARC Radiator from the shop and had a chance to take a  picture.

There are a few of these floating around in the states but not many, probably because it costs 2-3 times the cost of most other aftermarket radiators for a Z. Ahhhh I remember the good ole days when the economy was doing well and I had some pesos in my pantalones . 🙂

My Holy Grail…

19 Aug

New blog, first post. It’s late, I’m having a mental block and I couldn’t figure out what to post. So I said to myself what is the coolest and/or rarest piece for your 350z/Z33 build that you have pictures of??

I think this takes the cake, ARC Z33 Super Titan Silencer Y-Pipe Back Exhaust. Some of you might have seen me post pictures before on my350z, but I took the pictures down. In any case here it is again, “an oldie but a goodie”. This bad boy set me back a lot of ducketts for sure.

Oh and if you want one for your ride you know who to hit up 😉
