Meet Verossa

verossa4

I always wonder what Toyota was thinking when they designed the Verossa. Combining the Chasers sportiness besides the Crestas Luxury, Toyota landed somewhere in the middle with this. If you follow much of Toyotas designs over the years, most of the cars borrow a little here or there from each other and carry similar traits with grilles and headlights body lines and so on.

Creatures of the night

What started out as a bit of a Joke on the Internet the other day ended up luring us out on a freezing Friday night standing around in the dark with friends. We were almost excited at the fact this “Cruise” was going down.

“Cruises” have been a part of car culture for as long as I can remember, in all shapes and sizes they have always happened. Its a different kind of nightlife.

From the other side of the globe:

I love cars that literally appear out of nowhere. This KE70 appeared in some photos online one day and literally blew us away. At First I thought it was just another really well put together Corolla from the Internet, little did I know this was actually on Irish shores. I was pretty eager to take a closer look.

A brief encounter with Godzilla

Shoes are such a massive part of building a car, they can make or break a look. Finding the right shoes in a sea of similar builds can be such a daunting task. This Godzilla was already wearing a set of shoes which were almost impossible to replace, TE37’s finished in gold.

More Door Obsession

nighttool20

Ireland has gone crazy for the Japanese four-door sedan. A little over ten years ago many of these big six cylinder machines were unattainable to the Irish man. Back then, still fetching insane prices in Japan very few of these were snatched up in the boom years and any that made it here were something of legendary status.

Perfect five: The Gymkhana Evo

robsevors8

Japan has been good to us. This country has seen some great cars land here over the years. In almost every category we have imported some of the best. It amazes that after fiteen or more years of plucking the gold, time and time again amazing machines like this end up on the docks in Dublin.

Corner Character

passae865

Almost hidden in the corner of the Toyota gathering a few months back was this AE86. The owner was a little taken back by my interest in it. I tend to obsess over cars with a little character; cars we wish could only speak and share their tales, with faded team stickers, dents holes and scuffs.

Elusive Interchange

This little unassuming E90 corolla started its life as a rather mundane commute machine. Corollas from the eighties and the 90s were like Lego, literally so much stuff plugs and crosses over its fascinating.

Out of the Darkness : Japfest 2016 PT1

2016japfest28

Being away for a few years I really didn’t know what top expect at Japfest this year, if you were following the nonsense on the Instagram story, we went a little over board but it was with no regrets. Japfest an end of year calendar for most of the stuff we are into and most of the cars either come off of the road or go into hibernation for the winter.

Gratitude

Isn’t it nice to be able to stand back and admire an inanimate chunk of metal? It has always fascinated me how these pressed pieces of metal can evoke certain emotions in us.

This car… This car just like so many machines in the height of the good times somehow made its way onto our little green Island. Its something we discuss a lot here on Juicebox because it really is such a fascinating piece of Irish automotive History.

Juicebox BBQ: The Squeeze PT2

jcbxbbq-25

A lot of people made it down regardless of situations that sprang up which either on the day or close to it.  Somehow the weather was on our sides which enticed people to make the journey down. I genuinely would not have held the event if there was a monsoon of Irish rain.
