Didn't want to spend a huge amount changing it up, just in case if I wanted to go back to the old style; but here it is. ;P

Wasn't too happy with how my last look was so I decided to clean her up a bit.

Annis Elegy. The words can make any JDM enthusiast turn their head and ask "how much?" While the Elegy name isn't only attached to those early 90s JDM wetdreams - it goes back a long, long time - those cars, especially the RH-8s, are probably the most remembered. Whether it be the looks, the nostalgia, the sound, or just that wretched sense of Japan getting something America didn't, car culture has lusted over the Elegy for long enough. Now, the Elegy is free to roam the streets of the United States, free to spite safety regulations, and free to destroy the competition in any illegal, testosterone-fueled street race it finds itself in.

 

This one dropped into the ownership of a... business associate of mine a few months back. He's in the used car industry, but most of his buyers are more into classic Euro and U.S., so he asked if I knew anybody who would want it. The thing's previous owner had taken to turning it into a street racer, had slapped some knock-off badges in the style of Annis' tuning division around the car. Hadn't gotten too far before it wound up in my friend's hands. I previously helped... another associate with restoring an older Elegy, which happened to have a very similar paint scheme. I figured, heck, it's enough of a coincidence, and it's not like these things just fall out of the sky. Got a nice discount, too.

 

So, here it is. A (slightly molested) 1995 Annis Elegy RH-8. Not a perfect example, but that's never bothered me. It's won me over.

At this point in time, someone at R* would consider removing this car from the game, considering that it has been abused so much with game bugs and such. With that said, I love this vehicle for this reason.

Here is my homage to the legendary midnight club, so fast, the cops won't even bother. Also a good luck charm so we get more more midnight club in the next DLC.5CBr0vF.jpgpDi1LYD.jpgLREPK2l.jpgxN37DuU.jpg

This car is beautiful, pure art on wheels and one of my favorites in this game. I'll get one when the money is available, so for now I just want to know: How's this cars' performance? Specially compared to the RH8, I know it loses some top speed but how's the handling after the conversion?

The RH8 and Retro are pretty similar all around, only the difference is, the handling is better with the downside it's slower. Which makes sense being a predecessor. I feel it handles better than the RH8, but that's just me.

It does handle better due to its body shape being lighter but its top speed isn't as good as the RH8, which makes sense.

Alright, the handling must be really good since I think that the RH8's handling is very nice already. I'll keep my old RH8 and get a new one to convert, since the performance upgrades aren't carried over as far as I know.

 

I have a Pariah for racing so for now my real doubt is between getting this or the Comet Retro Custom first since it's also based on one of my favorite cars. Not to mention a dozen other strong options too.

 

Or maybe I should just focus on getting that Hangar Workshop already instead of more cars. So many things yet so little money!

That's good news, I thought it didn't. The only Benny's cars I have for now are the Sultan RS and the Slamvan Custom, but I had converted both right after getting my hands on them.

Took this quick picture right after completing an I/E sale. I was thinking about the kinda wasted potential that is this great machine, the Pariah is so overpowered on most stunt tracks that isn't even funny for me anymore and every race I do now has at least 3 of them not including mine. I'll probably end up using it anyway, I wouldn't care losing in my favorite sports car.

It retained the old color scheme of my old Elegy RH8. I kept also the same wheels and put the most similar spoiler too.

The Elegy is a important car for me and my online character. It was her first racing car, and brought her way more victories on last gen than I can remember. It taught me, and by effect her too, how to handle cars in this game. It has a special spot in my online garage. I've put the "Battle Damaged" livery, since I liked the "hardened veteran" vibe it brought, which I found appropriate given this car's age and heavy history of racing before it was converted. The only car on my garage that saw more action in races than this is my Zentorno, which is also a favorite of mine and an awesome machine.

 

Wish I had more pictures to post here, actually xD For now that's all I have
