Picked all these up off of JNC for $60 shipped. Not bad considering if I can ever find any Japanese tuning mag here (usually Option, Drift Tengoku, or VIP Car), it’s $20+ for an old issue. Score!

Added bonus, in the Z car HyperRev, a page is signed by Steve Millen!

Not only the toy Hako wagon, but THAT DRAWING IT’S ON! I love cutaway and schematic drawings. I’d love to have that blown up and framed right above my DSalni canvases.

I was browsing the JNC project Hako build thread and the age old discussion came up about the unicorn of all parts… the OS Giken TC-24 dual cam head. There was a lot of heresy stemming from last years SEMA show, when OS Giken had their crown jewel on display. Rumors of the head being remade and to be offered for $30,000 have been floating around since then. The rumors are true… and it gets even wilder.

Kev from JNC spoke to an Aussie OS-Giken distributer who confirmed that as of now, six heads cast in the 80′s have been set aside and all have been spoken for. One for a lucky Australian Z car nut, five slated to be delivered to U.S. enthusiasts, and a final head for OS Giken’s demo car. More heads are planned for casting with a current price tag of just under $42,000. OS Giken is also planning to sell a 3.2 liter crate motor complete with IRTBs and a header for a mind-boggling $90,000! 400HP at 11,000 RPMs? Yes please!

By the way, what’s the going rate for one’s kidney nowadays?

Each and every one of these.

The unmistakable “Surf Line” plus the wide steelies are craaaaazy.

I have a sick love for Longchamps. Too bad if you don’t like it.

This Hako oozes it. I don’t think I’ve seen one with a roof spoiler before. A stock(er) looking exhaust would be better though. Here’s to hoping it has an RB26 and needs a fat pipe.

Here’s a first for my blog. Isuzu Bellett GT-R. I honestly don’t know much about them other than the fact that they have a dual cam 1.6L engine and that they’re rare as unicorn poop. Somebody school me!

Proof that Watanabes look good on anything. I’ve been telling EVERYBODY who will listen to me that new(er) cars look great on small wheels and huge sidewalls, but not many believe me. This is the only picture that I remembered where I pulled it from. Props to Matt from Farm Of Minds

Watanabes again? Stay classy, Coupe.

I. LOVE. THIS. PICTURE. It’s like Pokemon. I need to catch ‘em all. Bluebirds, Hako, Fairlady and 1200… OH MY!



Watch This.

Big ups once again to Rod. Sick video from Nostalgic 2 Days. My jaw literally dropped.

Found this over on Mayday Garage and thought it was awesome. Max camber, super low and awesome wheels.

Rod of Tetsuya Garage pointed me towards his personal blog with some AMAZING coverage of the recent Nostalgic 2 Days. Here’s my favs.

You can never go wrong with the classic Watanabes. Ever.

Hells yeah. Techno Phantoms. I really want to pick up some Techno Phantoms, Riverside Riverges or Star Sharks. Something a little more intricate and jewel-like than the wheels I already have.

Burgundy Hako sedan with some DEEEEEEEEEP 01′s. I love how classy the color is, as it probably wouldn’t work as well on a coupe.

Star Road’s always spotless S30Z now rocking color matched Equip 03′s.

Kenmeri on the new Work Meister CR01′s. I am not a fan of these wheels. I don’t know, I think it’s the shape of the spokes and the extra holes around the lug nut holes. In my opinion it makes it look cheap. *Flame suit on*

Beautiful TE72 on the new Gram Lights 57v. Not a fan of these wheels either. I thought they would grow on me but they still haven’t. Maybe it needs more dish. By the way, anyone notice the fender mirrors? NISSAN BABY! Take that, Brice!

Since Minkara pwns me (I really am technologically illiterate), I like to peruse sites like JDM Style Tuning for my fix of automotive erotica. Recently posted on the forums were some pictures from the Skyline Owners Battle at the Tsukuba Circuit. Here’s some of my favs.

So freakin’ buff.
