Default Car Crazy Caribbean Style

Since I had to spend the day at the shop I decided to take pics of some of the cars currently there.

This first one is a race prepared Toyota Corolla weighing 2,000 lbs which used to have a large single turbo on a 2JZ 6 cylinder engine.

Best 1/4 mile time then was: 9.15 sec.

It's now getting prepared with 2 Greddy turbos.

A few more pics:

The guy on the left on the first pic is my tuner.

Second pic is of a very fast Supra waiting for a US$4,000.00 diff (****!)

The third is an Altezza with the Supra twin turbo engine also (I'm discovering that local guys just love the 2JZ engine )

You should convince your tuner to sponsor a 2JZ swap on your miata then.

Looks like a very nice shop that does nice work for plenty of fairly wealthy cutomers though.

I wouldn't need much to convince him

I'm plenty happy with my little, gay 1.8 L, 4 cylinder Miata

I'm the only cheap *** among his customers!

There's also a couple of WRX and a few others. I'll take more pics tomorrow.
