Selden, that 1956 190SL looks great. Too bad it wasn't very reliable. It reminds me of a James Bond car.

Honda4life, again, I love all your Honda's. They all look so clean and well maintained.

I care more about the car going to a good place, so we're gonna hang onto it for a while.

You've definitely reawoken some goals in me though, that Supra was good for my soul lol
Hehe. Yeah, I really miss my Supra. It was my first car so it'll always have a special place in my heart. Here are a few more pics. Maybe they'll convince you to pick one up.

These are the Work Equip wheels that I had on it.





This is after a 5 hour drive to Modesto, Ca. You can tell by all the bugs on the bumper. It was an awesome drive.



And the HID Projectors.

Did you also retro the headlamps for the Supra yourself? They look really clean.

Out of curiosity have you looked at what that same set of wheels would go for now days if you could find a set? Many have gotten just rediculious in price.

The wheels used to cost about $1500 used and about $3K new. I haven't seen them for sale in a long time.

Yep. That was my first retrofit. I did that 10 years ago when HID's weren't as popular. I made a few other retrofits using the same square lights and sold them on ebay or forums.

I also retrofitted my wife's (GF at the time) old Accord soon after doing the Supra.

Thanks man. I really like your AE86 too. They just don't make cars like they used to.

Here was my 03 Civic SI that I had. This car treated me great.


Over the years, I did a lot of modifications to it. I added a turbo setup and at 10psi, it put out about 260WHP. With my wife and stereo crap in the car, it ran a 13.8 @ 110mph. It was a blast to drive and I sold it to my cousin with 170,000 miles on it. The turbo had been on since roughly 40,000 miles. I know he drove it around Ohio for a while and later sold it. I hope that car is still hauling ass somewhere in the country.

The iconic Bond car was a 1964 Aston Martin DB5. 10 James Bond Cars You Can Afford.

I have no idea what they were thinking when they put Bond in a Mercury Cougar XR7 (On Her Majesty's Secret Service), but the absolute low point was an AMC Hornet (The Man with the Golden Gun). Ewww. At least it wasn't an AMC Pacer. How did they expect Bond to pick up hot Bond girls in a car like the Hornet?

My in-laws rented an AMC Pacer on a trip to California in the 1970's, and I remember pulling away from it on uphill mountain grades with my Honda N600.
