Hey there's my car! Can't believe it's already been a whole year since I started. I need to pick up the pace.

There's another "rice rod" packing a 2JZ turbo swap. Which is something I've really wanted to do with a leadslead or late 30's early 40's coupe.

I don't know. There's something F-U about import swaping a vintage 30's domestic that is just right up my alley. I think it's sort of the reverse of LS Swapping imports. But I do support 1UZ Lexus V8 Swaps as well.

I think this car manages to piss off everyone except GRM'ers

Geezers: WTF jap engine?

JDM crowd: WTF all this effort but no turbo on your 2J?

Flat-brim crowd: WTF ricer engine and low but no camber?

Wife: WTF no A/C?

This gave me a good chuckle.  Thanks for that.
