E’S Club Sports was a company that focused on speciality parts aimed at the Civic (AT & EF) as well as the AE86. They’re known for their muffler and coilovers: Eikoh! After the debut of the EG6, Eikoh! parts where no longer made. The company ended up becoming a car maintenance shop.
Imagine, the creator and members of E’S Club Sports probably never would have imaged their parts to pop off like it did. Little would they know that it would end up creating a sensation back then, and a feeling of nostalgia when reflected back on present day. You have OG Kanjozoku’s who opt for their parts and swear by them.
Though the company quit racing parts sales and racing activities about 20+ years ago I bet you they still own some tuner cars with Eikoh! parts on them. It’s good to hear that they’re still around and in business. Something we should keep in mind within ourselves. If you are passionate about something, stay in that mindset one way or another. Stay in the game yo! Be around the things you love and never give up on your dreams. ✌️
Back in February I mentioned how God Hands made its return to the streets and circuit (with a new owner). It got painted all blue, waiting to Incarnate into something else. Here’s a little update on how it looks now.
Word on the street is that the new owner isn’t part of Top Gun anymore. What will it manifest into now?
Special Attack Uniform. The clothing that many Bosozoku wear.
Some folks are Bosozoku “enthusiast”. I say enthusiast because they aren’t full fledge Bosozoku, but a hooligan one way or another. The ones who are like that may not rock a complete Tokkōfuku with phrases and symbols, but may wear a coverall to represent what they are about (kanjozoku’s & Kei Miura for example). I fall into that category as well. Over the past 12 years I have accumulated quite a few coveralls along with vintage ones from the military. Whenever I go on a PVT run I wear one; an act to bomb the night.
One thing is many Bosozoku drive cars. It’s quite uncomfortable (I can drive with them on but don’t prefer it) to drive in boots, especially a manual car (Nike SB Dunks is my choice of shoes for my Tokkōfuku). From my research I found out which boots, particularly with Kei Miura, wears. They are Red Wing Engineer boots. And from reviews they are quite comfortable and easy to drive in!
Time for some custom work on the coveralls so they can be certified Tokkōfuku… Stay tuned!
