Cool Stuff for Sale

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on March 13, 2010 by ekhatch

First up, for sale in Florida, is probably the only chance you’ll have for a very long time to own a real JDM imported and titled 1993 Toyota Starlet Turbo. The seller is asking a premium, but it does look to be immaculate and considering the rarity I say it’s worth it.

Next up right here in Columbus, Ohio is 1997 Integra Type R #069 in Championship White. Bone stock in showroom condition with only 819 miles. Yea, really. Collector status.

Sunday Funday

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2009 by ekhatch

Started off the day rolling to the Ohio Hondas fall meet with Duke. It was about 50 degrees and pretty windy so I wasn’t expecting much of a turn out but it was decent. My camera is every bit as lame as my car so don’t expect much from the pictures, but I did take a bunch. I got to meet Brian and the super cool gang from Team Function and got to see Brian’s graffiti hatch in person. Seeing pictures of it is one thing, seeing it roll down the street is a whole different experience, it is crazy! Bunch of truly great down to earth people who have fun with thier cars and even stuck a Team Function sticker on my car! I’m not even allowed in Jason and Duke’s team and they’re my best friends lol. There were a lot of cool cars to check out but hanging with them was definately the highlight of my day. After the meet we rolled down to the hood to take some pictures and buy crack, I’ll have them up later this week. Let’s take a look at the stats for the day:

cars: 35 ish

people: around 50 maybe

beautifully done turbo K swaps: 2

J swaps: 1

friends made: lots!

homeless kittens abducted from the ghetto: 1

stickers sold: 1

Yea, little disappointed by that last one. I had a big sign on my window about the Melissa Project along with the stickers but only sold 1. Thank you dude whoever you were! It’s all good, it’s $5 we didn’t have yesterday, and that’s what counts. If I have to stand 4 hours in the cold to sell each and every one I’ll do it with a smile on my face.

So shut up and get to the pix already!

If you’re at Import Alliance next weekend be sure to check out Brian’s graffiti hatch, well, you probably won’t have a choice, it tends to stand out!

Cool story about the guy with this widebody turbo NSX, he took his car off his trailer and drove it 150+ miles home from Import Alliance so he could trailer a fellow enthusiast’s car home that broke down. Considering the amount of very high dollar carbon fiber sitting 2 inches off the ground on this car, that really says something, much respect!

It must be J series night here at HL tonight, first turbo J I’ve seen. Is that a DSM sidemount IC?

With K series swaps becoming so common they’re almost expected and even the jankiest hatches with Bs under the hood it’s refreshing to see a really nice build like this with a¬†supercharged D. Car’s quite a stunner too, not sure where that rear diffuser was sourced from but I’m feelin’ it. NSX maybe?

Too much of a good thing? 2 X bars, a C pillar bar and I think 3 strut tower bars. If her ass ain’t stiff enough yet, it ain’t gonna happen.

’79 Turbo D

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 8, 2009 by ekhatch

Big thanks to Kel at Supremacy Racing for sending a couple more shots of that completely bitchin’¬† ’79 Civic I posted a little while ago. This is more than a “tuner” or modified import, this car speaks to the very heart of hot rodding in the most traditional sense of the word. No cosmetic restoration, no fake patina, no modern twin cam swap, just an honest car. A build like this is exactly where traditional hot rodding has it’s roots, taking what you have available to you, giving it what it needs and nothing it doesn’t. In doing so Chase, the owner, has put together a modest car that has more character than some of the top hard parking modern show hatches around. RESPECT!

I wish there were some better pix, if you can’t appreciate this car you have no soul.
