JTuned/Formula D Pro-Am Coverage…

Time to get back into the swing of things…I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and had a great time. Mine was cool, just ate with family and watched everyone play Wii Fit and shit like that. Always good to hang out with family, especially when you get older and don’t have as much time to be around one another. Can’t say I really do much other than that. I would have updated but the computer at my parents house is awful. When you type the computer is so slow that there’s actually a delay when you type…imagine how annoying that would be…

Anyway, these are pics from the JTuned/Formula D event last weekend. As you saw from the post with Billy’s IS and JDMEGO Jay’s Evo, I showed up a little too late and the majority of the cars were gone already. There were probably about 20 cars or so left over so I basically went just to talk to the homies and snapped some pics and took off. There were some interesting cars out that day though. I even got to meet John Peterson, the guy who runs the Mayday Garage blog all the way from Texas. Really cool guy. I guess he was in town to support his friends who were competing in the Formula D Pro Am. When he found out I was the one who writes up The Chronicles, he seemed a little surprised…Shit, I didn’t even know people knew about this spot out in Texas so if anything I was the one that was surprised. Pretty cool that people from all the way out there recognize this site. Alright, time for pics…

Of course everybody knows Billy’s IS by now…He even ran at Battle of the Imports the next day. Everyone thinks this car is a dyno queen but it’s not, it’s actually fully functional…

This old school Cressida was cool as shit…I love builds like this. Totally unique with it’s own sense of style…

I’ve been seeing alot of this Civic this whole year now and it sure has come a long way. I’m not a big fan of the wheels (for obvious reasons) and he’s got a lot of random things going on, but all in all, it’s coming together slowly but surely. I hope he cleans it up more because the car has a lot of potential…

…he started out with a supercharged d-series to now having a N/A b-series. Even has a Bisimoto header on it…

The catch can as a coolant resevoir is a nice touch as well…

Karen’s Evo with all the Voltex gear, Advans, Endless Brakes, and T1R lugs….$$$…Love it…

This RX-7 is one of the quietest rotories I’ve ever heard…damn thing purred like a kitten…

I didn’t get a shot of the whole car cuz it wasn’t much to look at but the valve cover and intake pipe are kinda interesting…I don’t know, just kinda screams for attention, and not necessarily the good kind. Looks like dry-wall primer or spackle paint or some shit…either way, looks like a brick of Spam after you’ve left it out too long and it dries up…ehhh…

Your eyes don’t deceive you, that tire really is thin as fuck. Like pubic hair thin. Like if you hit a pothole the fuckin tire wouldn’t blow out cuz it’s so thin that it’s basically a rubber wrap…I can go on if you want…haha…

15 series!! So thin that if you drove over a reflector on the road your ass might fly outta the fuckin car…

Another nice Cressida at the event….Don’t quote me but that might be a Mark II front end…I’ve been away from Toyotas for a minute now so I’m not too up to date on my info. Speedhunters actually has a feature on this car right now so make sure you check it out here….

This is the car that actually ended up winning the whole comp that day. I gotta say, it might be the first time I’ve seen a 4-door R32 in person. Always loved R32s…another car I’ll never own…haha. If it were up to me though I’d drive a 4-door R33 all day. When I say “all day” I mean I’d buy it and put it in my garage and never drive it, because when I bought my Q45 I told myself I’d drive that shit “all day” too and now look at it….

I leave you with some more pics of one of the coolest cars there…Thanks for looking, I’ll try to update accordingly, I actually have to move to a new place this weekend so it might get kinda hectic…

Peace.
