November 25, 2011 in wangan warriors
Not only hard tuned cars were present on the Wangan Warriors meeting, but also a lot of oldskool cars from the 80s and early 90s.
I already posted the decals of this original Suzuki Swift GTi before, but here it is in full glory:
Also this original Skyline GT-R R32 can nowadays almost be considered as a classic:
Even though this particular GT-R is one of the last that hit the road in 1994 its lines are still very late 80s/early 90s!
A side note to this: this GT-R was only one of the few real Skyline GT-Rs on the meeting: most of them were the RB25DET variants with GT-R looks. Nowadays the prices of Skylines plummeted and you can buy a genuine BNR32 for around 6000 euros and a ER33 from 4000 euros onwards.
Do you notice the guy covered with a blanket in there? He was suffering from a hangover and wanted to get a nap. So when I took a picture things got a bit hilarious:
The owner said since he was sitting in a Skyline he was doing nasty things under the blanket, so two of his buddies joined him…
I spoke to the owner and this Daihatsu Charade GT-Ti Twin Cam 12 valve EFI turbo (that’s what it said on the side) is actually originally Dutch including the engine!
The owner bolted a larger turbo on it and now the engine outputs 150hp! Very impressive for a one liter 3 cylinder engine!
This Silvia Turbo was unfortunately the only S12 on the meeting:
It still features the stock CA18ET with a larger turbo (toerbo!) and is currently used as a drift missile. The owner was a nice guy and told me it was going to be SR20-ed soon.
Another early 80s car was this unfamiliar hachi:
With unfamiliar I actually mean it was unfamiliar for me. I did know about its existence because the owner lurks around on AEU86 but I never saw any pictures of it. It had a long history before the current owner bought it: it was originally sold in Germany, then in the early 90s imported to the Netherlands, then imported to Belgium and this summer it returned to the Netherlands again (hence the early 90s plates).
Last but not least, my very own Carina:
I have to borrow this picture from DarkSupra of JDM Society since I didn’t even bother to take a photograph of my own car!
One one more feature to go, so hang on for the surprise tomorrow!
