Because Supra: JZA80 Appreciation

I don’t usually post Friday through the weekend but I found these amazing Pics via Stanceworks – M.Burroughs and my jaw dropped. There’s just a few cars that are truly timeless in design and the JZA80 Mark IV supra is one of them. Body lines flow so well and we all know the 2JZ-GTE is one of the best motors out there. Iron block twin turbo out the factory back in the 90’s is total genius for it’s era. The pics below give me a total appreciation the JZA80 platform. Simple, clean with factory aero and still makes you stop and stare.

Coverage: Autocon – LA: Santa Anita Park, Arcadia

July 21st 2012 Autocon brought a car show to Santa Anita Park in Arcadia for the first time. (From my experiences in the show scene i think this was the first time it’s been held there).

Lance Uchida a part of Bob’s Your Uncle took quite a few pics from the event so bare with us for more pics as we go through them and pick out the ones that stand out.

If you didn’t get the opportunity to go to the show, here’s the coverage:

Enjoy.

Michael Mao’s NSX is well known in the show scene and it’s no surprise why.

Joey Lee from the Chronicles sick Q45 on the pavement .. love the Equips!

CCW’s never get old . . Supra + CCW classics = Awesome!

Big Mike’s Prelude looking clean as usual. So nice.

Throwback: Curtis Chen’s Supra

I’ve always been a fan of the homie Curtis Chen’s Supra project back when it looked like the 1st pic below and as his project progressed and when it was put into action my jaw dropped and being able to see the changes and challenges this Supra has been through was great. I always used to see Curtis and the car and the shop i frequented a lot called in Creative in Sante Fe Springs and seeing the track prep was always cool. Having experience with Time attack events and winning the Castrol Syntec Top Car challenge in 2010 this car has done it all.

Castrol challenge: line up

Da Blackmobile: Is Wider Better? *Feature*

Sirv also known as Da Blackmobile on the Supra Forums car is, bad ass and one of the cleanest Supra’s I’ve seen. It’s WIDE! haha Custom metal body work that cost the homie a pretty penny was the start of his build then came the custom TRD that was extended 4 inches all around with a custom Top Secret front bumper. Wing was a Modellista Design Uchida carbon fiber wing that was actually made off his Supra.

Wheels I know you’re wondering are HRE 540’s with the fronts being 20 X 10.5 and the rears a staggering 20 X 13 with a 335/30/20 Michelin PS2’s. Tires that wide are always hard to find.

Sirv being a photographer himself took the pics (which is always awesome for me). Makes it a lot easier to do the features. He even had his model friend Chava model for some pics adding to the cool factor of doing a shoot on your own .

Enjoy:
