I've seen Dano's car take shape over the past few years. He's put a lot of time & sweat into it to make it a really fun ride!

102

matt panics celica is way cooler than described

103

The RB26 S12 for the win!

104

I can't even choose! The Europa, the Galant, 4A-GE Celica, the '72 240Z, or that KE70 with the crazy engine or even the beautiful S15?! I would also vote for the red S13 or the white FD3S, but I'm sure those cars were already fatured on the site a long time ago, so IMO, not 2011 cars (even though they're marvelous!)



I will go for the "unloved" Galant!

105

This was soo hard, I literally have some form of attachment to 10 of these cars, and the rest are just as rad!

106

Stephen's bmw e30 is toooooo dope!

107

there is only one choice ... Euro wins...

Choix difficile... Je vote la Silvia S12, mais j'adore la Datsun 510 !

111

Great list, but that E28 is too good not to vote for

112

some really nice cars, but wow. The harness bar in the celica in that opening shot is at completely the wrong angle, wouldn't like to be in that thing in an accident!

114

Loving the E28!

115

hella tight!

116

sweet Nissan

118

although my S2000 was nominated (thanks speedhunters!), I've always had a soft spot for 993 Porsche's. :)

119

r31 skyline ftw, :)

120

well its an amazing e28 has to be my second fav besides rusty i think this car is just awesome the 1jz suits the car very well its look sick with the chrome HRE 504's and its just a very classy looking car

121

That GT500 made me cream my pants

123

Buckey and his FC FTW dude is legit in what he does

124

126

That r31 is balls to the walls awesome. Voted.

127

134

aswesome street car

135

Throw the keys to all of 'em on a table and tell me I can have just one, I'm grabbing that tastefully done Supra over the RWB Porsche. Honorable mentions go out to a sick Turbo g-body buick, a pair of really nice sw20 mr2s, and I'm always a sucker for an s15 (and it's shiny black, which I like. I've been over the matte and satin look for a while.)

136

That e28 is the nuts.. voted for sure!!

137

Buckey gots this that rx7 is sick

138

princtons porsche i picked the red e30 was dope but why not put a newer bmw engine into it (s50) ughh i would have voted for it also very nice 7 or 5 series imported again i dont liek the diff engine haha ( bmw enthusiast )

145

Hands down the best looking Datsun I have ever layed eyes on.

Never let that thing go. Simply perfection.

146

E28 e30 and r31

147

Mark's R31 ftw!

It's even better in person!

148

C. Gryffin's S12 had me at hello, then Stephen's BMW E30 had me at SR20, but once i saw Sunny's 240Z sitting in the grass like a kid playing i was sold! damn i needa win the lotto

149

def a lot of nice cars; hard to choose

151

that B.R.E S14 has got to be the the best S14 out you can tell that car was built by a shop that knows what a one of a kind S14 needs to look like

152

Steve's E30 for the win! He's worked hard on that car!

153

Colin fix your damn saggy ass grandma tits lip and get yourself some fresh new kicks. Still love your car it was a hard choice that r34 sedan was begging me to pick it. Naturally I kept my vote to bro's before hoes

154

sum serious machines there

155

Great Car.....

156

too many sick cars to choose from. i broke it down to Hung's Supra and Matthew's Celica. The Supra is my dream car but the Celica is my current project car. I have a '73 Celica. so i voted for the Celica

157

shouldve been more readers ride up there, the one i submitted isnt up there either. nor is Josh's cobalt i sent to you guys a while back. lame.

158

Unfair to many awesome rides to choose from. I picked the Miata though. Something about it just screams sleeper and I did it myself and took my time doing it.

159

Love the E28.

160

It was realy hard to vote, but I follow my heart ;) It's Raymond's Evo X - Thanks Ray for giving the world a nice car like this ;)

161

Awesome S14 Matt. Weapon on the track!

162

@brian: couldn't stomach an M motor in an non M car. plus you will get more torque and possibly better weight distribution from the turbo 4.

