    I recently got my buddy Costas to do a final photoshoot of my previous daily driver. I spent the last 6 years modding it and taking it to shows with my team, www.teamsunworks.com. I moved on to bigger, greener pastures when I upgraded to my 09 taco. I have never really been an import kinda guy, just fell into it when I bought a reliable, cheap honda civic. It doesnt matter what I drive, I will always personalize it. Here are the pictures, the car is officialy for sale now....

    Very nice car and some awesome pictures. Shouldn't be hard to sell if you use those in your sale adds.


    On a side note...it sucks to have that white EZ-Pass tag on the windshield. Its not like my Taco is show quality or anything but I do hate it. On your Civic...it really stands out when looking at the front of the car.

    I've considered painting mine black but it may damage the signal and I'll probably have to pay for damages.

    wow, those photos are amazing. I know the feeling, I got rid of my '95 Civic and my '06 Scion TC so I could afford my Taco. Feels good to drive a mans vehicle though, no more silly dodge Neons revving @ me at the stop lights lol.

    thanks for the compliments guys. i know i'm gonna miss it, but its time to move on.

    as for the rolling shots, he fabricated a special rig that makes those shots pretty simple. its basicaly 4 galvanized pieces of pipe that thread together, with a couple of steel cables and tensioners fastened to it for stability. he then uses 2 suction cups with clamps attached to them to basicaly fasten one end of the rig to the car. you then hang the camera from the opposite end, put the car in drive, pull the e-brake, then slowly let off the e-brake so you roll about 1 mph with the wheel cut. he then slowly walks with the camera and takes about 7 or 8 pictures. then overlaps them and removes the rig from the image in photoshop. the end result is the illusion of the camera taking a picture while hovering next to a car in motion.

    this guy is a self taught photography geneous, and has even more skill with photoshop! he uses a lot of high dollar equipment, including a Nikon D300, several flashes with tripods, shades, etc. he makes the images really come to life when he gets home and starts editing them in photoshop. he also spent about 6 hours taking photos of my car in 3 different locations.

    if you look at the bottom right of each picture it has his website address listed. yall should take a look. he does a lot more than automotive photography, its just one of his main interests.

    here is a pic of the rig i told yall about that i took with my phone...
