Thanks. Yeah I was more less
Ok Dino, I'll bite... What's the story on the Florida plate?

Eggcelent! You should throw in some shots of its previous livery for comparison.
Yeah, don't know about the build date. Have had these cars for a while, and never seen a '78. It's a conspiracy, man.
And, awesome coverage!

Like the bumper cover. Will definitely check back for pics of the car at TAS, I don't think the renderings do it justice

It's nice to see people using monocoats, whatever the motivation. Brad, you'll be glad you did. Looks great!

...and the hardware bolting the manifolds down is likely under those plugs as well.
1 year, 8 months ago on Face To Face With The Destroyer
@Waxhaw Brad The plugs are likely for getting a look at the carbs without taking the intakes off. Some of the older photos look like the had some over-pressure knockouts, hard to see, but without intercoolers, if a wastegate hung, the first thing to go boom would be those manifolds.

Works Celica... Don't you mean the "World's Best Ceilca" ;)
Looking forward to the visit at Nojima's place. I've only seen his work in the accordion booth. I bet he bag and tape a 911 in his sleep.

Dino- you lucky dog... I see a new market opening up, hand delivered car service for builders along with feature/write-up of the journey. Leather-bound photo journal included with every workorder.
- also I think the new finish suits this car much better than defense-attorney silver

I don't believe that yellow suits it best, but the bronze/orange pearl finish IS the color for the p1.

@oxidizer ..this is the very first thing I look at, and I can't stand the ignorance of applying additional finishes to hide the telegraphing of composites.

Boost can be used as a verb, as well as a noun. Try it again using the term as a verb.
"fitted with an Ikeya Formula 4 throttle conversion and custom chromed velocity stacks, and runs an HKS F-Con V Pro to extract a little more power, not to mention boost response."

Almost perfect, but it's 101% done. Remove (or hide) that alpine head unit and it would be complete.

Dino, is that a euro-accent you have? I've always thought of you having a very American accent.. that shatters my entire universe

Looks great. Needs new front overfenders that fit the wheelbase.
I don't know if I could go there without trying to jump into the first unattended FR car I see and take off like a crazy field crasher.
