The Bad Panda Scion FR-S

WORDS FROM THE OWNER – IAN HART

The car was originally supposed to stay bone stock. That changed after my 91 Toyota MR2 was t-boned.

I didn’t know how I was going to compete in the SCCA autocross series. So I gave my car a shot in competition and that’s how it all started. Mods started off mild then got more and more serious. The panda theme was inspired by the manga and anima cartoon series called Initial-D. Main character Takumi Fujiwara drives and races a AE86 TOYOTA corolla better known as a Panda Trueno 86. I decided to make the same theme with a twist of my own. Since then it has gotten awards in various competitions between racing and shows.

Exterior:
  • Charge speed lip kit
  • Trd canards
  • Trd rain guards
  • GT86 NUR spec wing
  • Carbon Creations vented hood
  • HID headlight and fog lights
  • Katana K102A wheels 18×9 with General G-Max tired 255/40/18

CarBuzz FAIL – Pagani WIN

CarBuzz Released an Article called :

“FAIL: Stranded Pagani Dragged Off Beach By Used Honda”

Article was written in response to leaked footage and picture of Instagram users’ @Sparky18888 Pagani getting stuck on Gravel during a photoshoot by a lake. In the article on CarBuzz they describe this as a “moment of shame” and said the owner would be “presumably left with a permanent mental scar.”

When will online publications actually write content without taking jabs to car owners. To us over here at Uhh Dope we see this moment as a WIN. The whole purpose of having a car is to drive it and Enjoy it. Whether it’s a Honda CRV or a 1:1:1 Pagani, we all get cars to enjoy them. My hat is Off to @Sparky18888 and all the super car owners who take the extra step to get that cool shot, who go above and beyond to attend and participate in Rally’s, and who truly live the Super Car Lifestyle.
