Default Yesterday, All My Troubles Seemed So Far Away

Now it seems as though they're here to stayyyyy... Oh I believe, in yesterday...



Just thought I'd share that yesterday was the last day I owned two decently kinda almost-cool SC300s for about 1.5 days.

97 Black on Black manual I just picked up!
Blitz Nur Spec exhaust w/ custom mid section
Tein HA Coilovers
LS400 Brakes w/ slotted/drilled rotors
SSR D5R 18x9 18x10 (will be gettin rid of these soon)
Some Alpine Navigation system with 12" sub
8000k HID low beam 3000k fogs
LED lights everywhere for dome/license plate, etc...

97 White auto
Top Speed axle back exhaust
Megan Coilovers
Rota Grids 18x9.5
6000k HID low beams
-uninstalled 5spd swap





Then I let the white one drive away, haha. Sold it.

Na, it was a shuffle that worked out nicely. Lined up buyer for the white one, bought black one, then sold the white one the day after.

ha, not Volks. I really couldn't justify it with TE37s costing half/a third of the value of the car. Rota Grids, but they give it a sweet stance imo. Maybe I'll try them again on the black car in a custom color.
