No paint, all marine grade carpet :)

That blue looks so much better after the bath.
Thanks! Still lots of branch scrapes but I’m ok with that ... :)
My new Dodge Ram got “pin striped” shortly after I bought it last year. Took it up a 4x4 trail that was about 2ft too narrow. Lol.

Damn dude!!! That's what the Defender looked like too!

A lot of it washed off, but man the passenger side is still pretty rough. I just try to park in a way I don’t have to see it! Image

Got to see a red one today up close. 51K plus 5K adjusted market value or some BS. Nice and all, but for that kind money, I'll pass for something else.

Yeah, $60K for a Toyota is a non-starter for me.

The Supra is testing a lot faster as well. Too bad it looks like the penis car from the ambiguously gay duo in SNL.

Saw a new Supra in person today. It's nice, just not $50K nice IMO. I also am not sure the styling is going to date that well.

It lacks a defining visual element. I look at it and nothing sticks in my head.

Gave it another good look today. I just don't know. Maybe it looks Toyotaish...

I remember seeing brand new Supra Turbos in the lot of the DTLA Toyota dealer for ~$40k. Beautiful cars then. I think they’re showing their age now but still nice.

Comment by a guy this morning: "It looks incredibly Japanese. Not that that's a bad thing." Sums it up for me. I kinda want one, but it would be nicer with more classic styling, fewer fake vents, and an MT.

Everyone said similar things about the GT-R. Those cars are great, and cost significantly more than the Supra. I like it, but would end up with a lightly used 7MT Carrera for that $$.

Lots of choices at that price point, especially if you include lightly used.

A lot of people don’t realize how small an NSX is in person. It’s gorgeous.

Love the original NSX. Now that's a timeless design. Special cars. Watch the values start exploding.
