Very nice sir!

A lot of people love this car (including myself) and it's a great motivator to know that you didn't just wake up one day and dump 10k into your car. It was a progressive project over 3 years to get you to where you are today. Hopefully peeps will look up to you for that and know that it takes time and dedication to get a sweet ride.

Also paint looks $$$ for a 2001 (aside front bumper and body kit) it's obvious your babied that car all the way.

Any more future plans in mind? I would recommend a rear brake swap and some drill and slotted rotors to accent the wheels.

couldnt agree more man.

bernie, as you know, im in awe of the stance you've achieved. also there's the possibility of a stance meet going on with some of the guys over at stanceworks. it'll probably be within the month and probably somewhere around annapolis. i'd love to have a familiar face there man, also i havent seen the enkei's in person yet!

Well tint is a must, if everything works out i may do a 6spd 2zz swap next summer.

Funny thing is that the grams are on another celica 2 minutes down the street from my house.
