Hey Guys...

These pics are really nice... however...Unfortunately the pics of Cruz's car just dont do it justice... you have to see this in person to really see how badaSS and Clean it really is...

After driving Cruz's ride... I have to say that I am fairly disappointed when steppin back into my coupe... =P

i cant get over the look of your car from the side... maybe its just me but it looks like the car is REALLY short (almost like an integra or something). i know how big coupes are in real life but to me the pics just look funny, maybe its the angles.

dont get me wrong, you have a sweet ride!

I can guess why you get that illusion. I had the same problem a while ago. Some coupes would look "fatter" than others to me till I figured why. it is coz of the painted side skirts. Coupes with painted side skirts look like they have "increased" body height while lenght is still the same. unlike ones which still have the side skirts black.
Remember the coupe is only 2 inches shorter than a Lexus LS400..

But you are still one of the few fortunate owners to drive a manual G2 Coupe though. I guess the grass is always greener on the otherside huh. :D

[email protected]: No contest here.. I think Dawk has done alot more to his Coupe, than I have to mine. Plus he's rolling on 19's... :D

Leon Millette: Thanks... but there are other Legends that belong in the calender before my Coupe. Like acuralegend.com, Type II 19's :D , ChrisK, Alexander 19's :D , MC (91 Coupe @ Carlisle PA, I always liked SSR Integral's), David aka thepearlwhitelegend 19's :D , Silver Legend Coupe with C5's (I think it belongs to Kevon), Mark's Red Coupe, Dawk 19's :D and Edub (the first and only fixed up 91 Gold Coupe LS that I have seen.. Very clean..) And that's just some of the Coupes, there are alot of Sedans that should go on the calender. I'm just glad, I don't have to make the decision of which Legend does and which Legend does not.

Edub: thanks... the check is in the mail..

Darkstar: thanks..

Alexander: thanks..

AzLSCoupe: thanks for the explanation.. I thought it might have that affect, because of the resolution I used with my digital camera.

SpeedDemon: The Advans AVS Model 5's are 18x7.5 with a +50 offset. The tires are Pirelli SuperSport P7000 225x40x18.

Mike,

That is looking sweet, love the color.
Advans are some very nice rims, expensive too.
How much did those babies set you back?

I remember when my bro got his 17" Advan TCs, they were like $500 apiece and they weren't even 2 or 3 pieces.

A friend of mine has a Skyline R32 that has limited edition SA3R with the single racing lug. Torque on the nut is like 135lb. Only 5 sets in the States.

Type II: A friend of mine got them for me through a contact he had in Japan, I paid $1,600.00 plus $200.00 for shipping, duty and tax.

Your friends R32 is tight!!! What size rims are they? 18's or 19's How much was the conversion to a single lug set-up?

Triton3K: Thanks... Dawk has done more to his coupe than I have. Like I said before.. He's rolling on 19's!!! I'm not brave enough to roll on 19's. 18's are as high as I will go.. At least for now :D :D :D

MikeD: Thanks... I may consider selling my US spec headlights and corner lights. However, I don't know how much the shipping would cost. And I would be concerned of any damage that may happen during the shipping process. Let me know what you think..
