How I spent my weekend. It's a little bit quieter now, but not really haha.
The promised Willow Springs pictures from 4th of July weekend. This event was the All Star Bash X. It's kind of like a pilgrimage for alot of people there (driving from as far as Chicago), and I've always dreamed to go to one. It seemed like a fairytale place where drift magic happens/ all the way over on the west coast. But then I was there, and it was fun. Met up with an acquaintance from Miami who has been living in Northern California for a few years now. He was driving the butt ugly Yellow/Blue/Red Silvia coupe.
Soo much eyecandy for the car nerd. The beauty of these cars is how raggedy they are. It all feels like a circus freak strip club for cars with all the bright colors, glitter, scratches, bumps, scraping-the-ground clearance, nutty engine swaps, colorful zip ties and lets not forget the Heineken oil catch cans.
and manhattan beach at 4th of july for good measure
Some unexpected goodies came with the car:
two piston toyota brake calipers swap up front
SS braided brake lines all around
mystery "coil overs" (guessing ebay hehe)
So this weekend I decided to drop the ride height about 1.5" all around, here's the result.
Not as 4X4 anymore
Here's my entry for the Syd Mead Accelerate competition. It's going against the likes of Annis Naem and Danny Gardner so my hopes aren't too high.
Also,I'm in a drift mood...
Pictures of All Star Bash X from Willow Springs Raceway coming soon!
