• Event: Tokyo Auto Salon 2015 Brickhouse Video

    I made it to Tokyo Auto Salon this year and put together a video of the event from my eyes. There was a lot to take in but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t drawn to the drift oriented builds! Check it out!

  • Silvia: Yukari Bokujo’s Swan Song

    A few things needed addressing after the last track day. Firstly, I needed to get my e-brake back. I pulled the URAS Seahorses out and put the stock ones back in. That coupled with a tightened down cable and the fresher pads had it locking up as good as ever. Next up was basic maintenance. […]

  • Tour: Suzuka Circuit.

    While in mainland, we were really close to Suzuka Circuit so, with a day of not much planned, we went over to check it out. In my mind, I was thinking grandstands, big parking lot, and a race track. In reality, Suzuka Circuit is more of an amusement park than just a racetrack. Beyond the […]

  • Timeout/Shops: Hot Road

    Everyone knows about UpGarage and all their used parts selling glory, but there are lesser known used parts dealers out there as well. We stumbled across this Hot Road store in Suzuka.

  • Timeout: Any NSX fans out there?

I snapped some randomness that I’ll be putting up on the blog, but I wanted to start with the one thing that I immediately noticed – the presence of modified Toyota Hiace vans. They were […]

  • Timeout: Identity Crisis

    These pictures were taken at a scrapyard in Japan; therefore, the above image is very much the way things should be. The below image on the other hand leaves you with a sense of bewilderment.

  • Timeout: A nice family hauler.

    Peoples’ lives transition from one stage to the next – single, broke, wife, stable, house, family. And while the cars we love might only fit into our lives for a couple of those stages, it’s nice to have a car manufacturer produce vehicles for each segment of life. When this dude had to give up […]

  • Timeout: USDM on JDM

    I’m sure it is safe to make the statement that per capita there are more USDM cars rolling on JDM wheels in Japan than in the United States. Here we have a Chevy Camaro on Work VS-XX wheels (I believe, someone speak up and confirm!). If it were lowered a bit, it could pull off […]
