Project 924: The Jet-Set Life is Going To Kill You

Hey, you remember when I had that blog I used to update all the time?  Yeah, about that…

OK, so stuff’s happened…mainly the E30 Sold, just when I’d decided to keep it.  So, on the rebound, I bought this:

I’m an ’80s baby and this has been brewing for a while. In fact Pre-E30.  OK, let’s get it over with: It’s not a proper Porsche and it has a van engine. DEAL WITH IT.

It’s a 1980 2.0 N/A and has been a concourse car since ’88 then spent the last 6 years in a garage.   Belive me when I say it’s clean.  I’m going to Hell for dailying this one.

I’ve already done a load of service stuff (boring), removed the wost mud flaps I’ve ever seen and replaced them with Turbo model spats.  I’ve also changed the interior and I have rims and coilovers sat here waiting to go on…I’ll save them for another post though, let’s not peak too soon after 6 weeks off!

Shooting Practice: Evo 9 FQ360 x CCW LM20

Curtain twitching and neighbourhood watch is not really my thing. However, when I noticed Jon (a guy I’d met at a couple of meets and know through my old man) lived round the corner from my new place, I thought it was only polite to drop in and say hi…especially as I know he’s got form:  a 450bhp FD, and a whistle clean S14 slammed on TEs to name just a few.

His latest, just finished (if these things are ever finished), toy is a rather special Evo 9 FQ360:  Dripping with carbon, slammed on Exe-TC fast road/track coilies and finished off with a set of just-in from the States custom CCW LM20 wheels – these things are a pretty big deal in the UK as nobody is really running them yet and I’m pretty sure it’s the only  evo in the UK on set.

So, just to be neighbourly, I thought we should go out for a shoot!

I’m really pleased how the pics came out and had a lot of fun on the shoot…just a shame photobucket kills them!

Bee Racing: S15 – Twincharged

Flicking through an old Option 2 from September ’06 I found this 2 page spread of the Bee R S15.   Not only does the SR20 have a Trust TDO6, but it also has a Ogura TX12 Supercharger!
