I’ve just had word from Ewan @ that they’re planning on shipping another 20ft Container over around mid-August.  If you’re after something large-ish or simply a lot of stuff, NOW is the time to order to make sure you get some space in said container.  I know there’s a few things I’m dead keen on.

If you don’t know how to purchase from Ewan there’s a few options, you can either email him directly via his website for a run-down on the procedure or you could look through this post here which help explain the process from the buyers perspective (eg. me);

‘Want to buy from YAJ? Here’s how.’

If there’s still anything you need to know after reading that or corresponding with Ewan via e-mail, just ask and I’ll try help you out.

Not really retro or classic but I have huge love for the S13 Silvia and whilst browsing what was available ex-Japan (cheaper than the ridiculous prices locals ask for their cars) I stumbled upon this old track warrior;

GT-300 Class awesomeness.

How freakin’ cool would it be to own this?  If my poor translation of the text is to be believed, for reasons unknown it’s FJ20-powered ex-DR30.  It also triggers memories of modifying cars to “Race-spec” on Gran Turismo and ending up with this exact wide-body setup.  Love it.

It could be yours too, for a cool 2,500,000JPY

It means business.

My brief attempt to find any photos of it racing resulted in massive doses of fail.  I did find a tiny photo that showed the NISMO Calsonic 32 leading a different S13 around a corner but that’s about it asides from a diecast with this wide-body.  If anyone has any luck with GT-300 photographs showing one of these kitted 13′s or this particular one racing, let me know!  In the meantime, here’s the auction…


Not sure about the wheels at all but the car itself taking on the track and the rain, what’s to not like?

Modern rims? eeh, not no much...

Inspiration; 110 Again.

June 29, 2011

I just had a little bit of potentially fruitful news which could mean there will be decent progress happening on the 110-Project in the not tooooo distant future.  As such, take this!

GT Challenge Cup, Japan

Cool as this is, mine won’t look quite like that.  Still, it’s awesome.

Dear, Please gift me all available KGC110 items from your catalogue.  Your friend, Michael.

Here you go Art (Banpei).

I was looking through the photographs of the recent trip taken to Horopito by some of the lads and one car in particular stuck out.  I caught a glimpse of it in this photo;

Behind the MS65 Crown, lurks an 80's child.

I’m sure banpei knows what it is, but do you? (more…)
