Right before I bought my current GS3, I had a GS400, a sleeper sc300 with a single turbo GTE (sold) and an SC400 single turbo that I still own.

I originally planed to boost the GS4 but doing the sc4 was $uch a headache with all the trial and error.

soooo , About 2wks after i got the gs4, I Caught a black/black GS3 for sale and jumped on it. I sold the GS4 a few months later. figured it would be a better platform to build up and was the colors I really wanted

I did an NA-T setup on the GS3 for a year or so and then decided to go VIP with it.

One of the three.

1) I foolishly sold my 1999 Lexus GS400 with 130K miles in November 2013. It was near perfect with SEVERAL new parts that I put in mostly myself. Tested the waters on Craigslist and someone bit for my asking price. Had to let her go.

2) End of November 2013 I got a gorgeous 2004 Mercedes E500 Sport. Gray with charcoal interior with 73K miles. Drove it home and buyers remorse started to set in. The fit and finish and style was on point The next level above Lexus. Reliability and extremely high repair bills was my main concern in particular the Electronic Air shocks and SBC brake booster. Also never could get used to the faint brake booster pump buzzing and the mini Air compressor for the air shocks going off while driving. Sold it after 4 months, Recouped most of my money back.

3) Was able to redeem myself and get a 2005 GS430 with 83K miles in late April 2014. So far it has been a dream to drive. Butter smooth compared to the Benz and more refined that My old G400. Feels like I'm back in an old relationship that I should have never broken off. Plan on keeping her for as long as possible!

i came from the honda scene, i wasnt necessarily the biggest honda head though. i actually really liked rwd cars when i was a kid it went from exotics to the mark 4 supra and off to jgtc cars and d1gp cars. but still most my knowledge is in hondas. but those days are gone, my ongoing project was stolen from me

Before I bought a GS i had a 1996 240sx with a s15sr swap. It was sooooo much fun, but also a car that every time I drove it I had to pray to my lord and savior Ryan Gosling that i wouldn't break something on it. onto the pics...




My favorite set of wheels i had on the car


They fit ****ing perfect




The first engine swap I've ever done


Bone stock 2000 Platinum Edition (whatever the **** that means) GS300


The Wheels for the GS
