I first posted a pic of this Celica back in my 2010 Tochigi Baka post, but never had a chance to see it run.
So, when it showed up at Drift Matsuri, I thought I’d take another look at it.19 Comments
Kansai has really been on point recently when it comes to styling. This is another customer car of the Looking panel shop from down in Osaka.19 Comments
Remember Goto-san’s AE86? Here’s another couple of contenders for the title of “Most Busted AE86 Drift Car” that I saw at Okegawa earlier this week.15 Comments
Not only does Asayan from Looking know how to drift rather well, he’s pretty handy at paint and body styling too.15 Comments
Remember Asayan’s sweet Levin coupe? Here’s some pics of it at last weekend’s HitomiGO day at Suzuka Twin Circuit.
Most of the day was wet and miserable, but at the end of the day, the sun came out just enough for me to do a “Linhbergh” as they are known in the trade.19 Comments
Here’s some sweet rain drifting by Jyamaken (PS13) and Chokkichi (S15) from Wish-R/Team Hlloween from last weekend.
My Kansai-based friend Laurence was at the Osaka Auto Messe today, so he sent me some pics of the memorial display they had for Atsushi Kuroi.19 Comments
I heard a rumour the day before yesterday from a friend who lives down in Kansai that drifting pioneer Atsushi Kuroi had somehow died. I didn’t want to say anything on here just in case it wasn’t true.
Unfortunately, the news was confirmed yesterday on Kuroi’s Mixi (Japanese Facebook) by his wife. He had died from massive injury after a scooter accident.
Rather than just post a single pic with a few standard words of condolence below it, I thought I’d go back through my archives and post up the best Kuroi photos I had as a tribute.
