I want to see what else you have in the stable. Whether it be your track car, auto-x slut, daily driver, family wagon or full on restoration.....post it up. Each month, I will select a car that will be featured and have homage paid for the hard work, time, money and good taste it takes to build a car or to find one that I find to be super freakin awesome.

Post Content Guidelines:

-Year/Make/Model of car and the year you acquired it.
-Try to sum up your build/car in a single post. I don't want an entire build history in back to back posts.
-Minimum of 1 picture, maximum of 5 pictures per post
-Mods list if you would like to share or keep it to yourself if you like to roll undercover, your choice.

How to get your post edited or deleted:


-Again, I don't want an entire build history in back to back posts. You can post a build thread in Rigz for that.
-This is not a banter or discussion thread. Of course, comments are welcome but if a discussion is necessary, please post your own thread for that so this stays on topic.
-I don't want to see your Focus in this thread. We have FOTM, Rigz and a plethora of other places you can show off your Focus.

One of my favorite things about FJ is our ability to appreciate anything that rolls. We don't limit ourselves to a single make or model to be enthusiastic about. Keep it cool, keep it clean, keep it on topic. Thanks in advance, guys/gals. ;)

2002 Kawasaki Ninja 250R, Owned it for almost 2 weeks now! So much fun :D

So many to choose from! :lol:

I'll start with mah truck:

1998 Toyota Tacoma, 2WD/5 Speed, bought in 2004. It is the special package that came with the color-keyed front bumper and grill. It started off as a fun daily driver, but has turned more utility as time goes on and my needs increase. It is my primary hauler and tow vehicle, as I tow my Focus and many other vehicles all over California and sometimes Oregon.

These pictures are a little out of date, but it gets the point across:





Suspension/Wheels/Tires/Brakes:
Bilstein shocks
Addco front sway bar
Addco rear sway bar (currently removed)
Hawk LTS pads
Mustang Cobra 17x8 w/ Fuzion ZRi tires.

Visual:
Paint match rear bumper (thanks to being rear-ended by an Acura)
2001-2004 Rear taillights and badges
Bug guard, running boards, mud flaps, arch trim all came on it.

Drivetrain:
Reflashed ECU
Gibson Exhaust (patched together recently due to its advanced age and lack of care/budget)
K&N Intake
3.73 final drive (from 3.42)
Detroit TrueTrac diff (helical, and awesome)

Interior:
Tachometer cluster from SR5 with matching miles.
Bucket seats from Crew Cab
Alpine iDX-100 w/ Alpine amp and MTX form-fitted 10" sub.
Trailer brake controller
Fuzzy duck

Don't forget about the carbon fiber front end you got on there Heat.

Do you got a pic of that, I thought that was a very nice touch to the vehicle.

Yeah, I have a few in my build thread. I just wanted to put a couple pics above that showcase more actual work done to the car.

The grill is a custom one done by Tom Raider. Unfortunately the molds are gone so I'm weary to run the grill.

Heres my entry :D:
1999 Mazda Miata (Bose/Leather/Sport pkg.).
Acquired about 18 months ago from a local autocrosser. Cut more weight here and there, added some back with bracing and safety equipment. Been having a blast DD'ing it and taking it to numerous autocrosses and now a couple of track days. Some people think the lack of power steering is difficult, but anything over 3mph, its actually weighted quite nice. Future plans include a new set of wheels, better brakes, fancy coilovers, more supportive seats, and WAY WAY down the line maybe a built motor with ITB's.
