It's that monthly time again for us to dedicate a few pages to our loyal readers. If you want to see your car here and possibly win some free parts, send some high-resolution photos of your ride to email@example.com. Make sure the pic is at least 1mb in size. Please do not use your camera phone. We don't care how much you like your iPhone, the photo will suck and will not look good in print. For snail mail users, send your letters to Super Street, c/o Readers' Rides, 831 S. Douglas St., El Segundo, CA 90245. Don't forget to tell us your full name, mailing address (no P.O. Box please), daytime phone, year and model of your car and highlights of your mod.
Ride Of The Month
Ride 1984 Toyota Corolla SR5
Location Auburn, WA
Mods Done Black top 20V 4AGE, BBP header, T3 velocity stacks, RS*R Magic exhaust, House of Kolor Deep Lilac Pearl Shimrin paint, molded CBY flares and AE92 side skirts, OEM JDM bumpers and Zenki lip, molded TRD spoiler, Konig Rewind wheels, TRD springs/Tokico shocks, TRD 2-way LSD, "Black Limited" steering wheel, Kouki Redline taillights
Mods That Should Have Been Done Clearly this Hachi has been through such a major transformation and we can't think of too many other mods you can do to top what you already have. We'd consider adding an old school touch, like TE-37Vs or if you're brave enough, some older SSR mesh. Luckily, you get to go new school with your TSW prize. Definitely hit us up when this car's completely done.

Mods That Should Have Been Done Simple and tasteful mods for a VIP build like this. We'd opt for window visors, but not the window curtains. If you change the wheels up in the future, try and get a super-flush fitment with a nice stretched tire. Too much? Nahhhh.

Mods That Should Have Been Done We like seeing blown B-series setups from time to time but now that the power looks dialed in, how about a color change?
