Big Body Silvia

The Nissan Silvia S15 is probably one of my favorite Japanese sports car ever produced and it definitely have one of the most elegant and free flowing body lines of any car in stock form. But with every factory spec car, there’s always room for improvement and with the S15, only minimal exterior enhancement is required to make it look spectacular. With that said, however, this particular post features a S15 with a more “wilder” demeanor.

C-West is the name of the game here, and it looks damn good!

The C-West GT kit is one of the more rarer wide bodies for the Silvia as most tuners I see go for the Vertex and Origin kits. But I think a well executed C-West kit might just beat out the competitors.

I don’t think there will ever be a car that would look bad on Volk TE37s.

Under the hood is a HKS GT-RS powered SR20 cranking out 400HP or so… perfect for street/track duties.

Interior is left simple with a Nardi wheel, Recaro SPG bucket, and a host of electronic gadgets to keep car vitals in check.

Rio Fully J’s

The J’s Racing Type S kit is definitely one of the most classic, best looking body kit out there for the S2000. Before all these new kits that came out, i.e. Voltex, Tamon, even ASM, the J’s Type S was the pinnacle of S2000 exterior and it still is today. This JDM Rio Yellow S is a great example of utilizing and executing the J’s Racing Type S kit to its full potential.

Advan Circuit Meeting 2015

Another weekend, another meeting. This is the way of life for car guys in Japan, and needless to say, I’m a bit jealous. I honestly think one of these days I’m just gonna pack my bags and head to Japan for a year or two and just really indulge myself in their automotive culture. Cause I’m not really about that hellaflush or mad camber kinda life, to me, I personally enjoy track and functional cars over others. You know, events like HKS Premium Days, Hyper Meetings, Attack Challenge, Advan Circuit Meeting, etc; these are the types of meets that I want to be a part of, and that’s just something we don’t have here in the States. But anyways, I saw these photos from the recent Advan Circuit Meeting, and sharing is caring!

Papa Smurf

Here’s another car I got a few shots of from last weekend, also my second favorite Supra at the meet behind the one from my previous post.

The Ridox front end was a very popular choice among the Supra owners, and for good reason….. It looks damn good!

TRD wing and Top Secret rear diffuser rounds out the rear end quite nicely.

Goin’ Wingless

I’ve been so busy these days that I’m falling behind on my posts, but here’s another car that I had a chance to pay special attention to last weekend. I saw this beautiful wingless Supra parked all by itself, so I took the opportunity to snap some detailed photos of it.

The Varis Ridox front end is one of my favorite for the Supra.

Everything works so well together on this MKIV.

A lot of people actually prefer the wingless look, and I couldn’t agree more.
