Most of you should know this car by know, in my eyes its one of the best EG6s this country has ever seen, with its unique front end conversion from a DC2 to its brown paint job which was unheard of in Ireland when car was sprayed, sparking others to go down a similar route. The car has always been progressing towards the perfect car, daily driven on some of the most horrible roads in Ireland and sitting low enough to look amazing, I have nothing but respect for Jackie and his quest to build his ultimate Civic. Wr put this video together, just to showcase how it looks at present, but believe me this will just keep evolving and help push the car scene in the right direction.
So I had been following Magoo’s Turbo Dc2 build to where it would be finally tested, at Straightliners in Enniskillen. I decided to give a hand the day before which ended up being an all nighter as we tried to get the car back together before it was trailered and brought up north. There was mapping going on right up till the car was loaded up. This is how strapped for time everyone was as the deadline crept up so quick.
Magoo’s car finally backs out from the land of the ferries. It will leave to go to the mountains to get mapped and where the final touches can be added.
Looks like the engine wont be going back in. a change of plan as this mini magoo clone will be powering this integra instead. Its even turbo. Sound effects not included
Clodagh’s Dc2 looking clean. Loved the odd wheel combo and how low it is in this country.
I found these on my old pc thought they were gone. These i think were supposed to go in MIJ but never happened and i had stored them away. Here they are well the best ones. I was surprised to see that there was so many decent cars at that meet. Really, people had stepped it up and it seems the scene of buddy club and wings west body kitted smooth mobiles like these warriors with the delicious wolfrace katanas and the colour coded interior with them lovely f.u.k badges is becoming more of a rarity day by day.
“The technical wheel” wow that sounds really fancy cant wait for them to come out. Nah really though what a cool little poster. They definitely don’t make shit like they used to or maybe its just me, but this new cr-z just doesent have the look of the ef8 crx. Dont get me wrong it might eventually grow on everyone but cars for sure are definitely becoming more and more shitty and futuristic looking.
Mugen have unveiled there new mugen line for the cr-z which looks good i guess and spoon seem to have the car on their catalogue on there japan site ready for stuff but compared to the crx this looks like a Citroen c4 van at the rear. It just doesn’t have that same raw look that other Hondas have had over the years. I know some day everyone will have to drive little battery cars and stuff but cant they still make them look some way aggressive or less bubbly and less like every other car. I cant imagine someone ripping one of these apart and building it into a race car at the minute. Listening to the roar of a b18 or whatever engine this is going to get around a track in a a stripped out shell. Maybe im full of shit and id say im wrong but at the end of the day its new and the old has already been proven. This car to some people will look amazing and i wasnt around to think about the crx when that came out i bet people said the same thing. I guess id just take the ss works crx over any crz any day haha and we will just have to wait and see how the cr-z goes.
Not really a full bay shot but this is good enough.
Some nice cars out being cars at 3am. Cant get enough of the k20 powered eg6 with the spoon calipers. Check back for more pics of the eg6 soon and some more.
Im trying to follow magoos build of his turbo dc2 that Magical taylor from the place of ferries is building.
Heres what i have so far.
Hey. The sites up. its simple and stuff and kind of blank for now. I’m just going to start chucking stuff up each day so be sure to check back.
Ive got some pics up on my computer from the last year that i am going to stick here of track days events etc.
Here’s a few from a track day in Mondello in 09
Abit old i know.. but i didnt get a chance to put the pics up anywhere or some of the video. i dont have much because most of the pictures got deleted somehow. Thanks fuck some of the more decent ones didnt.
This is the dodgiest quarter mile ever. The inside of a horse racing track. Here are some times filmed on the day. Just a few before i got bored.
Monster is just too much for bees.
Jackie’s eg6 slash dc two. Which is currently being turned into something else stay tuned for updates on that….
Mad racing stall with Toms old s14. Everything just looks better with some sun.
This was my fave of the whole day because its just cool as fuck.
This is turning into such a nice car. This is how it should be done.
This clip from hot version shows the car in Japan>
