Wallpaper @ work

December 15, 2007 in wallpaper by banpei

This is my current wallpaper at work:
Wallpaper @ work
Twin drifting AA63 Carina 4 door sedan, AA63 Carina 2 door coupe and T142 Corona 2 door coupe. I wouldn’t call it twin anymore, but tripple drifting sounds so weird.

Not much of a blog item, but always nice to have this one around for myself. ;)

You can find the original size here:

Will the Carina be bling?

December 15, 2007 in bling by banpei

I just found this AA63 Carina for sale:
AA63 Carina with bling headlights

These are the same headlight surrounds as I got for mine, so I’d expect my car to become as bling as this one when I install them…

However I hoped it would look a bit more like this one:
AA63 Carina non bling headlights

Apparently the amount of bling headlights is limited in contrary of the ordinary whitelines (black with a white stripe). So, perhaps the black rattlecan will have to do it’s job properly… Anyone else got a better idea?

Google translations: finish your relationship!

December 15, 2007 in Google translations by banpei

I was viewing this awesome auction on Auctions Yahoo Japan and tried to find out what it all said…

Toyota AA63 Carina on auctions.yahoo.co.jp

Apparently the car has only driven 44184 km, that’s even less than mine!! It has power windows, central locking, aircon, etc… All the things my car lacks. Apart from that the car appears to be in awesome state.

Toyota AA63 Carina on auctions.yahoo.co.jp

Anyway, the google translation isn’t that good. If I wouldn’t know better I would definetly not buy the car (well, I wouldn’t be able to because I don’t have the funds to get the car here anyway):


The body itself is a rust, but most of the trunk is a little rust, has been floating. ????????????? In places, and also to be included. ??????????? Now check the car are very welcome.

Not particulary very comforting words. :P


Repair calendar, but the car guy to look at me at probably no repair and that is, is known exactly, do not know, please.

So it is known exactly, however on the other hand not…

And the questions asked to the seller are even better!

Zabrze! Ruda ?l?ska!

December 6, 2007 in Zabrza by banpei

Just returned from a businesstrip to Poland last friday.

I did expect it to be cold there, but apparently weather changed and it was actually quite warm and foggy. That also meant that all coal-exhausts were still close to the ground which isn’t so nice if you’re not used to it at all.

We went to our Polish company HQ in Ruda ?l?ska which is a very modernized ex-iron works building from somewhere between art-deco and art-nouveau. Very nice! :)

We stayed first night in Zabrze (pronounced as if you’re drunk, but don’t tell the Zabrzaians!) in a standardized Ibis hotel and the second night in the hotel Cracovia in Krakow which is an ex-communistic hotel.

Hotel Cracovia looks like General Wojciech Jaruzelski sat around the table with Honnecker and Husák every weekend. It has wide and long corridors, old thick carpet and rooms as big as twice my living room. ;)
