Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Japanese rustoseums (part twentythree)

Part twenty three??? Yeah I kind of forgot to post this, so I skipped one a few weeks ago. 😉

This Nissan Silvia CPS311 project shows you that not all rustoseums end up as a piece of crumbled oxidized iron!

Amazing what they eventually did with the car. However I do wonder how much of that original CSP311 was used in the restored one!

SF Bay area: went to a drift event

I went to a drift event in the SF bay area last wednesday. I missed a grand meetup of hachis in Daly Vale on Monday, but Michael Kee told me there would be some more action on Infineon Raceway on Wednesday night: a drag/drift charity event for Japan. After the conference was over for the day I hopped into the car and made my route through 880, 580, 101, and 37 and arrived just in time when all the action was starting.

It was dark and freezing cold so I could not make any pictures with my phonecam, but I sure did shoot up three rolls of film! I’m positive there are some really nice pictures I can post up when they have been processed. So you will have to do with this nice hachi that stopped next to me after its driver didn’t make it to next round:

Apart from that there was a lot going on in the paddock. Inside the building I found a great looking Hellaflushed Roofracked and deepdished Honda Integra:

The car was an excellent example of this Californian style and I was very pleased to see it IRL. I also met the owner and gave him a Bosozoku Style sticker which he, hopefully, will put on the car next to all the other stickers…

His car was pretty stickerbombed where this sidewindow was still clear:

Apart from the modern cars there were also a few oldies. I’ll save them for next time!
