Keeping an eye to the future includes everything from new vehicles, new products, and even new enthusiasts. This past Wednesday, December 15th, Steve Millen and the STILLEN crew delivered a modified Nissan Altima to the Coastline ROP Automotive Technology class at Laguna Hills High School.
This car was one of the main display vehicles for Nissan when they released the new model Altima, and was also an R&D project and show car for STILLEN for many years. The car has been outfitted with a long list of performance modifications, suspension improvements, brake upgrades, aesthetic enhancements by way of a body kit and custom interior. The car is even sporting a 3 part paint job featuring Lamborghini Orange.

Earlier this month we said goodbye again to the STILLEN R35 GT-R after getting the call from Nissan that they would like to bring the GT-R back into Canada for the 2010 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.
Nissan arranged for transport, and placed the Targa GT-R in the center of their booth, giving attendees a chance to get inches away from the Orange Godzilla and get a peek for themselves. The show runs through February 21, 2010. [Pictures & Video after the jump]
Steve Millen and the marketing crew here at STILLEN took some time out and traveled to LA to spend some time with Adam Carolla, and be a part of his CarCast show.
Adam’s shop is very cool, with interesting things around every corner, and numerous projects in various states of completion.
STILLEN invites you to see and touch the new 2010 Nissan 370Z before anyone else, including the LA Auto Show, right here at the STILLEN facility in Costa Mesa!

Steve Millen and the STILLEN crew are very excited to once again be participating in the Dunlop Targa Rally held in New Zealand with the STILLEN Ford GT. This is an annual road rally held on 38 stages run over closed public roads, with a variety of vehicles, from classics to Porsche’s, EVO’s, STi’s, Skyline’s and everything in between.
The competition stages are public roads which have been closed by the police and driven flat out. The goal is simple, the car that covers the distance in the shortest time wins.
EDIT: Here’s some additional coverage, photos, and previous stories from our friends at Autoblog.com
Videos of the 2006 Targa Rally, including in-car are available at the STILLEN GT Project Vehicle page
