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.

A treat for the eyes.

Zeds last Dance

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.

Where to begin really? This whole thing started as an idea few weeks back, well a concrete idea that is. This plan literally fell into place in less than ten days.

The Toyota Gathering PT2

What I enjoy most about this event is how varied the selection is, not narrowed down to only drift enthusiasts or classic car its a perfect cocktail of car people right across the board and anything, literally anything can make an appearance. Check this KP pickup for example, something I have never seen before. A crazy idea!

The Toyota Gathering PT1

toyota-gathering-2016-50

It absolutely astounds me just how much of a following there is for Toyota here in Ireland, go anywhere, literally anywhere, in a city or especially in the country side and smaller town and the Toyota has ruled the roads for over 30 years. What better way to greater awareness for Suicide in Ireland amongst car enthusiasts than with an event like this. Held this year in the Cork marts in Fermoy the show really dragged some gems out of the woodwork.

DYING BREED : THE FF LEVIN

ae111-black-beauty-5

I honestly feel bad for the AE111 Levin, it had a lot to live up to following the AE86 legacy along with its two older bothers the 101 and the 92. None of them were rear wheel drive but all possessed fresher better engineered hearts than the original Eighty Six.

Make Art – The RYO AE86

It’s no secret that we here at Juicebox have a serious love affair with the AE86. There is just something about these cars, the spirit, the reward, and the simplicity, all embodied in a very genuine very simple, honest little chassis.

The Boxy

evan-starlet-9

Intended for nothing more than commuting, the “boxy” starlet as its known here in Ireland was a cheap and cheerful run around from Toyota. Up until a few years ago, these were actually quite a common sight Irish roads, putting up a tough fight with newer cars until the scrappage scheme and insurance companies started to clamp down on the resilient old starlet.

No Name Heroes

The roads are empty; the average folk are sound asleep. Between the valleys of a Celtic tiger vision, the grumbling sound of a 1jz resonates against the dew-covered embankments.

In The Shadows

What makes a great RPs13? The 180sx has been around for over a quarter of a century, a car that is loved by so many it is essentially a mascot of the drifting world and we still just cant get enough of these things.

2016 Ford meet : Rolling out

fordmeet201623

Sometimes we tend to forget just how rich this country is with car culture. I mostly spend my time these days around Japanese metal, but that wasn’t always the case. Before the Internet and instant access to basically whatever we want, the cars you were into were the cars that you would see or hear of from friends or in magazines or on the street in front of you.
