not only work for a prize but do so without compensation that is where the line is drawn. Shame on Crispin...

Eco-Friendly Hybrid Design

Not sure if I like the modern house better than the car design.... there are hints in the design language that offer a nod back to the original IS300 especially when you look at the tail end