163

I go for the VQ Sentra!!! Good Luck Carlos!!

164

Can't beat a lime 240z!!

165

What is the criteria for nomination?? Cars from Japan not considered?? Some are good, but I know that many better cars were mailed in.

166

Fox Skyline- unbeatable in 32 class. I hope Justin Reading this- IMO world best R32!

167

This is a hard one, all of these owners have poured there hearts into this machines, so its hard to pick a clear deserving winner...

168

Andy's Miata makes it happen "quick".

169

My car made it on here? Proud moment! :) Everyone's cars look awesome.

170

hardest catagory yet, gota love the gt500 shelby tho

173

Mattys car rocks. A lot sleepier looking thn itreally is.

177

andys miata FTW!

178

Andy's Miata. But had that Fiat gone with a cbr1100, I would have chose that. (= That BRE is quite tough as well.

179

By far the hardest category to vote on, too many amazing choices

180

Justin Fox's BNR32 <3



286

Awesome number of responses. These awards are great. Supra gets the nod for me!

287

I wish we can vote 2 cars... Because I both like the Initial D replica, and the Galannt... I only voted for the 86.

288

Thanks for all the support with my Miata guys- it really means a lot. I am honored to be in the running with all these amazing machines.

289

I like all of them

291

This was too hard! I the end I chose the car I'd most like to own of the group if I could only have one and settled on Lucas' Evo X.

292

It's awesome to see a few NW cars on here! Thanks again for nominating me (Celica). I'm honored to see my picture on the main page. All of these cars are great. I can't even begin to guess who the winner will be. Good luck everyone.



@Andrew, I think it's just the angle of the picture. The harness bar is slightly higher than my shoulders. As far as I know, that's where it should be. If I'm wrong please let me know. I want to be as safe as possible.



293

The only real car here. GT 500

294

that s15 is pure sex.

295

I am very happy my car got a nomination. But i must admit it is up against some amazing cars.

I love the 240Z



If any one are interested, here is some more pics of my Lotus Europa. The text is unfortunately in Danish.

298

Hung's supra is the ultimate ride...

299

Seen this beautiful RX-7 drive around town a few times and it just put a smile of my face!!!! Next time I seen the FD was at MidWest Drift. I must say the Mazda sounds phenomenal and everyone at the event saw what a machine it is, even tho Derek really wasn't pushing the FD at all........ I wish I would have been able to see the full extent of that RX-7 at other events. But I didn't get a chance to go, reason "always working" :( At least I have memories "Photos & Videos" from MidWest Drift :D

Steve's E30! think is so proper in person.



(to the m50 swap comment)



At that height, bmw pan would be sitting on the ground.

336

That s14 by BRE get's my vote, It's not just a LS7 swap.

The engine is down and back as far as possible. Tubing is integrated THROUGH the framerails of the car. The rear subframe is relocated and welded solid into the chassis. Carbon fiber dash.

BRE full custom wiring harness

BRE full custom exhaust work

BRE oil system by Dailey Engineering, billet oil pan, custom dry sump tank separated in rear of car.

This car has thousands of hours. TOOO much to list...

346

Honda K-powered S13 Silvia, just because it goes against the norm. And one of the few cars I saw before being posted in this Vote

365

I've seen this S12 in a few publications and it's gone through some extensive mods, i always like seeing Nissan joining the ranks.

367

Black SW20 all the way. That thing looks exotic!

368

They all deserve to win. Damn. :)

369

Buckeys rx7.. yummy! ;)

372

So many incredible cars!!! I love 'em all. Gonna vote for Andy's Miata 'cause I've seen it up close and it's truly impressive. Not many cars built like his in New England.

373

376

Raymond's Evo X - awesome. But also hard to vote. This Car collection is sssssoooo nais ...

Beautiful cars!!! I think the American 87 Buick Regal T really caught my eye though. That car is sick and you hardley ever see them around unlike the rest of the car.

385

Most insane body I have ever seen! BRE s14 is awesome

386

BRE s14 is hot, love the color and the fab work.

387
