"HotSoup" (liscence plate)

It all started with my 07 Turbo Si Coupe,


my first ever new vehicle I purchased while I was In the service. I spent roughly about 13,000$ on parts (engine, interior, exterior, ect.). And after owning it for about 1 1/2 years a small exhaust leak on the turbo manifold blew out and caught the firewall on fire, while I was driving home from the gym at 730am. After about a 10-15 min fire fight with me and a fire extinguisher(thrown to me by a random spectator) the fire was put out, but not before causeing enough damage total the car beyond repair, even most of the parts I had put on it were un salvageable. So have getting re-emburssed from my insurance which paid me 24,000$ for the civic, which goes to show don't loose your receipts. After a few weeks of looking around for a new project, I found a 97 supra TT for 20,000$, well under what they usually go for In great condition which this one def was. So I drove up to Dallas on a crazy cold day In the spring(snow on the ground In Dallas). Not 30 min after purchasing I was pulled over(no liscence plate) and was accused of stealing it and removing the plates. After clearing that up with the bill of sale, I drove it home and the build began

I LOVE the painted hood with the exposed CF on the fins! Very nice!

I second that. The car looks amazing. The black wheels & the exposed carbon fiber looks awesome,great combo. I gotta see black classics in person,Im sure the pictures dont do them justice.

They look much better I'n person, i got some great pics of them but the way the forum is right now it'd probably cut them off I'll try anyway


^^^^ this one looks very good as long as it didn't cut off the back

Loving that third pic down, I see what you mean. Ive seen some red supras on black wheels,and theres just something about the black wheel with the silver bolts that makes it look amazing to me. Im just stuck my self cause I think itll be easier to go black from a polished wheel then mirror finish from a black wheel -=-O

Those are a black rim, and they are a matte finish from CCW themselves, not mirror like at all

Thanks
