University of Colorado Sports Car Club car show/meet in Westminster, Colorado. I took so few photos because to me there were so few cars worth shooting. Most of these tuner shows are made up of Evos and STis with the same mods you see in traffic every day, and cars that to my eye look like corners were cut. I walked right past most of the event, it was kinda sad...
My favorite of the Skylines, the R33. The black on bronze TE37s with a near-stock body is the perfect look. Certain years are technically legal now, but I am debating getting an R33 GT-R after they turn 25 and start flooding into the US.
Very clean R32 right next to it.
Wheel and tire fitment could have been better on the blue car, but it seems hard to ruin an FD RX-7. Still one of the most beautiful cars ever made, I think.
Buick Grand National. Sleeper-ness aside, it's amazing how all it takes to make a Regal look mean is blacking everything out.
Very classy look on this Merc. And I accidentally got a shot that turned out pretty good!
I'm considering painting mine white, but it is a bit common.
Clean S30Z on what look to be Work Meister S1R knock-offs.
On a very serious note, a GC coupe is the most likely candidate for my next all-out project car after the Accord. I've wanted an Impreza STI since I first played Gran Turismo (2) in 1999. I got excited when Subaru finally started selling them in the States in 2003 or so, but then they got so popular that it turned me off of the newer models. I see a few around, but GCs still aren't terribly popular because they take real work to make them fast. But: do I turbo, or go completely crazy and do a high-compression all motor build with custom pistons and all that? I'm still more into handling than power, so if I could wring out just 300whp with natural aspiration, it's a possibility.
R32 Skyline sedan. This car didn't seem to be getting the attention that the GT-R got, but it's a cool stand-out choice for sure.
Right-hand drive AE86 Corolla Levin coupe.
Very cool old Saab 96. Interesting to note is that one of the engines available for these from the factory was a Ford V4 - you read that right, a four-cylinder V engine, not a traditional inline. I didn't get so see if this was a V4 or I3 model.
Obviously I love a good wagon. This Cressida looks a bit rough...
but it's got a Supra 2JZGTE under the hood!
Dig the side-exit exhaust on this Mercedes! These wagons are inspiring me to keep mine looking stock for a while, just to surprise people with the power. I have big plans for the body and paint, but I've also got a weakness for sleepers.
