Tuner Bash After Dark (TBAD) busted a Full Monty on the Emerald City as the hottest whips in the Pacific Northwest converged on Seattle's Q-West Events Center on May, 7. A steady stream of spectators filed in the venue to eyeball Seattle's brightest custom imports, get pictures with import models and take in the vibe.

Seattle has had a good deal of import potential with all that Microsoft money and the right demographics. We saw that the Northwest now has the shops, the cars and the passion to realize its potential.

Ernest Palafox 1991 Toyota SupraAfter narrowing it down to two possibilities we went with the un-sponsored, enthusiast-built 7M-GTE Supra over a heavily sponsored, shop car. Ernest hit all the right buttons with his old-school Supra.

The JZA-70 sports a big turbo, custom intake manifold and the details needed to make power. We like the underhood mounted fuel pressure gauge; it illustrates a serious approach to the tuning portion of the build up.

Along with the $500 in prize money, Turbo will be doing a feature article on the car when the tuning is complete. Get to work Ernest!
