Default Official Sharpie IS350 Continuous Build Thread

Edit: Decided to make this my continuous Audio build thread as well... Build photos start on page 5 - will progress as I build.


There has been photos posted here and there on over 20 forums, but none of them posted by me as an official announcement. Well, here it is...

Some of you either love it or hate it, but for me it's just just a one off car. Next year, will debut something different.

Photos by Jeff C of Photoshootmycar.com

Yes, the car is Sharpied, Similar to Brett's Sharpie Lambo.
