Found myself over on Street Source the other day where I came across this pretty cool Chevy Luv build.
After a long period of ignoring his Luv, builder Daniel Maxwell decided that when the truck was fit for the streets it needed to be body dropped. The problem was he decided this after already putting a decent amount of work into it.
If you were to ask my late nineties self whether or not I liked the LS400 I my answer would have been no, partially because I was a dumb kid and partially because I wasn't much into luxury sedans, especially ones that were often two tone.
Over time my tastes have matured and like a fine wine the LS400 has got better with age to the point where if I were in the market for big luxury sedan one of these would float to the top of my list.
I'm sure many of you have seen these photos already but I am going to post it here anyway because I am that pumped on the idea of a bagged, LS powered, s14 drift car.
When I was at the Air Lift factory back in March I had the opportunity to take a look at an early production version of their Nissan s14 kit and at the time they didn't say much either way about whether or not it would be released officially.
This Courier ended up on my screen a couple months ago while gathering photos for a Theme Tuesday and quite honestly blew me away.
I'm not sure I have ever seen a Courier before (stock or otherwise) so happening across this was pretty rad, more rad is the fact that it is an Ontario build.
Back when the site was in its infancy one of the first people outside of Canada to submit photos was Julian. Known online as Sleepy Wagon Julian owned an immaculate low, flush, Impreza wagon that always sat perfect no matter what wheels were under it.
Currently Julian whips an Lexus LS400 and in his signature fashion it's not only low and fitted, it's exceptionally clean.
To some a lowered Subaru is a wasted Subaru, and a bagged Subaru is a complete abomination.
Those individuals are typically purists who don't really believe that people are free to do whatever they want to the car they currently own for better or for worse. In the case of this Subaru, in my opinion, putting bags on it was for the better.
2JZ motors remind me of the LS motor because, like the Chevy V8, people love to shoehorn Toyota's straight six into any engine bay big enough to hold it (and a few that are not).
Other imports, domestics, European cars, and even a couple trucks have all been given 2JZ heart transplants over the years.
