What’s going on? You said “Updated Every Weekday”!!!

I know, but that was before I bought a car.

A black R32 GTS-t with GT-R-replica nose now sits in my tiny parking space here in Japan.

As many of you would know, the first week or so of owning a new car (by which I mean old and slightly modified car that has been sitting in a dealer’s yard for nine months) is filled with enjoyable things like changing various fluids on a cold concrete floor, wondering why certain important instruments like the fuel gauge don’t work (at least the warning light does), finding rounded nuts left by the previous owner and fumbling to find the interior doorhandle at night.

All of this is shortly to be followed by the Ebisu Autumn Drift Matsuri this weekend, in the predicted minus two degree wind chill temperatures at night (28 degrees for our American friends) and drizzle/snow.

Things should be back to normal on Tuesday.

That, or they could get weirder.

    Heres a picture made of words, black GTS-T R32 Skyline with 17inch wheels function over looks for now im guessing.
    Hopefully part of that function is blowing up the RB20 powering it and dropping in a much nicer engine, money permitting!
    Still managed to flog it around Minami for a while, good work!

    Ps, your fucking tall and get on with the pics, also Hoshino asked me what you do for a job?
