# Coprone : le racecar again. I managed to create some dents, but it's okay (cuz missile). I upgraded the head & pistons of the engine & supercharged it. After I've done lot's of updates to the 4A-GE, I'll get some bigass turbo on it.


I got a set of ssr meshes with fresh tires on them. They are 215/25/16. Let me know if ur interested. You can have them for $500 if you can come pick them up. Love the 240 btw!

Well I promised a post yesterday so here it is! Love to see all the builds. They are great!

Anyways, I picked up my new daily yesterday. I had to sell Big Bertha(silverado) cuz my wallet started hurting from all the gas it takes. So I went to my good friend Joe at Joes Used Cars and Auto-Parts and started looking. Nothing really appealed to me but atleast I sold the silverado to him. I got $3500 for it. Seems like a fair price. Lets me waste more money on the e36. Tires aint cheap u know?
Anyways after I got home I directly took the e36 and went looking for a decent daily. There are some good dealers around Valo but I only went to a couple of them. I needed a car rather quickly cuz I prefer to not use the e36 as a daily. It's for weekends and late nights!
So I found a car. Somewhat decent. I mean it's missing a bunch of trim pieces and have some missmatched doors and the le... Well heck i'll show you!





It's a tired looking old piece of sh#t Volvo 855 GLT. It's missing most of its trim. Seems like it's been in an accident since both right doors have been changed. Aswell as the front left fender. I dont know how serious the accident was but the frame seems to be ok aswell as the rest of the body. It has some rustdamage but I will investigate it more later when I get it to the shop. For now it's gonna have to do.
It's sitting on rusty steelies all around with tires with almost no thread left. Will get some slightly used ones some time in the future.

Thats it for now. If someone knows someone who might have the trimpieces missing pls let me know. I went looking today at some random junkyard but they didnt have any.

Well, i bought another car, yet unsuspected, its a 180SX :) Figured i just moved to Valo, i heard people are big with drifting here, so i went out looking for a car, found this beauty, no engine, thinking either a 4AGE or a SR20 in this beauty, and i might take a nice cruise to ebisu on a boat for some runs after i finish her up.

Hi, so long time no updates... Few things had happened since last time I posted here. Both good and bad. I'll get the bad thing out of the way first... The S15 that I had imported last year from Japan got into a car crash. What happened is that I was driving home from a car meet and two underage lads in an E36 had ran through a red light and hit me. The damage was quite bad and I decided it would be best to part it out and sell what was left from it. Now the good thing is that, over this period of time I and a few friends transformed my daily driven E34 into quite a mean track car. Power plant is the same as it was before, that is S54 with a few modifications done to it. For the exterior I bought an Ac Schnitzer kit, over fenders, 17'' Work CR-Kai wheels and few other bits and pieces. Now that I have no daily driver anymore, I'll be looking for another car which will most likely be a jap, but anything can happen.

17inch?! You do know that i got a Miata? That's way to big man

Added 13 hours 32 minutes later:

i'm gonna get in so much trouble with my cash but i couldn't resist. it was a damn steal! 1200 bucks and i bought this baby
it's a 89 180sx with a CA18DET engine, it has Bride bucket seats and a wielded diff. plus a complete new front! the previous owner told me he smashed into a car he was chasing on the track. the suspension is decent, probably needs new shocks since the front left felt weird when i braked hard. a new drift project car, finally :D the Miata will be my daily ride.

Due to heavy rain, the event was cancelled. However, this doesn't mean that ElDorado dude changed his plans. (True reason: I couldn't get Tom's Impreza to work.)

Sup guys. I sold the little Honda Fit to some kid that I know will rice it out :( But I needed the money and I have the BMW for DD now. Anyways remember the engine that was pulled from the bimmer? Well it was good so it was rebuilt and tuned so I can swap it into the Porsche.



Looks good no? I was told it pulls around 500HP on Premium gas! Mike was so pumped that he helped me install it the same day it arrived.



Fits like a glove in there :D The car was primered before, the interior was stripped and new seats installed, now its ready for AutoX! (Dont worry, original parts were saved) Also installed new wheels and tires. Later that night we sent it for some nice original Porsche paint....



Porsche Yellow! Because I love that color, and since someone messed up and too much paint was ordered...



