Templar's Old school retro BRZ

Hey all !

I've had this car for almost a year now, i've mostly been posting on the Facebook FRS/BRZ Enthusiasts group but I just realized I never introduced myself here.

So, I came up with this idea because I grew up in the 80s and always had a soft spot for sports cars of that time, but of course I was too young to own one... today I am trying to pay homage of the sports cars of that era with my BRZ.

Thanks & regards !
Jonathan
