March 8, 2017 in down on the street, Initial D
In this video we have an Initial D sticker applied to a Ford Ka. Would this make it an Initial Ka?
Sunday is always a special day. That’s the day when you go out, take a long hike in the woods and eventually end up where most people go to after a long day out: a small local restaurant. Last Sunday I ended up doing exactly what I just described.
In the parking lot of the restaurant a small sticker drew my attention: an Initial D sticker! The sticker looked old and worn, but unmistakably it was an Initial D sticker! What was worse: it had been attached on the bootlid of a Ford Ka, delivering at least an additional 10 horses!

September 8, 2016 in dots
I found this shabby Infiniti G20 parked next to my hotel in San Mateo, California.
Its paint has eroded by the Californian sun and the interior looked quite worn. Not only was the paint peeling off, someone did a very dodgy job covering this up by adding a black layer of matte paint. Basically converting it to a two-tone scheme. The G20 was covered in pine needles, indicating that it has been standing there for some time. Well, at least after September 2015 according to Google Streetview. Read the rest of this entry →

Welcome to another Down on the Street video!
Mazda MX5 NB
Today’s car spot is a Mazda MX5 NB with a very interesting body kit. I found it parked on the market square in my home town in front of the cinema. From a far distance I spotted the little MX5 and the closer I got the more interesting it became. I noticed the twin exhaust pipes and the wide flared fenders and decided it was definitely worth making a video of this car.
I.L. Motorsport bodykit
It took me a while to find the manufacturer of the bodykit and I only managed to find this picture of it. The bodykit has been developed by I.L. Motorsport in Germany somewhere in 2003 and thirteen years later there is nothing more I can find out about it.
Sex Spec Styling
The styling of the bodykit has aged a bit and it leans against what Marty and Moog from Mighty Car Mods call sex spec styling. Read the rest of this entry →

Mazda MX5 NB Super Bird
The Mazda MX5 NB is the second generation of the Mazda MX5. Just like the NA it is small, lightweight and nimble and it is just an awesome car! Someone has made this NB just a little bit more awesome…
At first I thought this was another one of those stickerbombed Mazda MX5s but as I got closer I noticed there was a whole different painting on the fender. I have no idea what it is supposed to be but it looks like someone painted a lot of birds on it.
