You are in need of some new pics soon. (in the garage doesn't count ;) )


What do you guys think is the best wheel colour for the 1A1? I'm having a hell of a time deciding on wheels.
IMO; Polished, silver, gunmetal, or a grey at the darkest. As typical as these colors might sound, I think these look the best on this color. All black/ really dark wheels have a tendency to take away from the car especially when this color is already somewhat dark and looks unique in itself. (again this is all 100% my opinion)

Now if you want something different; I think this color combo on an 1a1 would be interesting... I feel that if these colors were ixed together is would almost create an Anthracite-ish color.

I think I do agree with what you are saying. I've been so torn on what wheels to go with. I was thinking about matte black ADVAN GT wheels, but I feel the black will be lost on the car and wont Pop like a black wheel does on a lighter car.

I have also been curious about the bronze/flat black look on the Work wheels. Seems like we are thinking along the same lines..

I think that black wheels on an anthracite car can look great. I've recently seen photos of an anthracite Supra with CCW SP505a's on it in black that absolutely pops.

Here is a quick little photoshop rendering I did of those Work Meister's.

Probably would look even better without the blue calipers.

Congrats. Is it a manual or auto?
I wish it was a manual! I actually have a complete V160 drivetrain from the flywheel back that will be going into this car.

Thank you sir! Been searching for this color since I first got into Supras

Was this the car for sale in San Diego? Older guy owned it and “gave it to his grandson?”

J/k it is, same license plate. Hopefully you got all the info on the car before purchasing. I was eyeing that car but the grandson rubbed me the wrong way and kept lying to me so I let it go.
