Brilliant: longest car name on a Nissan Leopard GF31

November 18, 2014 in brilliant

Previously I thought the Nissan Cedric Y30 V3.0 Turbo Brougham VIP was supposed to be the longest name given to a car ever, but I stand corrected with this Nissan Leopard 870 Ultima GF31 3.0 V6 Twin Cam (intelligent adult coupe):
Brilliant: Nissan Leopard 870 Ultima
The Nissan Leopard GF31 is a typical mid 80s luxurious grand tourer and continuously improved with the latest and greatest technical gadgets like any Japanese car manufacturer did by the end of the 80s. Oh I love the 80s and Japanese cars from the bubble era!

The question is: what is an intelligent adult coupe?

Let’s make this happen: Initial D legos

Yesterday I received an email (sent to AEU86) from Denil Oh if we could run his Initial D legos box proposal on our forums. Of course we could, and even better: we’ll promote the heck out of it as it needs 10000 supporters to get it to reality and that sounds like it would be doable!

This legos box proposal is so brilliant, the car is a really simple yet stunning design: Read the rest of this entry →

Brilliant: Honda Museum in Google Streetview

October 17, 2013 in brilliant

A couple of days ago I read on Jalopnik that the Honda Museum in Kanazawa (Ishikawa Prefecture) in Japan is now available on Google Streetview. Of course you can’t read all the fine details on the exhibits but you surely can get a good impression of the museum and if I ever go to Japan I’ll certainly will visit the museum!

Next to the entrance this Honda RA271 formula one car welcomes you:

Next to it is a pristine S600 convertible.

Upstairs you will find even more formula one cars, like the world championship winning RA272: Read the rest of this entry →

Happy New Year with live and direct fireworks from the Netherlands!
Happy New Year!
Yes, that’s amateurs firing off professional fireworks and it is perfectly “legal” to blow off your hands on this very day. ;)

Anyway, let’s hope 2012 will only bring goodness to you!
