I received a call from Free Craft’s Tanaka-san last week saying that he had just finished the exterior of a new drift car he was working on. He wanted some photos of it “before the bodywork gets all destroyed”.38 Comments
I thought Australians were good at finding excuses to slack off and go drinking.
Late last year, I attended quite a few bounenkai or “year end parties”. The word literally means “forget the year meeting”, which with the aid of lots of alcohol, isn’t hard to do.
Not only that, less than a month later, everyone is having a shinnenkai or “new year party”, in which everyone gets together and talks about how good the coming year will be, and what they’re planning to do. Last night, I attended the Garage LFW shinnenkai, who have recently announced their D1 Street Legal campaign team, headed by last year’s third-ranked Seimi Tanaka.
Garage LFW’s boss, Satoshi Nakatani, said that I don’t put enough of his stuff on Noriyaro, so here’s a shot of his S14 at engine builders STF from the other day.6 Comments

While taking a shot of Hoshino’s Silvia with steam flowing over it from a nearby overheating RX-7, Dino Dalle Carbonare remarked that it looked like something from Back To The Future.
So, I had to run in and do my best Marty McFly pose.
Thanks Dino!16 Comments
