Back to Basics

Before I do something crazy with the car I wanted to shoot it before any drifting starts this year. I’ve been drifting this car since 2003 and its been and still will be my favorite car I’ve ever owned. So much has been done to this car after the crashes, kit explosions and paint job that I honestly thought of putting it away for good. But that idea didnt last long..

Drifting season is about to start again and since the car is clean, I thought it would be a good opportunity to shoot the car in the studio at the fatlace paddock. If anyone’s interested in shooting their car inside our paddock, hit up fatlacegarage@gmail. com / Photos by Jon

I dont think I’ve ever put specs of the car but here it is..
