Remember this Honda Prelude mk5 I shared two months ago?
Back then I stated that it must be owned by someone who appreciates JDM.
Well I spotted it again this morning during my daily bike ride to work:
And it looks a bit different as the owner updated the Prelude to a new level!
As you can see a bit closer up the front fenders have been swapped for a set of vented FRP fenders: Read the rest of this entry →

On the very same day that I encountered the snowy Subaru Impreza WRX I also made photos of a snowy Mazda MX-5 NA:
This red Mazda MX-5 originates from November 1990 and was imported 14 years ago into the Netherlands.
As you can see a lot of things have changed on this MX-5 in the past 24 years:
First if all the double exhaust pipes look brilliant on it. I have no idea if they are functional or not but they don’t look fake or something.
Then there is also a boot rack (trunk rack for the US) mounted on the boot/trunk which should increase luggage capacity for long weekend trips.
The wheels are dished Rota RB rims (Minilite/Watanabe copies) but I’m unsure about the size as I did not make a clear picture of that.
Last but not least: the snowy Mazda MX-5 NA reminded me of the Miatas from Cars in this photo. I tried to add eyes and eyelids but I simply couldn’t post it here, so you will have to do the same by squinting your eyes and see for yourself.
Verdict: I really love to see this Miata every morning when I bring my son to school! It hardly ever moves but I hope the owner just suspended his/her daily commute in it during wintertime.

Yesterday was a great day for spotting Nissan Skylines: during the morning I tried to find a shortcut through my home town as I was in a hurry and BAM! I spotted this white Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec BNR33!
Later that day my wife phoned me while I was driving, so I pulled over and spoke to her on the phone. Whist doing that I heard this deep growl and before I knew what was happening a dark red Nissan Skyline R32 passed me! (followed by a lowered Honda Civic EK) In both occasions I did not have the time (or means) to take a photo…
I kind of gave up on the idea of taking a photo of the R32, but today I returned to where I spotted the white BNR33 and to my relief it was still there: Read the rest of this entry →
