Very plain, slow, semi-black 2000 GT (AKA "Where O' where, has my 3G gone?" 56k=no)

Updated 3/17
Updated 2/21

Massive update on page 2 courtesy of Muellerized.

I figure since you probably won't ever see my car much different appearance-wise then it is now, I can at least wow you with some places its been. They are all at the bottom. As well you can see many of them all in in my album, The Black Thing. All of the pictures are on my PBase account at The 3G Diary

The car is now over 20 years old (Built in June 2000), which in of itself is pretty darn scary and surprising.

I stick to rear quarter shots because I don't want anyone to see my super secret front bumper mod;)

Seriously, the front my car is uber destroyed. From the peeling headlights, to the rock pitted bumper and hood it just looks like a complete shitbox.

yikes! although I'm sure that's very hard to avoid with the weather in Wisconsin

back on topic though, I like both sets of wheels, mike, but I agree, I would save the Kosei's for the track. Nice lookin' car, keep it up!

:eek2: I wanna move to California...well, that part of it.

I dunno, I know there's 2 completely different opinions on this, but I really don't think that any color of 3G looks quite right without a spoiler. But that's just me. Other than that it's nice and clean - nothing like a shiny black car :twothumb:

Yeah, for the longest time I liked the spoiler, and still do to a certain extent. Thanks to seeing Sam's car without one it got me thinking about it. Every since I took it off I like the sleak look of the black 3G without the spoiler. I would like to remove the rear wiper as well since I really don't use it, and would help to make it even more sleak, but don't feel like spending the money to have the trunk lid redone.

I have yet to actually go to any of the tracks around here, but it is definitely something I want to do.

As far as roads go, the Sequoia/King's Canyon drive is awesome, the only problem is that it is usually crowded as all get out. I find the drive to the coast, on either the 46 or 41 is friggin awesome. The backroads up to San Jose and the road through the Angeles National Forrest are of the same quality, but usually almost deserted.
