****.

This thread made me all weepy and nostalgic, so I started googling.

Turns out there are still several BBSes online (accessible via Telnet) which host TradeWars2002.

There goes the rest of my free time for the next year...

WOW! That ************ is BAD ***! Not like most sort of boring GTR's, if you can call any of them that really. Sexy lines, and super sexy sounds.

All the videos I can find of that one are just extreme cocktease. :(



I guess its built on a 4 liter lexus V8 platform, which I'm seeing several more of those now.. Supposedly ~1200hp..

I wonder if it's actually the 4.3 V8, since I think those are SC430 headlights. At least they have a very similar shape, and it would make sense that maybe he had a donor car for all of that stuff.

I'm with you 100% on those headlights without a doubt. Can't find any build specs or other information on the car either so now I'm very curious what hes hiding..

After finding a few twin-turbo SC430s online it sounds like a pretty legit method..





(Not the same car.. just too sexy not to post)

I've always like the SC430 and now they are affordable but I wouldn't want to imagine the maintenance costs on that retractable hardtop. Has anyone seen what an ordeal it is to get a 3000GT Spyder's top serviced?

Resist the urge. It is not 1995 and you will not enjoy the game. It will ruin your fond memories and you will be a grumpy old man like me. I rediscovered telnet BBSes 8 years ago and the magic is definitely gone.

If you want to relive some stuff (well, at least it was reliving from my perspective as a sysop) watch this:

Of course it does. That design could never work in real life. It's just cool as hell to see someone build something I drooled over constantly when I was a geeky kid.

So what you're saying is that it's basically the same as every other high-dollar custom chopper coming out of the specialty bike shops that we see on TV these days.

It's still pretty.

Now, would someone please build a Recognizer?
