    Castro Motorsport makes it into GQ Magazine!

    So we've been dealing with Frank Ocean for about a year and a half now, after he purchased an E30 from out of state that had a number of issues. After addressing the issues with the car he purchased, we decided it was better to start with a new platform for the project he wanted. As a result we planned a ground-up rebuild of an E30, which we've slowly been building over the past year. Anyway, the car will finally be finished within the next 2 months, and we will post plenty of pics and details on the build.

    Spec list of the car:

    S54 + 6 speed swap
    RMS Stage 2 supercharger set-up with Miller Performance tuning
    Real 4 door M-tech 2 kit
    Right hand drive conversion per Frank's request
    E30 M3 5-lug
    Staggered 17" Alpinas,
    Custom metal flares front and rear
    Fresh Lexus Moon-stone paint
    Custom re-upholstered interior
    Custom sound system
    etc.










    About a month ago Frank gave us a call, and asked if he could borrow a few cars, and some time at the shop to do a photoshoot with GQ magazine. Well, needless to say, we were more then willing to take on this opportunity! Our cars and the shop made it into 3 of the 4 photos in this month's GQ article on Frank named "Ocean-ography." Here is the link to the article:

    Good stuff. What'd he end up doing with that "out of state" m-tech II sedan? Can't wait to hear about the new build.

                      God dammit, he's rich!!!
                      Isn't the original one the one he got from vlad? And right hand drive is just weird. More power to him, I'm going to go work on holding a tune!

                      Edit: You shouldv'e have talked him into doing this to an m3
                      I want a nice set of smoked MHW's (I know, get it line)
