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.
I hate to open a post with a picture of rain, but I guess that’s just apart of our culture in Ireland, rain creeps into pretty much any interest or outdoor social event. Its always bound to creep up on you when you least expect it or want it. We decided to make the trip up to Tullow, a place where many of you know by now you can pay to drag race to your hearts content all day till you run out of fuel or maybe something else. We ended up missing Prodrift and Enniskillen due to some unforeseen circumstances, but that’s what happens.
The crowd continued to grow throughout the day. It was so nice to be able to enjoy the racing without usual Irish weather pouring down on everything. Its not actually that bad of a country once the sun come out! More>>>
Some of you may have certainly seen this ridiculous 850hp ep91 starlet from Denmark.
The trip was nice and long, and it wasn’t looking very promising as the rain decided to pour down just before we made it to Enniskillen. Typical Irish weather which really isn’t the best of friends with drag racing.
Lets continue where we stopped with part 1, looking at some super nice examples of some of the countries nicest ae86′s.
I hadnt been to Tullow since the first day when they were trying out the track. Each time it was on I either couldnt get a lift to cover it or something else was on. I finally got the chance today and it was cool to see that the event had grown. More and more people seem to be showing up becuase of the freedom of paying and racing your face off for the day. What could be wrong with that?
Love this image from Chad Bee. Wish we had some shit like this to take pictures off.
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.
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.
Holy shit check this Delorean with a 2jz rebuild. Wonder if the back to the future delorean had a 2jz supra engine??
Never mind the wheels standard ones back on and a supra engine this shit is intimidating
This looks serious. Wonder what kind of times this will set on the 1/4 mile.
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>
