June 18, 2015 in down on the street
This morning I was driving from my son’s school to work and took a wrong turn as people were digging up in one of the streets. That happened to be a lucky break as I passed this great looking blue Honda Civic Mk1:
The little car looked awesome, especially in the early morning light.
The tenth owner must really love its little Honda as the car got treated on a bucket seat (with beads!) for the driver: Read the rest of this entry →

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.
