The Bad Panda Scion FR-S


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.
