WW Kick-off 2013: the arrival!

April 2, 2013 in event, wangan warriors

Enroute to the Wangan Warriors 2013 season kick-off I already encountered a group of sports cars (Skyline R32, Silvia S12 and a Subaru WRX) but when I came near to the meeting grounds the sports and performance cars were literally swarming from all directions!
Wangan Warriors: Arrival

This Nissan 200SX S13 was parked next to the entrance was remained glued to my retina for the remainder of the meeting:

So if this is his mum’s car…his car should be even messier? :P

The interior looks serious though… more pictures on the next page

Japanse Autosport Festival: the classics

May 4, 2012 in jaf2012

I think many of you have waited for this: the classics at the Japanse Autosport Festival!

The best classic on the terrain was this original Dutch 1977 Honda Civic SB parked in the parkinglot:

As you can see it is in perfect condition and I could not find a spec of rust on it. It also has been fitted with a set of periodically correct vintage alloys.

Japanese Autosport Festival: the bombs!

May 2, 2012 in jaf2012

There are lovers and haters of the stickerbomb style and I happen to be somewhere in between. If applied in a good fashion I like it a lot, if done in a wrong way I definitely hate it. Given this phenomenon popped up one and a half to two years ago I think we’re currently at the high of the trend, so there is hope for the haters. ;)

Anyway, here is a selection of cars I found on the Japanese Autosport Festival with stickerbombs!
Stickerbombed Mazda Miata
First of all the Miata of which I posted up a bombed flip up light before. All round this car was applied with various stickers, but the bombs were concentrated around the flip up lights. I love it this way: it is easily reversible and not overdone.

Speaking of flip up lights, this is a closeup of the other light: Read the rest of this entry →

Fuck the 86: this Starlet is better!

December 12, 2011 in video

Yesterday I posted up the Tercel AL11 I found on the street and Simon said it resembles the Starlet quite a lot. Yes it does, but it distinguishes itself with one thing, this is something the Tercel can’t do:

Apart from the Starlet I see about half of Toyota’s early 80s lineup: a lot of Levin and Trueno AE86 plus a Celica XX (called Celcia Supra outside Japan)

Picture of the week: Starlet KP62 face expression

September 29, 2011 in picture of the week

Sometimes the expression on someones face says more than the rest of the picture. That is certainly true for the driver of this Toyota Starlet KP62:

The expression on his face says so much more about the motion of the car than the rest of the photo! :P
