This month, Clint and Carter both get some fan mail... Sort of. While Clint's art-directing skills (whatever that means) land him a secret admirer from the exotic land of Gladstone, MI, Carter is watching his back for scorned SoCal Tercel owners who may try to gaffle one of his dozen-or-so motionless rides in retaliation for punking them in print. Ah, the dramas of the editorial world...
I need help finding performance parts for my Geo Storm. I know what you guys are thinking... ya its a Geo, but this is my first performance car and I've done a lot to it. The body is a '91 but I recently swapped in a '93 engine... and now I can't seem to find cool performance parts for it. I was wondering if you could help me. I have been reading your mag for six months and I really like it! Keep up the good work!! All the other Geos I see around here are gay, but mine is better then the others. Please!

You're right, John. We are thinking, "Yeah, it's a Geo."
You guys are pretty funny, especially Carter. Singling out the Toyota Tercel when he owns a Supra with no engine. Hey Carter, you do realize that a running Tercel is faster than your mouth or a Supra with no engine, right? But seriously, I know where you guys are coming from. Thanks for keeping 2NR real! Carter you're a comedic genius.

I would totally take a Supra-any Supra-with no motor over a running Tercel, no matter how God-awfully fast it may be. In fact, I would take a Supra, non-JGTC even, stripped to its bare-nekkid shell, smelling like dog pee, over the Tercel. Why? Because the Tercel is the Coldplay of the automotive world.
Ever since I saw the "Remembrance" Infinity G35 in your magazine (Aug '07), I've loved it! I attempted to replicate this car in the Forza Motorsport 2, using the paint editor. Below is a link to the final product.
As you can see, I wasn't able to do the exact replica, simply because the game only allows 1000 layers on the sides of the cars... and each letter counted as a layer itself. I Hope you enjoy this car as much as I enjoy the real thing, and I'd be honored if you would forward this letter to Sgt. Nick Ashby, along with my gratitude for creating such a tribute.

From Sgt. Nick Ashby:
I am honored that you took such time to immortalize the Fallen Heroes G35 so accurately. Seeing the car in your renderings for the game brings back the same feelings as when we put the paint to its body. Despite staying busy with new cars, TV shows and national tours, I never pass up the chance to get Fallen Heroes out to a military base. It's now on its third year of National tours, and still growing in popularity. We never dreamed the impact it's had with soldiers and their families fighting for freedom all over the world would be so lasting. Thanks so much for your letter.
Easily our most decorated letter since I've started working here. Pinned on my office (um, cubical) wall, it inspires me everyday. From your huge color palette and five differnt forms of handwriting, to impeccable drawing skill, I'm thinking I should watch my ass around here if I want to keep my job! Now, if we could only understand what your letter means...
