Happy Christmas

Hope each and everyone of you have some sort of a good Christmas, whether you like Christmas or not, Its that time of year where you get to eat and drink too much without anyone giving you shit.

Things got a little heavy and crazy outside of Juicebox over the last few weeks in life and all that, so we do apologise for the lack of updates, life unfortunately made it pretty difficult to get things done with the website. Regardless of what happened everything is in the clear and updates and features and much more is coming real soon.

Make sure to check back in the next few days…

Until then have a good one!

Random Juice: Off comes the dust

Aside from many things people and automobiles exiting the country as we talked about in a very gloomy right up during the week, its always nice to see someone come out with a truly unique project to keep things a little more positive in these strange times. This KE55 has been in the making for just over a year or so now and it was nice to wash the dust off and get it out in the open air for the night. We will have the full feature soon once the final touches are added with quite a collection of other features which we have lined up for you over the coming weeks…. stay tuned!

Garage Life: The send off

It’s no secret that Irelands economy is down the tube, day in day out we hear a new story of something bad, someone losing a job someone forced to sell a car. The truth is, the “glory days” of what will be remembered as that chapter in the Irish car world where the port of Dublin was flooded with a car culture from the other side of the planet. All these “JDM” cars started pouring onto Irish soil, snatched up from the auctions in Japan and shipped the emerald isle. This happened for a good solid 8 years, there had always been the odd few Japanese cars which made it over before, but the major car rush which was witnessed by everyone was truly something special. Ireland immersed itself in the culture, rims, bodykits, seats, drifting, all these goodies which suddenly ended up being everywhere, suddenly Japanese cars were everywhere, it’s the biggest part of the car world in Ireland and has been since they started coming across the seas in the masses back at the turn of the millennium.


Random Juice: Timeless

It doesn’t get more timeless then this, a white EK9 sitting on Desmond Regamaster EVOs. Show me this car in another 10 years and regardless of what trends are around then I’m sure it will retain the same appeal.

Car Spotting: Number 189

I recently had the pleasure of checking out number 189. I’m sure many of you are well acquainted with the Tommi Mäkinen EVO 6 or 6.5 as its often referred to. The car is named after the Finnish World rally driver after he took four driver championships in a row, Its always been a cool thing when a large car company comes out with a model like this with that extra special feeling of exclusivity creating a collectors item almost isntantly.

Feature: The Once Over

I’m certain quite a lot of people know this car by now, maybe in its former blue attire, or maybe from a recent video which we put together for Juicebox called “The Night Life”, either way this is the first time we have done a re feature of a car. We decided that the car deserved a second chance to be talked about on the website, and at this time probably wont understand.


Juicebox TV: The Night Life

The life not too many people understand or get outside of the car world.

Event: Casey Furlong Memorial Drift Day

I unfortunately never had the opportunity of Meeting Casey Furlong myself, but from what I have been told from close friends he was the center of attention, a person who brought drifting and fun to a farm yard just outside of Tullow in County Carlow. This was the second memorial day held for him, the yard itself runs a drag and drift day almost every second week for people to let loose on each other or themselves with whatever type of car they feel. What I love about this place is the freedom, its almost like the last little slice of chaos this country has to to offer without things being too out of hand. Every decent day that is held in the yard has never dissapointed and this second year event to remember a close friend of the organisers went down a treat.


Meet: Honda Meet @ Midway court

So last sunday brought another Honda meet up in Portlaoise in the carpark at Midway court, the good thing about Midway court is it has a subway and is very central for everyone from all different counties to make the trip. I know your wondering about the picture above also, we managed to get stuck in a High nellie world record on the way up, which was extremely amusing to say the least.I really had no idea there was that many High nellie’s left not to mention useable! I’m sure they bet the record as there really wouldnt be any comparison!


Random Juice: The 1/10 beater

Titan in Japan: Damn you

Looking good there Mr Kawasaki.

Random Juice: KE’s Golden Shower

Reuben’s Corolla gets a late night shower.

Car Spotting: Who’s the Rarest of them all?

This Pheonix Yellow 98 Spec DC2 has been around for a few years now, a daily driven car which has been kept more or less standard. Many of you will know just how incredibly rare a Genuine Yellow DC2 is, and more of you will also know just how rare the yellow Recaro’s from factory in this yellow beauty are. The entire car has remained intact since 1999.

Holy shitballs, Norway as usual…

Videos: Shuto Kousoku Trial the series.

If your pondering the internet bored this evening you should sit down grab some food and enjoy this classic snippet of early Japanese street racing. Megalopolis Expressway Trial or Shuto Kousoku is a series of films about illegal street racing on the Shuto Expressway in Japan released between 1988 and 1996.
