Sorcery NSX: Beauty

I don’t think much introduction is needed for this build. But in case you don’t know this is a friend of mines Tony Khamly beautiful NSX with full Sorcery Kit. The front bumper was modified to his liking and i think it made a huge difference. Love every bit of this car. Supercharged, Volk CE28N and wide!  

From Across the Pond: Hachiroku

I wanted to introduce this car state side. We all love the Hachiroku and this one was too amazing not to share with our followers. I was lucky enough to get these photos and make an attempt at sharing them with the fans here in the US. I don’t want to bore you with the details because I think the details are in the pictures. Enjoy! 

Interior only a drifter/ racer could love. 

And … If you’re wondering what’s power this car and what to take a peak under the hood… here you go. SR20DET dressed up with a custom valve cover Garrette turbo and all the fixins.

BobsYrUncle Crew: Las Vegas IS300 Feature

When you think of the Toyota/Lexus the platforms that come to mind are GSs, SCs, LSs, and of course Supras.  Then a few seconds goes by and you say “oh yeah I forgot about the IS”.  No matter how many ISs you see, the platform always seems to play second fiddle to those others.  But we this is one IS that does standout.

Say hello to BYU’s very own Leroy Taylor and his 2001 IS300.  Leroy was first introduced to the IS in 2003 when he joined Team Lexus, the former factory race team for Lexus of North America.  Before he ever owned his IS, Leroy was out there in Grand-Am Cup racing watching the cars that he and his teammates built winning races.  It wasn’t until 2005 when Leroy decided to buy himself a Spectra Blue Mica 2001 IS as a Christmas gift to himself.

As it is for all enthusiasts, we tend to envision all the different things we want to do to our cars.  We fantasize about all the different looks, setups, colors, specs, etc. that we want to one achieve.  Leroy has been fortunate enough to have just that.  When he first started modding his IS in the spring of 2006 Leroy kept it simple.  He slammed it on springs, through on 17” BBS RKs, exhaust, and a C-West kit.  Since then the car has gone through a lot of changes.  He would eventually ditch the C-West kit for and Wald kit and JDM bumpers, another set of BBSs before up sizing to 19” AME Spec Ms, a TRD CF hood, and upgrading for springs to HKS coilovers.

Just when Leroy thought he was finished, he discovered BN Sports.  After moving from Baltimore, MD to Las Vegas, NV in 2009, Leroy parted out his Wald kit for the BN Sports type II kit, sold his AMEs for Work Equips, swapped his stock seats for carbon Kevlar buckets and 6-pt harness, TRD chassis braces, and several additional suspension components.

Leroy never wanted to boost his IS and go very heavy with every top shelf part available. With his professional racing experience behind him he tends to only want to see cars race on the track. Leroy wanted something simpler and easier drive as daily.  He wanted a car that he can show with but still enjoy everyday on the street, so opted to keep the car low and slow, while break-neck gorgeous. Leroy’s future plans for his IS are simple.  In his words all he wants to do is “drive it and enjoy it.” These days Leroy and his IS can be seen cruising the Vegas streets and garnering attention wherever he goes.  So if you’re ever in Vegas, be on the lookout.

EVO X: TrackFun

Time flew by so quickly I meant to do a couple updates this week but I was only able to bring you one. So I’m bringing you another feature vehicle. This time track side. Thought I’d try and see we can fire out a BobsYrUncle crew or supporter feature once a week.
This is a homie of mine, Daniel Park. he recently sent me these pics of his Evo X at ButtonWillow and I thought they were blog worthy, definitely wanted to share. Hopefully we can make it out to the track and get some coverage ourselves. But till then these pics will have to do.

Enjoy

Miata Mayhem: Perzbenz Edition

We’re glad to bring you a feature from time to time and this time we have a friend Sean Alinaghian’s 1992 Mazda Miata. He just recently sold it because the car was at a point where it just needed either boost or a new power plant to be complete and he decided he’d rather go on to building another car.  We’ll update more pictures on the Bobsyruncle fanpage if you want to see more of Sean’s Miata.
