The phrase “from rags to riches” was the last thing I wanted to call this feature, but the more Peter told me the story I couldn’t believe how the car had turned out. Eventually I realised after trying to come up with something a little bit more imaginative, this car truly earned the title. The common build we see in the United States of a bog standard civic being converted into a flawless masterpiece in both the exterior and interior is really something that has only started to come around over here in Ireland over the last few years.
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.
What I love about Japfest is the amount of racing and activities that are on throughout the day as well as the show thats inside the paddock. It can be a somewhat overhwleming task to cover everything as you have time attack, Prodrift, drag racing and track time on all at the same time. There’s something for everyone.
I see this Altezza quite a lot and this time had the camera to take a snap. There’s just something so right about it being yellow and having those Advan Model 5′s poke out like that on the rear.
Waking up early Sunday morning and looking out the window to see another day of glorious weather was a rare feeling. Just as things got underway the track claimed another car as we saw a collision between Damien Short’s Corolla and Nick Quealy and his R32. Sadly for Damien the 86 would not make it back onto track for the rest of the event.
A new year, a new round of Prodrift and another Look through the car park to see what you drove to the event!
This has to be one of the craziest looking EVO IV’s in the world.
Damn this Pulsar is mean, sitting pretty on those Advan RGII’s, Not too many of these have ever really been played around with, and most more or less look the same. But this track monster is the first RNN14 Ive ever really been excited about.
Ive always had a thing for these kp starlets and i imagine many others do, heres a shit load of nice interesting ones to show some kp 60-62 love.
