Those of you who subscribed to the Noriyaro Facebook page might have noticed a few mobile uploads from the Exciting Car Showdown in Nagoya on the weekend. While I was in Kansai for another reason and didn’t have my proper camera on me, I still managed to head out and snap a few pics.
EDIT: This car ended up being in the best top ten at the show!
Another of their customers had his 326Power-kitted Sileighty there too. Remember it from this post?
It’s not exactly the sort of thing that translates well to photos, but Asayan now does pachinko-machine-style custom animated LED tails and indicators. You can sort of see the red rings on the Type X lights halfway through a chaser animation.
Here’s the 326Power Nissan President I put on the Facebook page.
Yep, that’s mean. Work Meister M1 R if you were wondering.
The front and rear subframes are Silvia. The rear spare wheel well has been cut out so the cradle can be high-mounted. Here’s Doriten editor Kawasaki attempting to take a photo of the front subframe.
Notice the shifter? Standard Nissan V8 with a Skyline manual gearbox and adapter plate!
Of course, Haruguchi had a sampling of his recent favourite model, the S14. After going for a very simple design before with his bodykits, the new ones have a few 3D scallop designs added to them.
Lower it as far as possible, then make it work properly.
While most other drifting knuckle makers are going for a cop-proof stealth black colour, Haruguchi’s Bancho knuckles are anything but a sleeper mod.
Since we were in Kansai, you’d expect to see some old-school street drifting style on the floor.
Taped up numberplates is pure Kanjo-racer.
Here’s the interior with “kumicho office” style marbled paint.
Hand-cut River Side sticker and Tinker club sticker. About as Osaka as you can get.
Work’s CR 01 reissue is proving to be rather popular.
I’m guessing that’s mostly because they seem to go well with just about every car you can put it on, Honda or not.
Speaking of wheels that always suit the car they’re on…
Dear America, please stop it. Look what you’ve done.
More tomorrow.Tags: 326Power, Asayan, Exciting Car Showdown, Looking, Mitsuru Haruguchi, President, RX-7, S13, S14, Sileighty, Silvia
