Juicebox in Japan: Corollas and Godzillas

So for the people who have been following our trip to Japan so far, quite a lot of this will be car related (as you may have guessed). This holiday was planned out as a car holiday, so it’s going to be an automotive heavy story throughout.

Juicebox in Japan: Steal a Persons Heart

Juicebox in Japan: Collecting the beast

Where to begin with this one? Without going too turbo on the intro to this experience I’ll give a brief introduction and a back story as to how this adventure came about.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been into cars, primarily Japanese cars.

Sunday Pandas


A quick glimpse at Aidan’s dream machine, a forever work in progress. This Levin is his Sunday beast, a square machine comes out for a thrash and a spin on a weekend and puts a permanent smile on his face.

Nothing major update wise this week, had a bit of an issue with the site but its all sorted now…. lots to come next week.

Stories: SESR

We are generally not one for throwbacks on Juicebox but I decided to dig deep. Deep in the archives and go way back to a time before Juicebox, back to pre-recession times when the country was awash with Japanese road cars.

Rounded Pleasures
