First of all, apologies for the delay in getting any substantial Tokyo Auto Salon coverage up on the blog as of late. The week after the show was spent in Japan travelling to additional events and locations, while my time since landing back in the UK has been spent catching up on the ten days of STL/326POWER UK work I lost due to the trip. Nevertheless, it’s time to get some words and photos together and it feels good to do so.
Dan from Low Origin works fast. Adam from RETROshine also works fast, maybe even faster than Dan. Combined, the two can churn out work at an alarming rate, with the transformation performed on Dan’s own S15 this weekend just gone being a case in point.
I’ve not posted anything substantial about my Nissan Cedric since August 2016 (see that post here) so I felt it was time I brought everyone up to speed now that I’ve been posting more photos of him (I’ve never been able to refer to the Cedric as “it”, only “him”…I know, I know) as of late.
I’m very pleased to announce that the HM-Sports range now extends beyond BMW parts! The Huxley Motorsport-designed Nissan S14 Zenki Aero Kit is now exclusively available from STREET TRACK LIFE and brings a fresh look to the table in a market that largely comprises of the same parts that have been around for fifteen years or so now.
Ultimate Stance isn’t the sort of event I’d normally find myself at. In all honesty, I very rarely attend anything car related that isn’t a drift event or the occasional meet. While I can appreciate why some people might not enjoy indoor shows, I feel it’s a bit short-sighted of us (myself included) to limit our appreciation of our varying native car scenes. When you only surround yourself with people who are into one thing and one thing only, it’s all too easy to get tunnel vision and begin to struggle to appreciate the work of others that really does deserve some acknowledgement.
