    I'm not cocky, just making observations/statements without the "sugar coating".
    I have met a few people from Supra Forums, of the people I have met I can guarantee that NOT ONE of them would describe me as cocky.
    But since you know me so well, you turn your back to me every time I was in your general area at the NE meet, didn't even have the decency to say hi - Who's cocky?!

    Probably because I don't pay for banner ads on his "tristate tooners" site..
    The moment I joined his site, he has been all over my ass
    I was even going to sign up one of my clients to advertise on his site - to give him some $$$ but his site is doing so well he clearly doesn't need it.
    I'm sure you don't pay to advertise on Troll's site either, he probably gives you all kinds of free advertising (as demonstrated in this thread)...
    You are so far behind the conversation here its difficult to even respond to you. When you broke the rules repeatedly on TST, I was patient with you. You were offered the option to advertise, like anyone else is, when you want to post commercial items for sale. Instead you tried to tell me what to do , then just continued to break the rules while you tried to lie to me about it all. There's not much you can really twist that into... pretty clear cut situation to me.

    I respect people who show me respect, and I don't waste my time with the rest. Sorry dude but Nick deserves it as much as anyone, and you don't.

    Also... The tow truck service you use in philly is interesting because they have japanese writing on it and on the building in the background...
    Lets be honest, you're a bit slow, right?. You've misunderstood most of the posts in this thread including the one you're responding to here where Nick is showing his last trip to Japan. His yard in Japan, a car that he took to Ibisu to drift for a weekend before he imported it to the US, etc. You didn't just blow up his spot by showing the truth that he was in Japan, since thats what he was already telling us.
    You're making it really tough when we have to go back and explain everything to you over and over again...

    Lawl, first off... I am not even sure who you are... I saw your car enough to see that I did not want your side skirts after seeing the condition they were in but thats about it, didn't see anyone sitting in the car or anything to ID the owner. I had a lot of friends at the meet who I was happy to get caught up with, its funny that you think I was worried about some cocky noob at all.
    Secondly, if it was so important for us to meet then why didn't you come up to me since it sounds like you know who I am?

    That's funny, please remind me what "rule" I broke repeatedly.
    I believe you are referring to my username....
    My old username was good and there was nothing wrong with it.

    If you are referring to me posting my RX7 for sale, that was not breaking a rule either.
    I actually own the car and I was not flipping that one.
    I was going to keep it and make it my daily driver but I prefer to keep my 4 door reliable IS300
    And as it turns out, my own facebook page is a better tool for selling cars than your site.. that's sad

    I never said that he never went to Japan.
    Show me where I said that he NEVER went to Japan... lol
    You said that he goes to Japan every week or every month to inspect cars....
    I said "you're an idiot, no he doesn't go to japan every week/every month that's not how this business works"

    Professionalism out the window!! Wow!!
    Ok since you want to talk shit on a public forum EDIT:nevermind, PM me I don't want to put your dirt out in public.. I will be the bigger man here..

    Haha that's funny, yeah how much was your business & property tax in japan last year?
    Your friend or your partner's place in japan, not yours.
    You expect anyone to believe you have a place in Japan by selling JDM headlights and nickle and dime JDM pieces!? lol

    I have a shop in philly and I own a place in Japan I sell JDM Honda parts to little teenagers, and my race car is a 1990 Nissan 240 because I'm baller like that.

Its much cheaper and easier for them to just have their contact in Japan collect whatever engines become available without any discretion in order to get their inventory at the lowest prices possible without regard for quality or reliability.
    This pretty much says it. Unless you are telling everyone that you go to Japan once or twice a year to ship inventory.
    If that's the case, then there is no way in hell you have a place in japan and in philly because making one or two shipments a year is nothing!!!!

    Me personally, I get shipments at least once a month, or once every other month...
    I figure since you are soo much more of a big shot than I am, you have to be doing DOUBLE the shipping that I do....
    So that means you are in japan for 3-4 weeks every month shipping parts and cars..? Are you reading between the lines yet smarty pants!??

    You are right, my 26,000 sq. ft. building is a front for the business i dont have..
    my yard in japan isn't big, it is a lot I rent to store cars until it is time for me to make my next shipment.
    It allows me to buy cars as i find them that meet my needs, you know for headlights and nickle and dime pieces. When I get containers, I don't get one, I get 3-4 at a time.

