This Merc totally caught me off guard. Didn’t think much of it besides ey look super clean classic car. Till I walked over to the front of the car and saw the hood up and what i found under the hood O.o WOW!

The 2JZ-GTE fitted in the engine bay!!! There’s wasn’t many mods to the stock 2JZ but it was nice to see it in an old Merc style Benz. The car also was sporting a face lift interior. IS250 dash  gauges and center console fit just perfect in the car. Wish I had more photos but memory card problems = FAIL and pictures didn’t come out. 😦 https://i2.wp.com/i3.photobucket.com/albums/y57/billshea99/IMG_1160copy.jpg

Nisei Showoff Coverage: Revisited Part 4

I was looking through some pictures I took at Nisei found a few I didn’t post. So here’s another part to the Nisei coverage. 

Always good to see Jamari’s car specially in SoCal. Gotta give it to him and how for he drives to show this beast. Dedication and car love. Awesome.

The homie Jesse Sabater’s bad ass GTR

HKS: Engine Building Masterpiece: R35 GT800 Edition

HKS R35 GT800 Full Turbo Kit is a thing of beauty.

Using both types of the HKS GT II turbo (conventional and reverse rotation)

 HKS R35 GT-R Transmission Oil Sump

HKS Oil Pan for the GR6 transmission of Nissan GT-R R35. Sick honeycomb design.

installed

I’ve rocked F-Con Vpro but damn this ECU looks sick !! R35 owners got a titanium faceplate and F-Con Vpro made just for them.. Must be nice.

The Drive Home: Car Gazing

The drive home was pretty interesting last night. Didn’t expect to see these cars all on the same street within miles of each other. It was pretty cool. I didn’t take pics of them while driving cause that’s pretty hard to do, so. I looked up cars that look just like the ones I passed on the way home. It was like a drive through car show. Dope cars in the Rowland area for sure.

Started off with Godzilla haha. GTR. coming off the 60 freeway.

Pulling out the 76 was a red RHD civic

What looked to me like a drift spec FD black with the GT wing. No front bumper on the one i saw but still looked good.

Last but not lease Gen 1 XB flat black on some wheels.

Good car gazing day for the drive home.