The BMW got a fresh coat of paint too :D Hopefully someone will lend me some time on a Dyno to test both cars, I been driving the BMW for a while now since its my DD but I want to get it tuned and see how much power it makes with the supercharger and all. Also my boss Mike has two project cars that I will be working on so I might post them up for you guys to see.

Hi guys :D
Anyways,my name is Luke,i'm from Croatia ind i recently moved to Valo City.
(oh boy, this is going to be a long one *insert "that's what she said" joke here*)
So,my buddy Philip helped me with moving because he has a GMC Vandura, and i have a sorry-state looking Smart Fortwo chassis which i found for 3000$ (rusty).



Anyways, I removed the suspension(with some help,of course) and got some lower ones(all 'bout dat stance tho)



FEW DAYS LATER

I was in search for some parts,and i found two Smart wrecks(perfect...sadly,no pics since i was in a hurry,it was chilling outside),grabbed the parts(no doors) and went home (my buddy drove me,as he has an apartment here,and i'm staying at his place untill i find a decent one for myself)



more will come later...

Remember the projects I told you guys I was gonna work on with my boss? Well here is one, his old DD that was involved in an accident with a farm animal in the country side.



Its a BMW 325i Touring with a swapped V10 from an M5. It was Mike's baby and he finally decided to fix it up.

Its been on one of the lifts for a while and I was amazed to find there was little to no rust on it. We took out the parts that are going to be replaced.



Thankfully the frame has no damage so its repairable. Also it was just the front end so it should be a quick fix.



Everyone on the shop pitched in and its ready to get the new front end. If Mike can find it since he claims its somewhere in the shop along with something special he bought for the engine.

# zerito :

Bring your cars by our shop. I have a decent tuning computer and a really good dyno. I'll hook you up man, put a decent DD tune onto the Bimmer, and maybe the Porsche xD We've also had a Hunter alignment machine for a while now (4 post and everything) and if anyone needs or wants to adjust their alignment, sorta professionally, swing on by. We can set it so it thinks that up to -20 degrees or +20 degrees is aligned vertically xD

@smokiegun loving the 180 man. all these s-chassis are making me want to get another since the rest of my s14 got towed off this morning

Had an eventful day in the Lexus today. I actually went and sold the Genesis (game crasher) and looked at a couple of potential drift cars



I also made it a goal today the hit the tire shop and get my vxs210's switched over to the isF. I snagged them before I sold the Hyundai. I now have a set of 19x10 Work meisters for sale if anyone is interested. Shot a pic while filling up. She is so monster truck status I think i'm gonna get some coilovers for her tomorrow



After a tiresome day I finally got her home. Better luck tomorrow I guess

@Driftphantom Thanks bro spent over $6,000 in spare parts and just bought her as a rolling chassis for $200, pride and joy! The hood came open while i was drifting today too XD. The struggle is real, just looking around on Craigslist on some cheap potential builds. Good luck man, i got you too. just moved to Valo about Two 1/2 weeks ago, struggling to find my way around town. I'm up in North Valo if you ever needed the directions. :p

Big update on the C10 Crewcab, got a lot of parts over the past couple days and I'm excited to show them off after having installed them.

First things first, I was hearing some creaking from the rear end while driving around a couple hours after my last post about the C10. Took a closer look and the whole rear drive train was looking a little... sad. So it got pulled out and replaced by a setup from a 1992 Silverado 3500 Dually.





I got new wheels to fit, and now the C10 is a dually (Which is what I originally wanted when I was looking for a crew cab anyway, but they're damn rare.)

Drove with that for a few days and no issues, then I had word on a truck bed in good condition. Only thing is now it would not fit on my truck. I got it anyway, and then immediately got to work measuring and then cutting the fenders. They were cut and then primed so that I could weld on some over fenders, which were actually just C10 stepside fenders that I retro fitted on.





So with that done, I also got some rear tail lights that fit (because it's illegal not to have tail lights :)) ) and then I had someone make a tailgate for my, as I couldn't find an original (besides one in terrible condition). It wasn't perfect so I got some locks for it, which also adds to the Frankenstein vibe the truck is starting to get.





The interior has also been done. Originally only had one bench seat that I got from the truck I bought off Coprone, but I found another one in worse condition and had both of them reupholstered in solid black.

So that's where it's at right now. I'll leave with some pictures of the truck exposed and open to show it off a little more.




I need to get this thing painted (as well as have rust repairs done) in the near future. For now, this is how she sits.

Do it for the ratchets
