A couple of weekends ago, a group of bosozoku guys I know had a daytime photoshoot for “Champ Road” a magazine centered around bosozoku culture.
It was a good chance for me to shoot these cars without any interruption, so I headed along too.

This 60 Celica belongs to Kumachan, the owner of the workshop “Naughty Bear” down in Gifu.

Remember the crazy FF drift, slammed, onikyan Celica driven by Drift Tengoku staff member Kawashima? After crashing the car at Fuji Speedway, he bought another Celica to modify. This car, he insisted, was going to be at least twice as crazy as the last one.
I dropped in on Body Shop Newtype earlier this week, which is run by Sexy Knights member Niiyan (who drives the Nanagouki RX-7) where the car will be worked on to see it had come along at all. He hadn’t started it at that point, but he posted up these pics on his blog yesterday.
Needless to say, this car is going to be attention-getting and opinion-forming.
The following is a translation of the post on Niiyan’s blog. Before you ask, yes the tyres hold air, yes the car has registration, yes, Kawashima plans to commute to work in it and drift it.
Good evening everyone, let’s begin.
You all enjoyed the video from Tsukuba, right? (He’s talking about this video – Alexi)
Well, let’s upload some coverage of stuff I do at my job.
I really have a lot of stuff to upload.
First of all…
Drift Tengoku Editing Squadron！
This car is the product of his fevered dreams.
Look at the camber angle it has!

First up in part two is Goto-san’s new KP61 Starlet project streetcar. As you can see, it’s been done in the same satin green as his AE86…

Remember Kawashima-san’s cambered-out ZZT Celica FF-drifter seen in this post? I ran into him on the way to Ebisu Circuit at an expressway parking area a little while back. He was on his way to an NA-only meeting at Nikko Circuit.
The Celica is running a bit more of an extreme wheel and tyre spec these days though.

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.
