RA6x

ra6x’s have been slowly gaining ground other the last few years, I hope the trend continues…. I can’t see it not


at least for oldskool toyota guys. they have potential and are still crazy cheap.


Celica win

1jz motor and the cleanest celica I’ve ever seen. all I can say is wow.


A reoccurring intrest?

Here’s an RA65 celica from Australia running 15×8 front and 15×10 rear superlight’s

I love these old landcruiser wagons… mostly because in Canada we got the Hino diesel with them.

Thanks to japanese nostalgic car, motormavenstoygarage, SpeedHunters and for the pictures


At last, a full photoshoot of the TA22

I’ve been waiting for more info on this car and a some more detailed photo’s and I finally found some. These days a cool car doesn’t just pop up from halfway around the world only to disappear again.

so here’s what I found

another even more awesome ta22 celica

cool cool cool awesome…. and don’t even start trying to analyze whether or not it’s practical.. who cares…. you = fail, your brain = no

just love this damn thing

celica3

celica2

celica1

one thing to note… is the rear camber… these cars were solid axle… wish I knew what was in there.

Thanks to racer86 for finding this


rendered ta22 celica

I like rendered cars but not enough to post them, but this one is too cool not to. it’s not the best rendering but he certainly gave it a good stance.

Classic japanese vancouver show pics

I was at the Classic Japanese car show at spanish banks vancouver this past sunday, april 26th, and it was a nice little event. I know there is a lot more nice old J-Tin around town and I wish more of it had of shown up.

and now… to the pics.
p4250085-copy
this is for my friend chris, he loves these old roller skate civics.

p4250083
this is the nice d16z swap in said civic, very nicely done I must say.

p42500982
This was a gorgeous early celica, with the jdm bumpers and badging, it was very very clean and a great restore!

p4250096
and best of all the japanese spec 18RG dohc motor.

p42501081
clean!

p42501101
and more clean 240z.

p42501232
a nice Datsun 510 with bluebird tails.

p4250133
this was my favorite of the show, a 510 that’s classic, cool, fast, and looks like you could drive the hell out of it and not worry about it’s perfectness.

p4250138
the 510’s turbo’d 1600.

p42501441
this was a really cool 510 wagon, with a 5-lug swap, z32 wheels, 300zx brakes, and 3L V-6

p4250177
It’s nice to see the older rx-7’s being restored and modded (resto-mod).

p4250178
a nice RX-3 rounded out the show.

there were more cars there but these are the ones I took a liking too.


All Japanese Classic car show

The japanese classic car show is this sunday, april 26th 9am-3pm!! I seem to miss it every year, but not this year! I’m sure my expectations are a tad too high but I’m still really excited, plus it’s gonna be a nice warm day and it’s at the beach.

iflip. Cheap, fun, low investment = happy motoring

I flip cars and that’s all i do, maybe I like the hunt more then the kill?? no, I just want a car that does what it should. I liked the wagon for 3 solid months, same with the cressida…building cheap, neat, unique cars was seeming to make me happy. but when you spend 3-4 times the money and end up with more problems then the beaters gave you is just lame.

here’s some cool pics of cool, fun, unique cars that make me happy to look at. altho some are into the $$ range.
