Michael Kwan’s Toyota Supra MK3

Again – another photoshoot in the bag yesterday afternoon. A beautiful afternoon – might I add.

In 2011 when we went to DTP in Vancouver, I met Michael Kwan – at the time, he shot for illmotion in the BC area and it wasn’t until we got there for the show that I saw his car. Absolutely mint MK3 Toyota Supra – original paint and everything. His fitment at the time was just out of this world and up until today, it still retains the neck-breaking status that it had 2 years ago. Michael has done an absolutely awesome job at keeping his Supra in great condition and it’s not something that is easy to do. Especially when you have such an amazing car – most of us would just want to drive it.

After seeing his Instagram post last week of his Supra – I immediately commented asking to shoot it. And immediately, he responded and agreed. Fast forward to yesterday – JC and I met up with Michael and were on our way. I know I’ve said it before, but damn I love shooting coloured cars. Red, Blue, Indigo… They just pop so nicely when they’re clean and put together properly.

Michael has been putting the Supra together slowly over the years and he’s looking to add flared fenders to the rear to compliment his front carbon fenders – which by the way, look mean as f*** when he’s behind you.

Let’s get going…

JC and I messing up the place up. Got us on video too haha

Under the Crowchild overpass. It was tough to shoot at this location because it was all muddy and nasty everywhere still from the flood. Hard to believe it was all covered in water here just a few days ago…

Up close of his immaculate carbon front fenders.

And dat lip.

Another shot. Couldn’t get enough of the fenders. The weave was on point.

null

Shot of the underpass where it was flooded… People biking now.

And a shot of Michael’s Supra from where we were standing.

Posted up at Mercedes. lol

OK here come the rollers. I love rollers – and Michael was itching for rolling shots. So I took a bunch – I’ll just post them all up at once!

null

Coming down Bow Trail.

null

This one was my personal favourite – this was the one I posted on my Instagram yesterday. The green from the trees, the blue from the sky, the red of his car and the gold on the wheels. Such a beautiful combo!

null

A shot I took intentionally trying to get JC’s car in the photo. Check that lip.

null

Another great shot down the Bow Trail pass.

Last one. The sun was coming down hard all day – I’m so glad I got a polarizer lol. I have a few more shots that I’ll go through over the next few days and post them up…

Oh yeah… Happy Canada Day everyone!

    • I’m not sure – it would probably be best to Contact Michael and ask him. I overheard him say they were custom made by Shine. That’s about all I know.

  1. I am in Saskatchewan restoring one. I actually have two and am making them into one. Where did you get the carbon fibre front fenders!? Need to drop a little weight. As of now thing will probably be heavier when I am done that it was when I started.

    • Hello, i’m the owner of the vehicle. I purchased it from Shine. Its a company that makes kits and auto body parts out in the states. Not sure if they are making them anymore but I purchased these when they were just starting out as part of their prototyping phase. They may still be making them, but you will have to contact shine autobody to see.

    • Hey Tyler, I purchased the fenders from Shine autoboday. They’re a body kit manufacture / design company out in the states. I got these when they company was still new and looking for projects to prototype, so I got the first patch of 3 at the time. I think they are now “mass” producing them? so best bet is to contact Shine to see.

    • They are indeed a Shine product – a picture of Michael’s car can be found on their store for the fenders.

      His Supra is actually up for sale now (sadly) – a beyond ad has just been posted with more info if you want to contact him.
      Not sure if I’m allowed to post links so please have a search
