Okay everybody I finally took some pictures of my car. I wanted to have some memory of what it looked like perfectly stock. <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.liquid2k.com/nwg20s/pictures/trbobrk001.jpg"> <BR>Almost look like it is on a track. Then you see the utility box.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.liquid2k.com/nwg20s/pictures/trbobrk002.jpg"> <BR>Much better with orange sunset and black siloette trees. Stupid clouds moved in right at the end of the day.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.liquid2k.com/nwg20s/pictures/trbobrk003.jpg"> <BR>Infiniti emblems for the last time.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.liquid2k.com/nwg20s/pictures/trbobrk004.jpg"> <BR>In front of my house. Yes we do have a lot of rhodendrens, about 75.<BR>

Wow, Colin, your car looks like it came from the showroom floor back in 1993.5! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Have you already picked the rims that you are going to put on the car? I would be interested on the cars progress as well.<P>-Drew

It is easier to buy a used Japenese engine with 30K miles shiped to US and swap the engine in.<P>

Colin,<P>Your car is lookin good. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Isn't it funny how in the U.S. everyone is so 'clear-corner' mod crazy, but in Japan and Sweden for example, it is the exact opposite from what I hear. I wonder if things here will ever turn around...<P>-Drew

If one was better than the other, than I think people would all go for the same look.<P>

I like orange so I went with that.<P>Back in the 70s USA didn't have yellow turn signals and so the cool thing to do was to get the yellow ones from Europe. Europe wanted the clear lenses so after a while they started makeing cars with clear and we got the yellow.<P>I think we are at the start of a new cycle where cars in the USA are comming with clear or the clear are so readly available that amber will slowly become more desireable.<P>
