During my weekly Saturday shopping I spotted a Eunos Roadster parked in a busy shopping street. Naturally I stopped and checked it out!
The Eunos Roadster is a rarity on the European continental soil as it is right hand drive and we had more than enough of the “normal” Mazda MX5 supply.
I decided try something different and make a down on the street video of the Eunos Roadster this time: Continue reading
It has been a bit quit here lately, but I’m back from my vacation to Hungary! Like every year I make photos of all interesting (Japanese) cars I see and like every year I also visited my parents in law. Opposite of their apartment someone owns the illest Honda Civic EF that I covered two years ago and this year there was some progress on the Civic:
Sorry for the grainy photos, but when we visited them it was already past 9 in the evening which means in an Hungarian summer it will be dark. So I had to keep my hand steady and shoot the photos because this was the only time I could take them and there was no other chance…
Anyway, the Honda Civic EF has been fitted with some really fancy rims that look like Enkei mesh rims: Continue reading
Lately the Toyota Starlet EP71 is making its comeback to the streets fast! Gone are all the wellfare moms who drove the Starlet P7 for years without maintenance. Gone are all the grandpas and grandmas who drove the Starlet P7 and wrote down every liter of fuel consumed in a small booklet. Gone are all the 18 year old new driver girls who drove the Starlet P7 because it was the only affordable car.
Welcome to all enthusiasts that want to buy a (almost) classic car with go-kart experience on a shoestring budget! And I see more and more of them lately.
Yes, if you would like to buy an affordable classic this is definitely the car to buy. You can mod it without major cost involved as shock and spring upgrades, tires, aftermarket exhaust and engine upgrades are cheap for this car: Continue reading
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: Continue reading
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.
Earlier this week it snowed in the Netherlands and since everything got covered in a thin layer of snow I’d thought it would be nice to take a short hike over the moors nearby. So I drove to the outskirts of my hometown and while finding a suitable parking space I ran into this blue 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX GDA:
The owner must be proud of it as it is in stunning condition!
It is the pre-facelifted version of the car with an headlight conversion: Continue reading
