I thought this was a fun short video. It’s a video of Alexi Smith from Noriyaro.com going to a 1JZ meet at Fuji. If you aren’t following him on his blog I highly suggest it. A lot of great content. I really love his car. Something about big 4 doors with a ton of horsepower and a drift theme that go so well together. I would love to find a local in Japanese and have him take me to all the great places of Japan. Ah, some day.
Man, I love these custom classics! I can honestly say this is the first woody wagon I can say I wouldn’t mind owning. Great lines and a set of modern oversized wire wheels. I have to ask, how much different are wood panels then the metal panels we are used to. Must be really interesting to drive.
I don’t understand why I find ugly things like this so attractive. It’s an old Mazda truck with a wooden bed, but yet, with its lowered suspension and wide wheels I’m in love with it. I would love to have a “work” truck like this with some type of turbo motor swap in it. Something just to carry around a ruckus, fixie, and engine swap here and there. With some investigation I found out this Mazda is powered by a SR20. So HOT!
I sure it would take me a couple seconds to find out what this car is, but I am interested in the knowledge base of my followers. So, can anyone name this car? First thing that comes to my head is NSU, but I’m probably completely wrong. It looks great with very classic lines. Great restoration from the looks of it, and the chrome/gold plated BBS RS’ certainly help with the overall look.
I have been lucky enough to be seeing a couple of these newer TL’s modded. They look REALLY good, I have to say. Can’t wait to start seeing some serious stanced out TL’s. Below is a great example of it’s potential.
I posted up a teaser post about a week ago with this car and it’s new setup. We’ll pictures have finally surfaced so I had to share them with you guys. The car came our great, but I can’t say I like the front bumper on the first picture. Hopefully he switches back to the OEM turbo piece. Regardless, GREAT looking wrap and the wheels a the sickest I’ve seen in a while! I have to say, I’ve always wanted to daily a non-turbo Porsche. With the great pricing of this generation, I might seriously look into one in the near future.
This second picture really brings out everything great about this car. Not to mention the stance!!
As you guys continue to see, I really have no filter on what kind of car I enjoy. As long as it keeps clean OEM lines and is tastefully modded it’s ok in my book (most of the time). Here is another example, a early 70’s era Mercedes Benz, either 280 or 300. I saw my first modified 280 at H2o a couple years ago and loved it. This one really stood out to me because all of the chrome trim has been blacked out. A GREAT touch. Something I love are the wheels. If you notice the centers were made to look exactly like the one’s that came off the car from the factory. Add a custom lip and as you can see it looks amazing on the car. What really puts the car over the top is the suicide doors.
Let me start off by saying I was never a big fan of the Sonata. It just seemed like a over styled trendy looking car. But it is slowly growing on me. The example below really shows that BBS LM’s look great with literally any car. I have to say with a drop and the lip kit the car looks really good. Take a second to notice the flaired fenders. The tinted head/tail lights are a great touch as well. Looks like a decent amount of work wen’t into this car looking as good as it does. Great execution.
So I haven’t posted in a couple days, but I have been busy on many different blogs and sites finding some great content for my blog. I have always liked the A5 and I am really surprised that nobody has bagged one here in the states, especially after seeing it’s potential across the pond. Here’s an example in a beautiful brown, and is sitting on what seem to be 20’s. I love it. The convertible has some great lines. Someone please bag one already!! If I’m not mistaken it has the A4 chassis so it shouldn’t be too hard to find bags that fit.
