I put together a little BBQ the day after HellaFlush as an excuse for everyone to bring out their cars and trade stories. Great times, good food and sweet cars. It just sucks that Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take as many pictures as I wanted to since I was busy manning the BBQ grill.

Super cool 1959 Datsun 1000. It’s got a real Hot Rod style to it.

My buddy Christian’s EF hatch. He was telling me he had to raise the car and this is his raised height. Haha, crazy kid.

Shakotan Ralph’s Cressida. Absolutely killer.

TE27 Corolla on Centerlines.

Justin and Mike’s 86. I’ve been watching this build on Facebook for a while now and finally getting to see it at HellaFlush and the BBQ was awesome. No shortcuts, it even has AC! Loving the SSRs. I want to buy another set of rims already.

Julian’s new Hachi. Sadly, he sold his Celica Supra but the new project is coming along beautifully.

Sweet 510. Color is awesome. Hayashi Streets are awesome. JDM grill is awesome. This thing is just a whole car full of awesome.

I still want one of these. One day I’ll own one.

I love seeing both of my babies together. I really need to go lower and space out the front of the Z. I don’t know if that’s a good idea though, I’d really mess up my exhaust as I’m already scraping it on big dips and bumps on the road.

I’ve been bit by the car bug lately. Usually I’m too lazy to do anything after I get off of work but lately all I want to do is work on the wagon. Took apart the dashboard to get rid of all the old nasty wiring, cleaned up the engine compartment a little more and started scraping off the deadening.

Brice is ALWAYS jumping into my shots. Sleeper Cressida and the Goon.

Oh and I forgot. I also got my hands on this a couple of weeks before I got the wagon. Dual cam KA24. I highly doubt I’m gonna put this in the car though.

Oh and my brass shifter bushings came in. I love getting something good amongst the bills and junk mail!

My fetish for wagons just won’t go away. I have a fever. And the only cure. Is more cowbel… I mean wagon.

A couple more shots of Ralph’s Cressida.  I need to capture this beast in motion so the world can see how hard it looks when it’s cruising around and scraping it’s belly.  You’d never guess it’s in Hawaii.  It would look more at home in Japan.

Kind of old news if you follow my boy Brice’s blog, but here’s some shots of us yanking a 1JZ from a MK3 Supra.  As you may know, our buddy Jordan has a MK3 Supra (1JZ) and a MX73 Cressida (7MGE).  We yanked both motors with the intention of swapping them and selling the Supra so Jordan has a beast of a Cress to take with him when he moves to Arizona.

Take note…  It’s daylight out.  An early start for us is about 4pm.

Much (much) later, engine and trans are out.  It’s amazing how small parts look in pictures.  Right up until you’re trying to maneuver the 20 tons of dead weight and not drop it on the car.

Super sketchy fitting Ebay downpipe.  We had to “re-engineer” it.  Hahaha.  Hello grinder!

Mmmm…  Snails.  I want (at least one) turbo in my car!

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 ❤ 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!

So beautiful.  I want.  PLZ.

And are you ready for it???  Are you SURE?

BAM!  NISSAN puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-POWERRRRRRRR!!! [insert Terry Crew’s Old Spice commercials]
