Here is where you get to shine. It's the easiest way to get in Super Street. Show us photos of your ride by emailing them to us at or mail them to Super Street, c/o Readers' Rides, 6420 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048. Be sure to send us JPEGs with at least 1500x1000 resolution at 180ppi (that should be small JPEG, medium quality settings on most digital cameras).

This month's winner, Alex Rivera, wins a Rev-Shift Timer from ARK Design (

We say you did a good job considering you built it while in the Army stationed in Iraq. Our only suggestion is to change up your body kit to something a little more JDM-looking. But if it works for you, then keep it
