For Love of Scaled Models #1: Mugen ITR

I've been doing this blog for nearly five years now, so I thought it's about time to spice it up a bit. As most of you can tell, this blog is all about automobiles (Japanese mostly), and I thought it would be appropriate to add a new category of posts that would generate interest for...

RE雨宮 GT-AD FD3S

RE Amemiya FDs are abundant these days but that doesn't mean you can't find a special one out there. Case in point is this GT-AD wide body RX7 from Japan, rocking the RE kit along with the C-West DRFT front bumper, which I think fits perfectly. Photos via Yahoo Auctions Lovin' the Work Emotion CR...

Amuse S2K Attack!

This is a pretty straight forward post with a gorgeous Powerhouse Amuse wide body S2000 doing a little time attack at Takasu Circuit in Fukui, Japan. Photos via MINKARA

Auto Produce BOSS STi Spec C

Saw this gem of a car on Yahoo Japan and I knew I gotta get a post started for this beauty. This is actually AP Boss' demo car and is currently for sale for a ridiculous price of less than 15K U.S. I say ridiculous cause this monster's got some tasteful (expensive) mods. Starting from...

Built For Tough: Bulletproof R33 GTR

Although not making an insane amount of power (650HP).....This JDM R33 GTR is literally bulletproof. And when I say bulletproof, I'm talking JUN pistons and rods and a balanced crankshaft capable of handling well over 800+HP. The rest of the car is well.....self explanatory with the help of some classic bronze TE37 linked up to... Continue Reading →

Amuse Affair

Going a little back to basics with this classic 350Z look. I'm talking a full Powerhouse Amuse affair with the ever so iconic CE28 in Mercury Silver. Photos via Yahoo Auctions

Red Hot Evo

While browsing the web, I stumbled upon this gorgeous Evo 8 today. This is pretty much a Varis and HKS affair. Lot of Varis on the outside and lots of HKS on the inside... Photos via Kurumaerabi Varis front bumper, canards, and side diffusers. Lovin' the bronze RE30s! Varis rear diffuser, trunk, and Voltex combo... Continue Reading →

Road Less Traveled: Veilside FD3S RX-7

Normally when people talk about Veilside RX7s, usually the first thing that pops in my mind is a Fortune kitted FD. I tend to forget that Veilside actually made a "normal" body kit for the RX7 cause frankly, you don't really see them around. Needless to say, most modified FDs out there is either RE-Amemiya...

One Sublime R33

I must say the R33 GTR is probably my least favorite among Nissan's flagship line. The sheer bulkiness and elongated shape of the car makes it less appealing than the other generations of GTRs. However, with a few minor strategic tweaks, the R33 can seem a lot more appealing... Photos via Yahoo Auctions A subtle... Continue Reading →

Blackish: HKS Kansai GT800 R35 GTR

It's another gorgeous HKS Kansai Service vehicle. This time it's a R35 GTR equipped with their HKS GT800 turbine kit along with HKS internals for maximum power and efficiency. Other notable parts on this car's extensive list include WALD, Top Secret, and Zele exterior pieces, those gloss black Advan GTs, and a host of Kansai... Continue Reading →

Wild and Crazy: Route KS NSX

With the new NSX on the horizon, it's pretty crazy to think that this iconic line of Japanese sports car has been around for over two decades. But yet, little has changed in the years previous to the new generation of NSXes, that's 20+ years of the same body lines and a relatively same motor,... Continue Reading →

The Simpler Route: JDM Zele GTR

One of my favorite, more simpler kits for the R35 GTR has got to be the Zele kit and this one here is a gorgeously executed example. This simple but amazing looking GTR is rocking a full Zele exterior as well as some iconic BBS LMs that literally compliments any car. Photos via Yahoo Auctions

HKS GT600 R35 GTR

Only with a R35 GTR would 600HP be considered mildly tuned...and that's exactly what we have here. Rocking a HKS GT600 kit, Yokohama Advan AVS Model F15 wheels, Top Secret carbon hood, and an Auto Select carbon lip spoiler, this thing is definitely a formidable street car and of course the occasional track duties. Photos... Continue Reading →

Chasing Dreams: The URAS JZX100 Chaser

Brand spanking new from URAS this year is their Toyota Chaser build that's been going around shows in Japan. I just love the aggressiveness of this kit with the use of riveted overfenders, lip and side diffusers, and that crazy rear diffuser out back. If I had a Chaser, this is definitely the route I... Continue Reading →

Six Was A Good Year: JDM Evo VI

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is one of the longest running flagship model from any Japanese manufacturer with production spanning over 2 decades. Of course, as with every other car out there, advancements were made to the Evo through the years, but personally, I'm extremely fond of the V and VI model years. I absolutely love...
