The End of An Era.....
Rest in Peace Julee....
You Will Be Missed -- Always
The real twist to this story is that not a SINGLE performance or aftermarket part was damaged in ANY way. Not a tinted window, not a haloed headlight, not even a scuff on the XXR wheels...so, my insurance company let me keep the car long enough to pull stuff off, so, at least a few bucks were recouped, but, wow, this will long live as one of my very sad days....
- Complete, barely driven Dezod S1 Turbo Kit, which includes:
* Garrett Turbo
* TiAL Wastegate
* HKS SSQ III BOV
* Deatschwerks 550 cc Injectors
* AEM F/IC Piggy Back Management with all tuning software
* Intercooler and all piping and seals
* All hoses, connectors, vac box, COMPLETE ready to install kit
- HKS multi-function Turbo Timer (0-60 times, speed, revs, etc)
- Prosport Boost Gauge
- Prosport Oil Pressure Gauge
- Autometer Dual Gauge Pillar Pod
- Hotchkis Sway Bars (Front and Rear)
- Tanabe front strut tower brace
- Ingalls Torque Damper
- Greddy rear strut tower brace
- XXR 18" 962's in Gold (have five wheels - had one as a spare)
My brother just put these on his 2002 Subie 2.5 RS -- NICE!
- APR GTC Wing with Gurney flap, EVO side plates
(custom spaced supports for perfect fit on the tC hatchback)
Added this sweet wing to the 2002 Lexus IS300 -- love it!
- too many to mention....
And, now, the sad tale....
April 1, 2011
T-Boned at an intersection by an idiot
I thought my insurance would repair it, but a crushed hinge pillar made it too expensive for them to want to dish out the bucks to fix it.....
So, they totalled her out....goodbye, sweet Julee.....
The rest of this site will remain as it was, as a tribute and record of how far I took her, from when I bought her stock, brand new, in 2007, to the turbo install and tuning which made her a road dominant little beast. After boost she was all wins, no losses, and what a tragedy to lose her this way...
But, life goes on....and a week later, April 8, 2011, a new legend took up residence in the garage. She will never be Julee, but she'll make a name of her own....
Yes, it's the other side of the Toyota family...
And not just any Lexus...
The legendary 2JZ-GE IS 300,
graced with the non-turbo Toyota Supra engine!
Stay tuned....be tuned...
And watch the new legend grow...
Thanks to ALL who supported the build of Julee,
and thanks Julee for over four sweet years of
great races, legendary memories,
and the most fun I've ever had owning a car....

I'm giving you a 5 star on the tc and sucks that its gone. please check out my scion xb and rate and please leave me some feedback...thanks
OMG bro, wow, what a tragedy. I'm so sorry about the loss of Julee, she was a legendary ride man, and what a mediocre end to such a legendary ride. But hey, looks like the fates may have smiled upon once again, or was that the first time they ever smiled upon you... Anyways man, the new IS looks very sweet, but I'm sure too that you miss your boost something fierce man. I want to boost my corolla now, but until I do, I still think you'll beet me, hahahaha! Peace
