photos from the car

Made the two hour trek to the Sunshine Coast today with my parents and brother. Beautiful place, the water was warm (sadly not safe to swim in) and the sun was bright and I saw lots of dogs. Dogs! Afterward we took our picnic lunch up the mountain and sat in this little park, eating sandwiches and krispy kreme donuts. A good day.

At Tatsumi PA with Nate Vosburg and his new RWB 964

Met up with Nate Vosburg in Tokyo recently to have a look at his new smooth fender RWB 964 build. Last time I saw the car, it was sitting in Nakai-San’s workshop in pieces. It was black, and Nate and Alex Kyo were working hard to get the car prepared for Nakai-San to do his thing. To see it here in Tokyo, in all it’s glory, with its glistening red paint was something special. The hard work has really paid off.

We took the car up to Tatsumi PA for a little photo shoot. The parking area was full of cars coming back from the Stance Nation event in Odaiba earlier that afternoon. Even so, the RWB didn’t fail to turn heads, and it didn’t take long before the car was surrounded by lads and their camera phones. 

The car is a very lightweight machine thanks to a stripped out interior, acrylic windows and a carbon hood. No AC/heater, no audio system, a sunroof delete and various other weight saving mods make this, according to Nakai-San, one of the lightest RWBs he’s ever built.

It’s been a real pleasure to see this car come to fruition here in Japan. Nate is actually moving back to the States this week, and taking the car with him, which makes these shots of the car in Tokyo that little bit more special. 

Big thank you to Nate and Alex for inviting me along for the ride. Thank you also to Mei-Chan who took the rolling shots on the Shutoko Highway while I tried to keep up with Nate in my Miata!

I absolutely had to post these photos, from The Dodo. Up in Ontario, this coyote was hit by a car, had multiple pelvic fractures, and was dying of mange. He eluded rescuers for three days, but was finally nabbed. The rescue center has fixed his fractures and are working on the mange. The plan is to release him into a “safe” area after he heals.

But check out that face! Perky eyes and a smile. This coyote can be an ambassador for coyotes generally!

Non-American cars at an American Car Meet … in Japan - Part 1

Over the last year I’ve been posting my photos from an American Car Meet I attended at Twin Ring Motegi at the tail end of 2015. While the American cars on display were stunning, I was more interested in snapping the Japanese and European cars that showed up. I thought it would be nice to post up all of the images as a set, in-case you missed any of them. Here’s part 1.
