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.

Everything about this Nissan Sunny GTi-R is insane and I’m not only referring to the specifications of the car! I covered this GTI-R a few years ago with a couple of photos but back then I was ignorant of its importance. As I had to pass this car every other day I decided to collect some more footage this time:
On the Dutch licence registration page the information told me it had been registered officially as a Sunny 2.0 GTI-R van. Wait a minute: someone was able to register a Nissan Sunny GTI-R as a van in 1993?
Enjoy my homage to the Nissan Sunny GTI-R below that I created using the footage I collected during some five to six times passing by: Read the rest of this entry →

I spotted this Honda Civic EK with red painted rims on a Sunday in my hometown when there was a big happening in the center of town.
Perhaps the Civic is owned by a visitor, perhaps it is owned by someone actually living here but the fact is that I never saw it in town before.
I think the first thing I noticed were the red painted rims, only then I noticed it was a Civic EK. Read the rest of this entry →

I spotted this fourth generation Honda Prelude in the parking lot of my previous employer. The Prelude itself is the European 2.3i model with 4 wheel steering and is rapidly becoming a rarity.
Even though it looks stock there have been a couple of modifications on this car: the tail lights have been replaced by Lexus-look items and a tow hook has been added. I really wonder who thought a tow hook would look great on a car? Well, given the engine has 209Nm torque it should not be a big problem to haul a caravan with this car…
I did change the format of the Down on the Street video since last time a bit: Read the rest of this entry →
