Most of your rides would be cooler with proper paint jobs, but they're still better than anything i've owned.

Hey mate,

Those cars are absolute beauties :)

You wouldn't happen to be getting down Florida way anytime soon in any of them? (and by that I mean the Camaro)

The rest of the collection are a super cool too, especially the lead sled. Respect.

This

I actually purchased a set of fender flares for my supra which are being fitted as we speak. They're the molds used for the Z. :)

It will really make the car look tough and meaner !

Keep the wheels, maybe some hubcentric wheel spacers ?

-Nav

p.s: You have exceptional taste, not just in the cars, but the colour and the style that should be used on it. Keep it up !

Mr.VENGEANCE
03-12-11, 02:02 AM
thank you!

color and style is my job, go figure..

heres my website, check out my work..

I am actually have some fender flares on deck for the car and spacers.. but when i put on the wheels with no flares i just stuck with it for the time being.

So is that TE72 wagon the same one as the white one, just painted and modded? Love the celica and zed and wagon and LS7 beast and what have I missed?

Too many rad cars!!!

Also love the artwork you produce! You have some mad renders of cars, like the one you did of your car.

I have learned to do this sorta rendering with copic markers, great work!

Hey fellas.. been a minute.. finally got my Z back up to speed and have been enjoying it.. heres a quick recap since the last time yall heard from me..


how she started out.. looks kinda rough right?.. actually she is practically RUST FREE!
It was a stock L24 240Z from Cali from the OG owner.. weird is that the dude was an older

How she sits now!

I threw on Coilovers from an Acura, swapped in an L28 with a 5speed and Triple Weber carbs and a Cannon intake.
a set of 15x8.5/9.5 SSR mk3 wheels, my crew Burn Unit paint on the tires, RX7 oilcooler, cleaned up the bay A LOT.
Painted my "zombie eyes" headlight bucket blackout, custom fender mirrors, threw on some rear louvers, tinted the lights, plastidipped the rear bumper, and finally resprayed gloss white!(in spraypaint!..lol!)

I painted my Tattoo sleeve on the underside of the hood.. my man Horitoyo did my tattoos in Japan
a few years ago.. and I just LOVE the work.. so I did his exact design from my arm to the hood of my Z.

Looking good mate. Can you explain this "Zombie eye" headlight thing for me?

thriller
26-04-13, 07:25 PM
Eeeeyyyyppp hope that wasnt a matching numbers series one to start with!!!

Guess it's different in the states to here to Aus? They're pretty cheap and plentiful there, few and far between for a rust free example here. That car would have been maybe up to 10 grand here before you did the mods, for a one owner, matching #'s with no rust (and actually had no rust...).

Personally don't dig the eyes or front bumper, rest of the car is cool though (Y). Love the other two cars!!


BTW; did you sell your orange corner indicators? If you haven't I might be interested... Same with the ash tray if you've seen one around spare, completely impossible to find here. If so I might see if it's possible to organize some 1/4 panels etc from someone on classiczcars I saw was planning to chop a clean shell up.

yup matching numbers original owner low number etc.. BUT.. I saved EVERY original part and things like the tails, original SUs, bumpers, etc.. I still have them.

We have these over here in a VERY large quantity.. and this is my second low number Z.
You guys got less of these I guess but you guys got quite a few things that we WISH we had.. so i guess "the grass is greener" thing.

yea the "black headlight buckets aka Zombie eye" was an idea of mine just because it was interesting to me.. not many, if any do this.

27-04-13, 01:05 AM
Good to hear that you can appreciate the original stuff which is good, hang on to those parts! Long as you don't chop the guards it'll be easy to restore back to stock in the future :)

But yeah the few z's we got are better hehe. 5spd, 3.9 diff, no ugly side indicators.

That celica was really really cool too

Mr.VENGEANCE
27-04-13, 05:00 AM
aw yea man nothing was cut AT ALL on this car.. its all there in a box at my shop.

and yea thats why this car is a 5 speed with a L28 now on triples.. its just proper all in all.. even though im waiting on my velocity stacks.

Im just really into doing automotive artwork.. if you seen my site www.mr-totem.com youll see what i mean.

and put them on a stock underpinnings car.. not knowing the amount of work I did..

so they stuck out like a mutha...

so they HAD to make the flares super big..

notice mine are sleeker and simpler?..


but nah.. they didnt copy me.
and notice whos car is the Icon on Newgens name?

yea.. thats my only problem with the whole thing

I aint trying to sue noone just give the big homie credit.. let everyone know who gave birth to the thug bumblebee..

Hell I would have been happy if they put Venny in the movie.. like if I was driving her by Bumblebee and it stops him in his tracks and scans it like the first movie to copy.. I would be STOKED on that!
it would be a strait up "Hey optimus.. did you see that black camaro?.. hold up im going to change into thug mode"

Id be proud then..

I have no idea how I haven't seen this thread - two spectacular cars my friend, hot damn! The Celica in particular (but that's my personal bias!)

yea.. thats my only problem with the whole thing

I aint trying to sue noone just give the big homie credit.. let everyone know who gave birth to the thug bumblebee..

Hell I would have been happy if they put Venny in the movie.. like if I was driving her by Bumblebee and it stops him in his tracks and scans it like the first movie to copy.. I would be STOKED on that!
it would be a strait up "Hey optimus.. did you see that black camaro?.. hold up im going to change into thug mode"

Id be proud then..

Yeah, you tryshould approach them about it.

I was a big fan of the transformers movies and wanted to see every single one they make in the cinemas now I am reconisdering seeing it.

Is there creative copyright on cars?
