Im back. Decided to handle more important things first so I will have 100% focus on the build. I got into the accident last year and pretty much fell back from the car scene. Slight depression I guess. But now this is going to be one of the best Aristo's you have ever seen.

Please stay tuned as I make this car sooo sick...It will be quarantined.

Default A little History

This was the old GS that most of you guys remember. Had good progress. Could have been the one but she left me. lol.






This is the second GS. Had a lot of water damage and some electrical issues so i got rid of it.


Then i was car-less. On my 3rd and last GS now.

Default The Potentials

So i had a nice variety of vehicles to choose from.

There was this ugly thing with lambo doors. I would have to purchase the aristo kit, fix the doors, get rid of the motor and transmission and that little paperclip thing on the trunk. lol priced at $2795.



Then there was this 96. Pretty nice. Perfect actually. Just some cosmetic damage and interior needs work. Priced at 2k.



The 94 that was very very eye pleasing. wanted 4k for it though. ehh.


A 95 that was toasted. Distributor was out yes literally hanging out. Idk how you manage to do something like that. Interior was horrible. rust. had rims i could sell. a full sound system that i would have sold as well. Car didn't start at all. and had a big hole in the rear pass quarter panel from the subwoofer. smh. Priced at 1500.



Last but not least. This beautiful 93. Comes with a 3in driveshaft good up to 1k hp. ______ _____ setup. (Dont wanna spoil anything.) lol. e____e needs to be rewelded lol. & a aristo rear bumper. Let the owner have everything else. He sold the motor, tranny, coils, took the sound system and everything else he needed. Which is exactly want i wanted. Cons: fuel regulator isnt working and windshield is cracked. Priced at 3500. an additional 500 for the aristo front bumper, 3 piece wing, powerfolding mirrors with the switch & relay & the JDM hood w/ toyota grille and a additional 500 for full supra tt setup with new rotors and pads. minus 200 for windshield and regulator making a total of 4300 which isnt bad for all of that. oo and it comes with G35 wheels



So i picked the last one of course. Thought it was really a good deal. Plus it prevents me from driving the car due to it being a rolling shell.
EXCELLENT

Yea pretty much. No motor, tranny, ecu, blown ksports, no sound system & no exhaust. wouldn't have been big enough for my setup anyway.

I think I said too much lol.

makes no sense. stock suspension would go, motor & trans, exhaust i still would end up with the same setup and i would have to pay for the _____ _____ and the e____e lol. I rather get those 2 things out of the way now. and it has the driveshaft, rims and bumper. so it weighs out.
