The Veilside Supra was a game changer, it spawned a whole body kit movement in the late 90’s. I remember one of my friends had the veilside bumper on his 96 civic coupe, and another on his 95 prelude, and a few years later on the hero car in the prolific car movie, The Fast and the Furious. At the time, the styling was revolutionary. The Swooping lines, all the vents and that pedestal style wing. Also new, was the JDM Wheels, the Veilside Andrew Racing V Wheels. The Veilside Andrew Racing V feature a thick 5 spoke design with a unique center cap covering the lug nuts. The Veilside Andrew Racing V were manufactured by SSR Wheels and featured 2 piece construction.

I was watching a replay of the Barret Jackson Auction Scottsdale 2011 on Speed Channel the other day and spotted this 1985 Porsche 911 wearing a nice set of one of our favorite wheels: the BBS RS. This spiecimen of RS appears to be of the 16″ variety, and color coded to the Porsche’s hue of red. They also sport full height caps and look to be at around 10″ wide in the rear. This Porsche sports a Slant Nose front end and isn’t bad either. – BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions
The Porsche ended up selling for almost $35k

Adam gettin’ down on the track!
Many celebrities are known for thier car collection. Jay Leno has whole warehouse full of unique cars. Tim Allen and Frankie Munoz have thier collections. Jerry Sienfeld as a nice Porsche collection. Now what sets Comedian and host of “The Car Show’s” Adam Carolla’s Car Collecion Apart? He Collects Datsuns, yes the common man’s econobox maker from Japan, Datsun. Don’t get him wrong, he does have Lambo’s and Ferrari’s, but he has some nice top notch Historical Datsuns.
What a beautifully restored s30
“Scattered throughout the room, bathed in natural light from large windows, we found a Datsun Camel GT pace car built by Bob Sharp parked next to a Paul Newman / Bob Sharp Racing IMSA 300ZX. A few feet away, sitting next to the tool cabinets with its rear wheels riding on rollers to ease movement around the shop, was a custom Datsun Roadster 1600 racer with radically-flared fenders in bright orange. (Adam hasn’t raced each of these, and he may never, but he currently participates in his share of on-track competitions in his stunning Bob Sharp Datsun 610.)”
