Toyota Tuesdays: Toyota Hilux

Thought I’d try something different here and post some truck love. I’ve been into trucks for a while and have owned a few trucks ranging from a lifted duelly (Fab tech 4in lift front 6 inch lift back w/ air bags) and a long bed F250 with a 8in lift (all around w FOX suspension) both Diesel that i used when I was contracting. I totally miss the off roading and just having that IDGAF attitude driving was always awesome. But those times are gone and i realistically wont ever need a Diesel truck again so I’d love to get a gas truck and if I could would totally replicate this Toyota Hilux .. it’s stanced but a totally different type of stance that we’re used to hearing about .  Too bad they don’t have this model her in the states so I’ll keep dreaming. Maybe they’ll come out with something similar and I can have a snowmobile/surf and biking vehicle again.

Stolen Civic: Update

Some good news in this horrible situation that I just found yesterday that the EK Civic I posted stolen last week was recovered. Of course the car was stripped beyond repair with a list of rare and JDM parts it was sure to happen. It’s sad that the car that was going no where but up and just making it’s presence in the scene was just stolen and stripped of it’s dignity. Car will most likely be junked and as for owners plan to continue on to another build it’s undecided. Hopefully the luster for car building is still there and this misfortune doesn’t leave a sour taste for him with a future build.

 

Toyota Tuesday: 1977 Celica GT ST2000

Felt a little nostalgic today and started thinking of an old school car I’d love to own and work on and the Toyota Celica ST2000 Lift back was the first thing to pop into my head. Mustang inspired Toyota has an awesome seamless design, used in a lot of Japan anime and is a definite favorite to many Toyota enthusiasts. Here are a few pics of modded to stock Celicas:

Enjoy.

 

Stolen Civic

I don’t know if you some of you follow my feeds on Facebook or Twitter but I’ve been posting some pics of my friends EK Civic that was recently stolen. It was stolen at an event no less, Fontana at the Auto Club Speedway between 11-12p, January 15th. License plate number is 6MMV599.

It’s sad to think that even at an event for enthusiast you have to be looking over your shoulder that some sleaze bag might steal your car. A lot of work into this car and my buddy Lance is the type of enthusiast that has those old school fundamentals and put in the blood and sweat into the build. So it would be great if any one has any leads on the car. You can message me here on the website, Facebook or Twitter. If by any chance you see the car driving on the streets call the police and report it’s where abouts so that these people get what they deserve.

Elemental Experience

Honda Elements, We see them everywhere but none really that fixed up. I don’t know why? Specially with the Scion XB being all boxy and so into the mainstream but i guess to each their own. I had one for a solid year before I sold mine but like with any car I’ve owned, the mod bug bit me and from day 1 I brought it home from off the lot I was already researching what parts might fit and got started ordering my parts. My Honda Element of choice was the 2009 SC model and I do admit I miss that car. Roomy interior, styling was cool, and it was different from any other car I’d owned before. Wasn’t too fond of the power band and gas mileage but go figure it’s a box on wheels it’s aero-dynamically inefficient. If I could get one with 32+MPG i’d definitely think about getting another one. Well onto teasing with few pictures:

Here’s pictures my Elemental experience in the first few weeks, As i find more pics i’ll update again.
