Fast Cars are fun too

I thought I would share some pictures with you guys from the shop I did some work at in Daytona Beach. It was called Projekt7 and we had a contract to assemble JDM cars from parts so that they could be titled like a Kit car. This way it didnt have to meet as many DOT requirements. IN turn the cost to own a Skyline GTR33 dropped from $50k down to about $22k. Here are some of teh cars we did.

Right Hand Drive Supra. This guy had more money than he had sense.



Nissan Skyline GT-R 33




Some Skyline GT-S 32s



My favorite...Nissan Pulsar GTi-R


A bunch of them assembled and in storage in the Dyno Bay.

Nice cars Walker. I still prefer 60's and 70's Muscle cars over the new sports cars.

In full agreement. I use to drag race on weekends at the local strip in my 66 impala and Buddies 75 Firebird we dropped a 455 into. He was afraid to push it at the track so I ended up driving it. Guess I am more of a straight track guy.

Fast motorcycles are just as addicting! Seems everytime I get on mine I look down and I am doing over 100mph. I am so used to it by now that it seems like freeway speeds.

Speed is more addicting than illegal drug use and can be cheaper...if you don't get caught.

I have wanted a Subaru WRX STi since they came out. What a car. An '04 or '05 would suite me fine.

Man, they'd put me under the jail if I had one of those! The wife is constantly yelling at me that I drive too fast, now she has the 2 kids doing it too! Heaven forbid I get on the highway and merge safely without a chorus of "Daddy, slow down! You driving too fast!" from the back seat!

SOMEHOW we got a ticket in the mail for my wife's Safari. 57 in a 45. Must be some kind of mistake, since I know for a fact she was in the middle of a root canal at the time noted on the ticket. What to do? Hmmm...
