I’ve been meaning to track this car down and get some better photos of it, but until then, enjoy these photos from the D1 Street Legal round held at Sportsland SUGO, 2006.

The ‘Line and I were back at Nikko again yesterday for another crack at the place that claimed first blood on the car. Everything is more-or-less looking the way it used to, apart from the obvious white front bumper. About six hours earlier though, the poor thing was being pounded on with a very big mallet.7 Comments
D1 Street Legal was on today at Tsukuba Circuit. If you knew this event was on, and was hoping to see come coverage, you won’t. I had full intentions of going, but didn’t.
Instead, I went to a local second-hand parts shop and picked up this used fibreglass R32 front bar. Why did I need a new front bar? Well, I had a little accident…13 Comments
Spotted at Fuji Speedway, this GT-R was is one of a limited run released back in 1996 in honor of the widebody, RB26DETT-powered Nismo cars than ran in Le Mans. Available only in Competition Blue, these Skylines came with factory intakes on the front bar, a carbon rear spoiler and a nice little sticker on the c-pillar, among other things.5 Comments
Before I bought the R32 GTS-t a couple of weeks ago, I honestly had no idea what sort of car I would end up with over here.
Why get a Skyline of all things? Why come to Japan just to get a car easily available back in my home country? This is the land of exotic JZX100 four-doors and a AE86 maniac’s dream. While this is true, they are still as proportionally expensive here as they are back home, and there are other reasons not to buy the dream car too early.
After consulting various drivers, workshops owners and friends, the majority of recommendations fell upon buying either an S14 Silvia or an AE86.14 Comments
A grisly photo like this, when posted on the internet, is usually followed by woeful story of corners that were too wet, speeds that were too high, and insurance that is inadequate enough to cover the resulting crumped mess of oily, dirt-encrusted metal and broken glass.
This crash however, brought nothing but the kind of insane joy and laughter you can only get from crawling out unscathed from a high-speed rollover crash.13 Comments