    If you actually read your quote from troll you will see it says i fly to japan for 3-4 weeks at a time, not every 3-4 weeks.. you are seriously pathetic and need to read before you respond.

    All of my responses were just facts to answer your misinformed posts.

    also, where do you get shipments (at least once a month)? on a map, where is your "business"?
    I tried searching your business and i cant even find "Import Angels" as a registerd business in philadelphia.
    I just found this site http://www.import-angels.com/
    and this Facebook Page
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Impor...01682596627381
    they show some cars that are in japan, some of which someone else is advertising the same cars for sale..
    The people who actually import the cars, who actually have the business, have a physical location, and have the knowledge just USE YOU as one of their outlets to sell the cars. You have nothing.

    Alex, You need to take a step back and realize that there are people out there that have been around and know more than you do. You come off as a know it all and a big business man, but have no reputation or knowledge to back any of it up.

    I have never claimed to be a "baller", but it is also hilarious that you are trying to "trash talk" my S13 Competition car.

    ps. maybe this post will get you some more traffic on your website and FB page

    Tell me where I said that you don't have a business, and while you are at it, tell me where I said you are not renting a 26,000 sq ft building...

    That's not how you were making it seem.
    You were making it look like you have a full operation in japan too which I know is not true.
    Now you are clearing it up saying it's just a lot to store cars and parts, I have a couple friends that hold cars and parts for me too!!
    Does that mean I have lots in japan too!?!! sweet!

    I get 2 containers at a time. You are definitely more baller than me, 4 containers every other month! Wow!!
    You must be in japan every month (for 3 or 4 weeks at a time) collecting cars and parts....
    Those headlights must be flying off the shelves!!

    Yeah I don't have my location listed because I don't want people snooping around stealing cars..
    Some other people had that problem, I wonder why.. You think you got me figured out lol.
    You do know me, you will be surprised and you will shut your mouth when you figure out who I am.

    Interesting theory, and yes, other people are advertising the same cars for sale, I wonder who those other people are....
    Hum.... Maybe it's people working for me... you're pretty smart... I think YOU are the "detective" or whatever you said in your previous post..
    And yes the pictures of the cars are in "my lots" in Japan (before they were loaded in containers...)

    Yeah here is my R34 GTT sitting in "my lot" in japan

    Here are two of my S15's sitting in another one of "my lots" in japan

    That's right, I don't have a reputation because your butt buddy Brian Troll only talks so highly of you, and he shit talks me.
    And I don't go around with signs and neon lights above my location to attract attention.
    Everyone that has purchased vehicles from me are 1,000% satisfied, in fact soo satisfied that many of my sales come from referrals.....

    Another case of you being an idiot. WHERE DID I TRASH TALK YOUR S13?
    I said that you are such a baller you have a 26000 square foot warehouse and another warehouse in japan but you drive a s13.
    No where did I say your S13 is an ugly piece of shit.... insecure much?

    Alex, you don't have a reputation because you know nothing about building one, not to mention it takes time and experience to be good at something and become known. Like I said before, I have been in the industry for 12 years now. Far before you think you know i got started. You only know of me from the post 2005 era.

    You say I know you, but I don't think I do. Maybe we have met in the past, but I don't recognize you. If I realized I did know you, i wouldn't regret anything I said, nor would I hold back from defending myself and my business because you were out of line.

    Your misinterpretations throughout this thread show that you are still young, not necessarily by age, but by maturity. Your responses just don't make sense.

    Troll was simply giving advice based on personal experiences he had with me and you. In this thread there have also been 6-7 other members here who have had the same good experiences with me and posted. All you have to do, is do right for people and you wouldn't have to try so hard. Your ego is getting in the way of good decision making and putting you off to a bad start in your new business venture.
    I apologize to the OP that this happened in your thread, and to all other members that actually read through it.

    You are telling me what time period I know you from....
    But you're not even sure who I am yet. Silly rabbit.
    I am out of line? You might want to check your PM...

    My responses do not make sense?
    Maybe it's your reading comprehension that is holding you back...

    Yes you are correct. There has been 6 or 7 other people in this thread that have bought headlights and other parts from you that have had the same good experience.
    You are forgetting, I SELL CARS...... I can easily get 6 or 7 people that I have sold cars to - to join supra forums so they can post in this thread too... LOL

    Well the MORE MATURE part of this "friendship" decided that we need to take this off of the public forums, enough is enough.
    Check your PM's
