Nothing much going on. Did a little bit of work on the wagon but nothing groundbreaking. Been hanging out with the infamous BKH808. Here’s some random pictures that I like.

Wall of racecars

mmm 2 door wagon


By the way, have you guys checked out High Top Fade? It’s a pretty amazing blog.

Not a Fairlady, but a Dragonlady. Get me a beer. High-five if you know that line from Gran Torino.

So perfect. The color, the Advans, the photography… everything. If I remember correctly, the owner is also a pro photographer.

Peep the Flickr!

Noel’s RA29 is getting some much deserved TLC with a complete teardown. The rims he has waiting for this car is utterly BONKERS! When I last spoke with him, the motor was still undecided and if anyone has any leads on smiley bumpers, hit me up!

A buddy of mine, Noel, granted permission to showcase the teardown and rebuild of his ’77 RA29 Celica Liftback.

I bet you can’t wait to see her naked.

I didn’t realize my buddy Christian (who owns that SICK EF hatchback) was filming with his GoPro at the meet.

AHHH Stupid Youtube and music copyrights. Check it out on youtube.

Extras and WTF’s coming later.

And I don’t mean blow up dolls.  I finally got a USB drive for my camera’s SD card so here’s some pictures from an old school Toyota meet a couple of weeks ago.

Ralph’s shakotan sled.  Best.  Cressida.  EVER!

Julian peddling his wares.

Super clean Hachi.  I <3 this thing.

Equips 03’s look so goooooooood.  And check out that ride height!

Reflectors, speedbumps and potholes cower in fear!

Kalei’s (sp?) shovel nosed Corona looking as good as ever.

Pretty clean fastback Celica rocking some Texas plates.  I went with a couple of friends to check out one of these probably about 5 years ago, but it was rotting away…

I love it when the wheels cost more than the Blue Book on the car!  Baller status right here!

Section D recently had a gathering to celebrate their first year of kicking ass as a crew. A couple of familiar faces (and cars) came out to play.

On a side note, I’ve been reading up on RB25/6 swaps for the Z.  I totally shouldn’t do it, but I probably will.  I’m so broke…

… as long as it’s a Corona.

Went on a super fail mission with Brice on Sunday.  Tried to go to the junkyard, but they were closing their gate as we arrived.  Then we attempted to go to a shop that sells aftermarket parts for my Ruckus.  Of course they were closed.  As a great conciliation prize, we did spot a weathered, 4 door Toyota Corona at the shop next door.

Looks like it’s mostly surface rust, with all the major components still intact.  If I had a place to park her I’d leave my number on the window and turn it into this:

Mmmm…  Nostalgic Hero, we need your magazines in Hawaii.

My neighbors Celica.  Some super old lady.  We also saw a spotless TE72 Corolla wagon in some parking lot that we left a number for, but I didn’t think to grab a picture of it.

Australian built Celica that makes my jaw hit the floor no matter how many times I stare at the picture.  Hotted up 2-TG and SSR’s with offsets in the double negatives?  YES PLEASE!  Huge thumbs up to the UK magazine Banzai, for recognizing how awesome this car is and giving it a cover.  I think the most difficult question ever is, what looks tougher?  The oil cooler hanging out the front or the bad ass racing jacket (headlight covers)?

Check the build thread on Japanese Nostalgic Car (where else do I find these awesome cars?), for more pictures including newer ones with the CF hood, trunk and doors!
