FC Favourites

Fast Car - - Over There -

One thing you’ll al­ways find at SEMA is that you’ll come away with plenty of per­sonal in­spi­ra­tion for cars you’d love to own, and it’s no dif­fer­ent for me and Jules. In all the years we’ve been com­ing, we’ve never agreed on our favourite mo­tors, but that’s a good thing. The world would be far more bor­ing if we all did that, right? Any­way, just in case you were wondering, here’s what grabbed our at­ten­tion…

Jules: Lexus LC 500 & Mazda RX-7 FC

I’ve had a soft spot for the FC se­ries of the Mazda RX-7 ever since my Dad bought one when I was about eight-years-old. So, when I saw this Pan­dem-kit­ted beast on the Toyo stand I in­stantly fell in love. Look out for a full fea­ture on this RX soon. The other car that I couldn’t stop look­ing at was this bagged Lexus LC 500, it was ab­so­lutely stun­ning and I want it. Un­for­tu­nately I haven’t got £7.50 in my bank (es­pe­cially af­ter Ve­gas), let alone £75,000 to buy one!

Midge: Ford Star­liner & Audi R8

“There’s not a car here I wouldn’t want to own to be hon­est, but if I have to pick one to bring home, and ob­vi­ously by that I mean two, it’d be Bev’s Ford Star­liner. Ex­pertly re­stored by Wal­ton Cus­toms, and pack­ing a Coy­ote crate V8, it has to be one of the most im­mac­u­late Yanks I’ve ever seen. I’d also like the camo-car­bon R8 V10 on the X Force Stand please, purely for the crazy spoiler-mounted roof box. Ob­vi­ously, I’d look a bit of a dick tool­ing around Dart­ford in that one, but I’d never get all my tools and stuff in a nor­mal R8 would I? In fact, I might even con­sider chop­ping in my Navara for one of those. I won­der if they sell those boxes in Hal­fords?”
