Southern Fresh

This is one seriously fresh Accord wagon.  Hands down one of the best I have ever seen.

Holy shit, I love the colours here.

So fresh, so clean, so fanfuckingtastically amazing.

Major props to the owner.

Purest Form of Win

Seriously, this is the purest form of win in the highest caliber.  Seriously.

This Forester looks unassuming and lightly modified.  What could be so win about it?

*BAM*

Yeah, that just happened.

A sexy Forester, towing one suuuuper sexy Levin.  I still can’t wrap my head around how dumb awesome this is.  The Forester is great but then you see it towing a decked out Levin!  How is my mind still intact and not blown out of my eye sockets right now?  How!?

Hot damn I love sexified Levins.

Just so, very, very, very awesome.  Utilitarianism at it’s very finest.

Weeeeeeee!!!!

I went auto-x’ing this past Sudnay again and boooooooy was it a blast!  Man, auto-x twice in two weeks, I’m living the dream ladies, living the dream.  I finished first in my class this time, booyow!   Never hit a cone, booyow!  Had a fucking awesome time, booyow!

If you’d like to see my pics from the event, find them here on my Flickr.

Here are a couple shots taken by Chuck Carroll.

Weeeeeee!!!!

Body roooooooll!

Gorgeous.

Flying Stick of Butter!

People ask me why I don’t go lower and flush with what all the kids are doing now.  You can’t rock house like that if you’re rubbing over every bump and your car handles like doo-doo.  I love the looks of a dumped ride, but prefer the feel of a smooth corner.

I hope I can go back soon.  My collegiate career is coming to a close and I am still a broke-ass college kid.  Soon I’ll be just a broke-ass.

Instant Pancakes: Hiromu Naruse Passes

I hadn’t planned to post today but I feel very obligated to now.  You’re probably getting inundated with this news all over automotive blogs, but it is for good reason.  Hiromu Naruse, Toyota’s chief test driver, died behind the wheel of a LFA Nürburgring Edition earlier today.  He apparently crashed head-on with a BMW piloted by two BMW test drivers.  Both occupants of the BMW survived but one is listed in critical condition.

If you’re a fan of basically anything performance oriented Toyota has produced within the past forty plus years, you partially have Hiromu Naruse to thank (of course others too).  Naruse-san was is an automotive genius and could drive like few ever could even imagine.

Obviously I never knew the man personally, nor have I been a super fanboy to him, but I feel very saddened by this information today.  As a Toyota fan, automotive enthusiast, and a person that enjoys a smooth apex, my heart hurts.  I’ve never felt this sad over someone I never even knew.  My heart and prayers go out to his family, the Toyota family, and the BMW test drivers and their families.  I pray for everyone involved.

Autoblog has a quick and nice tribute to the man that brought joy to so many.

His death is almost automotive poetry.  He died piloting the last, and possibly the greatest, car he had a hand in designing and creating.

I depart with a pic of my favorite vehicle Naruse-san created, the 2000gt.  RIP, you’re in God’s paddock now.

Ice Cube

No, not that Ice Cube,

I meant this Ice Cube,

This is the Inden-Design’s new kit called Ice Cube, for the Daihatsu Materia/Toyota bB/Subaru Dex.

It’s a pretty subtle kit and I think it compliments the Materia/bB/Dex body nicely.

BBS RS-GT wheels?  Looks like it to me!

Dat Ass!

Purple Drank

I was contacted a little while ago by Gilbert of Scraped Crusaders.  He told me about the blog that him and a few of his like-minded buddies started up.  I gave it a look and liked what I saw.  I enjoy enthusiast driven periodicals and the Scraped Crusaders are doing pretty well so far.  It also helped that Gilbert showered me in lavish gifts like a six pack of Irish Spring soap and two boxes of 100 count plastic forks.  Well one box had 99 in there, but Gilbert said he got hungry.  I can’t blame the guy.  *I am expecting that 100th fork in the mail, soon.*

Seriously.

Anyway, after I saw the blog and everything they had on there so far, I saw Gilbert’s pretty kickin’ ’98 Legacy Wagon.  This thing has style.

He calls this mistress, “Purple Drank.”  Fitting I would say.  Purple Drank is rolling on VW Jetta Wolfsburg BBS rims, in purple.  Gilbert hinted at a slight fetish for purple.  I can’t judge the man though, I too have a thing for purple (I long for a purple xB).  Gilbert wants to eventually rock a plaid purple interior; I approve.

Gilbert and his buddies are doing big things, head over and check them out.  I think Gilbert is also easily bribed with purple things, just saying.

A Jeep You Say?

Saw this on SixSylinder a while back but kept forgetting to post it up.  Now is the time to post this monstrous metal mayhem.

Yes, that looks to be a Jeep Wrangler laying frame on Wat and giant race rubber.  Yeah, insanely and amazingly awesome does not begin to describe this beast.  I think dopesauce sprinkled with a dash of awesomesauce is what this Jeep has.  Definitely.

It would appear to be an old Jeep Scrambler CJ-8 based on the extended ass of the jeep.  If there was a shot of the front end I could better tell.  If any Jeep gurus can jump in and help out here, feel free to do so.

But how freaking cool is this thing?!  Bagged and laying frame on Wats with a Bride seat that is nearly bigger than the whole ride.  It’s clearly been chopped and that cage doesn’t look to be to spec, but damn this thing is sexy!  If anyone can find anymore pics or info, I’ll give you candy!
