I’ve expressed many times how much I would love to take a Toyota or Nissan pickup, throw a SR or RB into it and turn it into a drift monster. I think it would be a dope idea. I came across a pretty random picture of a older toyota pickup with some cool fitment. Bonus points for being so clean!
This would make for such a dope work truck.
I have always had a huge love for vintage european and japanese cars. To be honest I just haven’t had the funding the build one, but times are changing and I am currently building a ’75 Volkswagen Rabbit and plan on my next project to be a vintage japanese car. There is just something about them that encompass so much character and soul. It’s a beautiful thing. I came across this picture and fell in love with it. These are two cars I would LOVE to own. Even better, that they are racing, like they should. I would love to bring something like this to the states. One step at a time.
Ah man, the season is coming fast! Yesterday I wen’t to another meeting at the Unique Auto headquarters to go over this year’s Fresh Meet and all of the events we are thinking of attending. I am getting better at bringing my camera every where so I snapped a few picture of some of the projects and daily’s of some member’s.
First off is Tito’s beautiful A4 lowered on R8 V10 reps. Noticed the roof wing moved to the trunk lid. “Dope”
This is Ray’s newest project. A very clean Ek hatch currently sitting on Type R wheels. A crap load planned for this car. As you can see no one will ever steal this car, with the thousand security devices he as on it lol.
A set of BBS RS’ waiting for a re-finish.
Rebote’s gorgeous Evo 9 with a ton of mods including CCW’s, cabon fibers bits, motor mods and a full cage. So dope.
As you can see its pretty damn wide.
Money Mike, who as am still mad at for selling the ONLY Volkswagen Polo breadvan in the country, recently bought this Canadian Acura EL. As you can see, there is still a good amount of work that needs to be done to it. But it’s very clean.
And a happy birthday to Mike and Eddy! Apparently they are both eight and it was made clear with the Elmo mug Mike is holding. HAHA
We’ll that’s all I got for today. Unique Auto, SNTRL, and True Driving have A LOT planned for this year. Stay tuned!
Until next time…
Well the spring is quickly coming upon us and that means most of us need to stop slacking and get our projects done. The winter is always a frustrating time of finding parts, fitting parts, and everything else that comes in between. But it is also a time to see cars come together, huge builds being completed, and the outrageous coming to life. I personally love this time, seeing all the crazy things people are trying to do with cars. I came across this very interesting build picture of a Mercedes limo, on air, and what looks like Work CR wheels. So freakin dope! I really hope to see this thing done soon.
So I’m sure most of you has seen some type of coverage of Wekfest. I have to say, I was surprise on the amount of people who attended. I mean take a look at stickydiljoe’s coverage and you’ll see what I’m talking about. The show definitely deserves the recognition. The amount of quality cars in this show was really staggering. I was waiting for a video worth posting and I came across this one. I guess when you use a RED EPIC camera the film better come out good. I’ve always wanted to rent on for a show. Footage comes out pretty dope.
Now, I don’t know the guy personally, but I have a heck of a lot of respect for him. His prelude is easily one of my favorite Honda builds currently. I mean you can just tell the amount of work and attention to detail this man has put into this car. Every small piece has been touched and has been done right. No short cuts. It takes a whole lot of dedication to build a car of this caliber, and for that I give him a lot of props. It’s a beautiful thing.
This picture is from wekfest, and is his current setup. I have to say this is my favorite setup so far.
I really have mixed emotions about this Lamborghini. Firstly, it’s an amazing car, location, and the photo shoot came out ridiculously good. But I feel like the Lambo is over-modified. I’m not even saying that it looks bad, but I guess if had that type of money I wouldn’t be investing on a body kit and air suspension for a car that is perfect the way it came out of the factory. I’m all for the twin-turbo’s and wheels, but I don’t know, it almost seems to get a little too gaudy. Props to the builder and owner though. Don’t get me wrong I would rock it all day. HA!
Decided to go back to my roots today. Simple old school Volkswagen’s. There is just something about the beautiful, simple lines of the small bumper mk2. It says a lot when you don’t have to do much to make a car look really good. The example below is basically a stock mk2 with a drop and a rare set of BBS wheels and a clean body. That’s it. And I could honestly stare at it forever. Beautiful.
I’m happy that RWB came out with this video. Not only for the incredible footage, but for the question everyone had in the back of their head. RWB has become so incredibly popular over the past couple months some were afraid it would become too main stream. In some ways it has, but at the same time why would that be a bad thing? I mean we are never going to see a RWB Porsche in every town, heck we probably won’t see on in every state, but why is seeing more built such a bad thing? “Change” is good. Sure, some things aren’t worth it, but we should be embracing this builder who creates some of the most beautiful machines in the world. I say, more Rauh Welt!
Seriously, we haven’t had much of a winter so far. We are definitely not used to this warmer weather here in New York. But I do see around the world, there has been plenty of snow falling. Enough for some cool pictures. The picture below caught my eye because the snow is actually falling with a line-up of all white cars. Dope white cars actually. Obviously, only in Japan would there be a parking lot this dope. Guess you can say this picture is very “fitting”.
