Daryl’s Ridox Supra

It is amazing the variety of vehicles that have graced the streets of the small Northern community of Cold Lake, Alberta over the years. At one time, there were actually 2 Ridox kitted Toyotas in town that shared some common bonds. Both had NextMod ties from the tuning shop in Ontario and also the Work Meisters on this red Supra had once been on the flagship black Supra that was featured in Superstreet magazine.

Here our story begins with the random sightings of a widebody Supra in town. As most know, it is hard to keep vehicles secret in this small community and soon it was found that Daryl was the proud owner of this JDM single turbo Toyota Supra. Apparently, since being transferred to Cold Lake as a Pilot from the Singapore Military, Daryl had a list of vehicles he wanted to try out while in Canada.  While we take for granted the multitude of cars we can own, in Singapore there are some cars that are not as tangible due to rarity and price.  Two said vehicles are the NSX and the Supra.  With that said, once the secret was out, Daryl and I met up for an afternoon photoshoot on a back country road. IMG_6385-Edittr

Originally, I brought out my Lexus to drive around in for the photo session but Daryl quickly convinced me to pick up my NSX so we could make a statement on our way out of town. Upon reaching our destination, the lighting was great for some interior shots. Inside the cabin, Bride seats as well as a Nardi steering wheel helped make the interior pop. A carbon fibre trim kit had been installed to keep with the non OEM theme and on the exterior there were custom taillights installed alongside the large TRD wing that Supras are known for.

This Supra is equipped with massive Work Meister S1 3 piece wheels. Measuring 19×10 +17 up front and a wide 19×12 +22 in the rear.

Since I brought my NSX out it seemed fitting to grab some shots with these 2 Japanese legends. Acura vs. Toyota. Take your pick as to which one you would like to have in your garage. I have never been a boost addict so my slow NA NSX was quick enough for me. Although from time to time I do miss my old 91 MR2. Maybe a feature on that in the future… Onto more of the photos.

The sun started to set, so the session was coming to an end, but not before capturing an amazing silhouette shot that truly captures the timeless lines of this Japanese legend. Unfortunately, with a growing family(priorities I guess haha) Daryl has had to move to a 4 door vehicle and this Supra now has a new home somewhere in Saskatchewan, where the new owner can enjoy the open road.  Not all is lost though, as there are 4 door vehicles that come equipped with 2JZ motors that we may see Daryl driving  on the streets of Cold Lake when the family life settles in. May we say VIP platform possibly?  Until next time.
