Figuring that since this blog was first created to chronicle my misadventures pertaining to BMW E36 ownership, i thought it would be fair to give this E36 M3 i spotted at the meet its very own post. Wearing a full fat Sarto Racing/Rocket Bunny kit finished in Laguna Seca blue, what i initially thought was an […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2017: Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet-///Midnight Special"
Happening all around the World, there is one automotive sub-culture that has continually grown in popularity year after year after year with no let up in sight. I’m of course referring to the love of all things old school. The allure of days gone by, of a time when cars had their own distinct characters, […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2017: Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet-Part 5, Nostalgic Japan."
Taking a break from our Fresh Meet updates, let’s take a walk through one of my favourite places in Tokyo. Whilst i don’t really consider myself a seasoned Tokyo traveller, this is a place i’d always enjoy returning to, Daikanyama. With my current apartment located smack in Ebisu and within a comfortable walking distance to […]Read more "TOKYO AUTO-OTAKU 2017: Daikanyama & T-Site"
Car culture is a wonderful but strange thing isnt’ it? On one side, you have a whole battalion of personnel who flew over to Japan and in the process, acquired the JDM ride of their dreams. On the other side, you have another bunch of people who have totally fallen in love with the cars from […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2017: Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet-Part 4, Big muscle."
I know you guys must have been thinking (or at least i think you guys were thinking), “where were all the Skylines and Hachirokus???” Not to mention the other cult Japanese machines that showed up like a couple of NSX’s and numerous Roadsters(Miatas/MX5s). I just had to give them their own post. With the R32s […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2017: Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet-Part 3, cult of JDM."
Other than Project 944, it’s been some time since i last sent my car into Revol for any bodywork. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not because they aren’t competent, quite the opposite really, they are really excellent. But mostly to do with my old 5er not really requiring anything that i felt needed looking at. Sure […]Read more "Revol Revisit"
Now that we’ve explored the first deck, it’s time to continue speedhunting by heading up a deck. With time not that much on my side (i was heading back to Haneda to pick up my lost luggage and return back into town before the last trains depart), i had to work fast (and furiously!) hahaha… […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2017: Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet-Part 2, Level Up."
When car freaks from all over Japan (and the rest of the World) converge into one location in the middle of metropolis Tokyo for the annual automotive festival that is the Tokyo Auto Salon, you can expect many other fringe events and meets to happen along the way. One of the biggest and most popular […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2017: Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet-Part 1, Ground Zero."
おはよう Tokyo, it’s good to be back! I know i know, it’s been only slightly over a year since we’ve last visited this bustling capital but i still absolutely love it. This time, it’s back to the good ‘ol Tokyo Auto Salon for a short 4 day weekend getaway before grabbing a flight back home. […]Read more "ただいま"
While writing up my recap for 2016, i realised i never got to doing a writeup on our fantastic Melbourne vacation which we undertook back in end July/early August. Right towards the end of the Aussie Winter season, which meant less crowds and for us warm-weathered living-on-the-equator-folk, a much cooler climate for travelling. Maybe one […]Read more "Melbourne: Great Ocean Road Trip"
