So I picked this up just last week. I definitely have plans for it, a lot of which involve mooneyes.

Okay maybe that was a dorky title but for real, this meet was pretty cool. Despite the fact that all the cars looked pretty much the same (lot's of Mk4's) and the fact that it was absolutely freezing outside we had a good time. Our buddy Dalton (a feature to look forward to) drove down with his 1147whp Supra and there were several other notable rides there too. One man came by with both of his MK4 Supra's and one of his two Nissan GTR's... yes you read that right. Another noteworthy vehicle in attendance was a 1979 Toyota Corona wagon sporting a 1jz swap in beautiful condition. We saw several turbo's which could eat a baby. And a quite impressive BMW M3 with a 2jz swap (which people in the know would recognize is out of a Supra so the Bimmer fit in quite well). Another 2jz swap was seen inside of the burgundy Lexus (seen below) owned by another friend, Zeb. The variety of cars in attendance certainly kept things interesting, you never know what's going to show up at a Supra meet.

Our good friend Sid shot this sick MKV Rabbit before the most recent ISO meet. He was also nice enough to conduct a very thorough interview and let us get our hands on it. ENJOY!
My name is Jayson Pearce, I'm 25 years old and I am employed by the United States Air Force at Shaw AFB, SC. I like long walks on the beach, quiet nights in and.....wait....too much?
How long have you owned this car?
I bought this car in October of 2006 (it is a 2007 model)
Is there a unique story about behind your car?
After I bought the car in October, It sat from July 2007 until December 2009 and then seven MORE months out of this year. But whenever I come back I always have new parts/wheels to put on to make it up to her.
Did you consider a different car instead of this one?When I was looking around, the only other car I was considering was a Honda Fit. That was until I decided to check out my local VW dealer.....
What was your original objective with your car and has that objective changed?
I thought I owned a race car. H&R cup kit, huge sway bars, I was Mario Andretti in a 5 cylinder, automatic Rabbit haha.
What style would you say best describes your car?
I would say my car doesn't really fit into a category. I mean, It's kinda euro simply because of the car, suspension and wheels, but then you have the hardwood flooring, Bride racing seats and Nardi steering wheel. It's just my style I suppose.
Who assisted in the planning/building/modding of your car?
Brandon Baden helped me out a lot when it came to building/modding of the car, but the planning stages were all mine and consisted of: "you know what would be awesome?"
Who or what inspired the direction you took with the styling and modifications of your car?
Jake@WFSU got me started with my first set of wheels, after that it was just a stream of my conscience.
If money were no object, what would you do to your car?
Built 5 cylinder, big turbo, manual tranny swap with straight cut gears. That's it.
If your car had a motto, what would it be?
All it takes is time and a case of beer.
If you had to name your car, what would his/her name be?
Her name is Jessica.

Yet again another great show put on by the ISO crew. This last meet was held in conjunction with Streetwise Drift, which made for a pretty cool day. Between the sound of 2jz's revving and screeching tires it was almost impossible not to smile the whole day. We are most certainly looking forward to the next ISO event.
