Design-wise, that RX-7 was always such a beautiful basic car design - it'd be great even today.... but there's just little things about it that make it scream '1990's Japan' - the cheesy pillar handle for the doors, the blacked out taillights, the pop-up headlights... the car was kinda meant to have a wing but both versions of the wing that came standard are cheese, and wings in general are ugh.

It'd have been great if they would've made another RX-7, rather than the 8. Epic fail.

haha. There are still a few 90's cars on the roads here but they look very dated. The days of the Japanese sports car are very over. I see guys in big-power R34's and stuff tooling down the street, but around where I live that's kind of like seeing a mullet in a 90's Camaro in like, Beverly Hills or something. Kinda weird. That said, seeing an actual vintage Camaro here is really cool and they look awesome in these surroundings, like a 68 or a 69 - I've seen like 4 now. They all stink of gasoline and make you feel like you're in the middle of a car manga or something when they blast by you.

On the duster front, definitely need to make one of these:

I hear that. It's different when they're domestic. The thought of 90's domestic cars here makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

Unfortunately that was the best picture of Mac's duster I could find :(. Apparently people are far lazier about taking screencaps of It's Always Sunny than I had assumed they would be.

really excited to see the rain/trench when it's ready. I've been keeping up hope ever since Drew said it was something he had a design for but not a fabric for months ago.

Yeah it's really an exciting development, I have a good number of things I want to make of this stuff and they span a real gamut of styles. I've been ready for this for a while now I guess. You can count on a trench, a mac coat, some technical looking rain gear, maybe some traditional outdoorsy looking gear, and maybe a couple requisite riffs on militaria.

Technical rain gear? Taped seams and waterproof zips? drool.gif

Maybe. Not sure if I will go overboard, since people tend not to go hiking in the fashunz, but it will repel rain. That's what it's supposed to do, so sounds good to me. redface.gif

The doorman at the JCrew in Philly told me I had a sick jacket, dunno if I should take this as a compliment.

I love the popups and the Mazdaspeed A-Spec Spoiler Type II. It's what completes the rx7. My dream has always been to replicate the early version of the FD from initial D. That's what got me to love the FD so much.
