I wanted to post something really different then the norm today. Looking through my iPhoto I came across this picture of a R1 that I absolutely loved. Firstly, I love the new R1’s as is it, but slammed on air with extensive mods is another story. Now, personally, I wouldn’t go this far with a motorcycle, but I’m sure it would be SICK to see this thing rolling down the highway, slammed to the floor. You have to love the murder black and deep red frame. I would rock this for days!
So I had thrown up a post before on this Celica from Japan with the most ridiculous camber and tire stretch ever seen by humanity. I’m sure most of you questioned the drivability of the ride. We’ll the video below is the proof. Take the serious side out of our community and give this guy props for trying something completely ridiculous. It’s isn’t something that could have just been thrown together. Sure it’s nothing any of us would do, but hey it’s fun to see someone try.
I really love these race inspired builds. Crazy high horsepower swaps, full cage, lightweight parts, meaty tires, and much more. This Corolla is a perfect example of that kind of build. If I remember correctly the motor is from a Volvo, which is pretty interesting. Or maybe it’s just a JZ swap, can’t remember. Either way this car is done RIGHT, down to the custom carbon fiber doors and trunk. You are looking at a crap load of perfect execution.
Anyone want to know why I am addicted to MotoGP? Why I think Rossi is the best to ever ride? Watch this video. I started getting into MotoGP, seriously, in ’08 and was blessed to see this race live. It gave me goose bumps as I watched it and it still gives me goose bumps now. Many people just don’t understand why these final two laps were the most exciting laps ever. The amount of skill to perform that the level that they did is staggering. I mean, they were both performing at 2000% for the last two laps. It’s just amazing. It’s breathtaking. And it’s why MotoGP will always be my favorite professional sport.
PS- You can also see why everyone was so upset when he left Yamaha for Ducati. He and that bike was one.
Sit up, and enjoy!
I’m really glad I found this video. It pretty such encompasses my deeper feelings about riding motorcycles. It’s a lifestyle, it’s a form of art, it’s a form of expression. For someone like myself, who is deep into fashion and style, this is exactly what I mean. My style continues to my and is expressed through motorcycle’s I would love to build. These guys are doing it right! As I have expressed before, I want to open up a shop, and motorcycle’s would be my niche. I feel like they are far less complex then cars to tear down and build better . I really can’t wait.
I have always had a big crush on this huge non-sense bro-doser trucks. Something about sitting ten feet in the air with huge tires with the ability to roll over a car if need be. Of course I see myself driving this all over Manhattan, rather then off-roading somewhere and getting dirty, although that does look fun. I don’t know, I just I’m just weird like that. I posted up a jeep a while back that fell in love with, and going through some old pictures I came across this one. It really looks like it’s setup for some serious off-roading, but damn would I love to rock this in the summer all over the city.
My jaw is still on the ground as I type this. I’ve seen pictures of this car here and there, but it’s another thing to watch it rolling around. SO BEAUTIFUL. If the owner of the car see’s this post, your car has single-handedly made me want a S14. I was never a huge fan of the styling, but consider my mind changed. The body kit and wheels are done to perfection. Damn I need a drift car in my life! I would love to see some specs.
Yea, it’s official, I am currently obsessed with a car. I have been searching for rare Japanese classic cars for a long time now, and with the many classic car shows in Japan it’s not very hard to find them. One car, along with many, that I have fell in love with is the 1st gen. Toyota Soarer. Of course, we never got it here in the states, but I want one so bad! It’s just classic 80’s styling. I came across a blog from a owner in Japan who has one done up the exact way I would. Ugh. Just a nice drop, flaired fenders, and classic SSR’s. So beautiful. I WILL own this car one day!
The Formula Drift season has begun, with it’s first stop in Long Beach. It’s an amazing setting and perfect spot for some crazy drift action. Just as amazing as the skill and high horsepower cars is this short video covering it. I mean this is one of the sickest drift event videos I’ve seen in a really long time. Perfect soundtrack and footage. Props.
