JDM Insider: Kanjo Racers – Team Late Riser

This is why I love Japan: Stripped out EF/ EG/ EK Civics on track rubber, running B16s, racing on the street and chasing Police cars.

Thank you JDM Insider for bringing us a window into this awesomeness.

NEC Classic Car Show & MPH 15-11-09

This weekend I headed over to the NEC in Birmingham for the big annual Classic Car Show.  Not only was the NEC a mere 1/2 hour drive from my place, but there was also the promise of a hang out with the boys and girls from Retro Ford.  We have a little history, so it’s always good to catch up!

The show was pretty cool, though I didn’t spend long walking round and taking pics;  mainly because I was hanging around on the stand  talking crap or catching up with people!

I have seriously been lusting after ‘Rods recently…anyone got a ’29 Model A knocking about?

This K12 was a demo car for a Lotus specialist..no, really. It was running a 300 bhp step-cam motor out of a Sunbeam !  Now may be a good time to out myself as someone who thinks these K12s have real potential.

Alpina 5 was one of my “cars of the show” needed decking until the crossmember fell off though.

I was also in love with this:

The MPH show was on at the same time and once in, you could walk through into the hall where it was all happening.  It was cool to check out a few moderns.

Big thanks to the crew for keeping me fed, drunk and giving me somewhere to sleep!

Project MK1 Cavaier: Blair Waldorf on 9s

Here’s a couple of lame pics from today:

I’m all about this interior:

The truth according to 8380 Labs:

Future plans? Well, I’m just going to enjoy cruising round in it. When it settles I’ll probably drop it a bit more, but beyond that I’ve no real plans.  There is a kinda perverse side to me that would love to see it tucking Bentleys but….
