September 2015 ROTM Entries

Hey Guys,

The time has come for the September 2015 ROTM entries. Let's try to get some nice pictures in here.
Not only do you get to show off your ride but also your amazing camera skillz!

Here are the rules:

3 photos; no more, no less. NO collages.
Modifications list if you prefer

*Pictures must be of current state of car... only exception is winter tires. Parts currently for sale or waiting to be installed may not be included. If your wheels/retros/suspension/etc. are currently for sale, even if still on car, they cannot be listed in the mod list. Cars that are currently for sale may not be submitted. No "Future Modifications" either*

Remember, please post your entries and pictures in this thread.

So now through September 21st: Submission Entries. Please post your entries and pictures in this thread. (Submissions after 11:59PM on the 21st will not be included in the competition)

September 22nd through end of the month: A poll will be added containing the entered submissions. A voting poll will be created so that all members get the chance to vote on their favourite. The person with the most votes at the end of the month will be the winner for the month!


Oh and here's a cool ride:

This car is the first professional LS1 installation in the US and was the prototype used by John’s Cars in Dallas, TX to develop the conversion components he now sells worldwide. Throughout the development my guidelines were for the installation to have OEM appearance and daily driver reliability. The nod was always given toward reliability and ease of maintenance vs. extreme performance. The development took 14 months back in 2003/4 and resulted in this car and the kit components.
One difference in this car versus the components provided to others is that this car has no transmission mount. Instead, it has a modified “torque tube” set-up similar to a C5 Corvette which hard connects the rear of the T56 transmission to the nose of the R200 limited slip differential. It is unique, totally functional, and has been absolutely reliable over the past 12 years.

In the past 22 years the car has been driven over 140,000 miles, about 100,000 of it since it was painted in 1997.

I have competed the car at Texas Motor Speedway, Texas Motorplex, Motorsport Ranch, Renegade Raceway, and also hill climb and autocross events.
