Business as Usual

So about three weeks ago the site went down, unfortunately, I didn’t have it backed up properly after a couple of updates and the internals failed.  It took some extra help to eventually diagnose the problem. The problem was out of my knowledge but luckily I had a decent friend who was willing to go through everything and eventually we figured it out the issue. I have to give a big shout out to Nicky O Keefe of Ireland Web Design for taking the time to sort things out. Thanks to everyone who sent in emails or asked if they could help, everything is back to normal now and we will resume our usual scheduling tomorrow. The shop will be live in the next week and we have a video blog series coming about the trusty old 86 we pulled out of the ditch, a trailer for this is coming this week.

Stay tuned and thanks as always for your continued support.

Long live Vtec: Honda Day 2017 PT2

As much as I enjoy seeing a stationary Honda, it’s hard to beat the sound of a B-series screaming around a track.

Juicebox in Japan: Up Garage Hunting

During our trip to Japan, we ventured as many Up Garages as we came across. There was always one close to tuning shops and just after some food and a visit to Top Secret we spotted a relativly big one on the same street. Each one is completely different so its really a lucky dip, some are heavily packed with absolute gold whilst others were a little tamer, regardless there was always something of interest in each one of them.

Long live Vtec: Honda Day 2017 PT1

I didn’t want to miss this event. Last year Flip made the drive up and any of the photos I had seen from the day were amazing. The days of seeing Hondas out in the open have quickly disappeared. It seems the bad image the Honda had just over four years ago has vanished.

Dream Chaser: Advan C33 Laurel

This weekend Reuben gets to live out a dream. A couple of months ago he toyed with the idea of turning his already superb C33 into a fully fledged drift machine to drive at Gatebil. He bought this C33 on a whim last year, a car he was curious about that came up for cheap, this was right before Americans could get their hands these which tripled the prices overnight.

Juicebox in Japan: Top Secret G Corp

After our visit to RWB we pushed on further into the outskirts of Tokyo. One shop which was not too far from RWB is called G Corporation, another on the must-see list for a long time, we had to go. I’ve always been a huge fan of their S-Chassis kits and outlandish paint work.

Juicebox in Japan: Old Kaidos & RWB

Google maps were kind to us, as we consistently selected to avoid toll roads we were brought deeper and deeper into the countryside of Japan.

Juicebox in Japan: Cars for sale

Like I’ve discussed in previous posts, there is so much automotive content to take in when visiting Japan. On our journey, we spotted so many interesting car sales or car related businesses on the side of the road. If we tried to pull into all of them we would have gotten nowhere.

Air out

This car will always be one of the main reasons I fell in love with the AE86 and that proper Japanese car style.

Juicebox in Japan: Koguchi Power

Koguchi power was a such an unplanned part of this journey. I was briefly trying to find this place but was completely overwhelmed by our Japanese markers on google maps and gave up.

Lakes X Levin

The AE86 is an infectious machine, I’m sure by now you know that we actively push any chance to showcase one on here and this was no exception.

Juicebox in Japan: Japandoned

One of the more interesting scenarios we came across in Japan which I felt needed its own article was just how much-abandoned automotive gold was just laid out across Japan. From unexpected bad old Corsas to Japanese superstars.

Inside JDMDistro

I’m constantly reminding myself just how lucky we are to have such a solid car scene for such a small little country. Time and time again I’m left floored by the cars that are on this Island.

I’ve decided to break this up into two parts as I felt it deserved as many photos as possible, not to mention the fact I was at my dream race track watching every imaginable Mazda possible going out for laps around the track.
