He's got a point. I would be careful when designing the place to not make any part of it too specialized. There's a really good chance that you'll need to open up your track to other forms of...

The older ones can be had for as little as $1500 in stock form and, because of their popularity, replacement and performance...

Without the lug nuts on the ground, there's nothing about the character that really says "drifting", imo. He just looks like he's holding smoking guns, which is cool in it's own right, but doesn't...

Really clean car, that's the kind of thing you hold on to for another 10 or 15 years. Then you've got yourself a nice little classic on your hands.
