Did you guys see the opening of Shark Week? A little different huh? I don’t know how I feel about it…
Anyway, Peep this out
Michael Muller needs to be on Shark Week. That would be my kind of opening for a whole week dedicated to sharks.
Here’s a video review of the film:
“Through a special partnership with Stanford University’s Neurology department, the project is also part of an ongoing research project on the benefits of VR for people with PTSD, anxiety and other stress disorders. VR has been shown to alleviate many of the symptoms of PTSD and anxiety, making VR an invaluable therapeutic implement.”
That’s what’s up. Hopefully the film can make its way over to San Diego…
Now, for the kanjo version of
Shart Shark Week:
Last month I posted that I needed to change out my intake manifold gasket (hoping that is the problem…) because I noticed a coolant leak. Well, I have yet to dissemble that shit haha! In a matter of about 3 weeks this is how far I got:
GET TO WORK DAMN IT!
I was going to finish it but PVT Ian got tired of driving around without front lower motor mounts, so we installed them with ES inserts
A hammer fixes anything hahahah
Anyway, here is a little bonus from my friend S. Hirokazu. He attended the Osaka Hunters car meet last weekend which got broken up by the police. If you follow some kanjozoku’s on social media, I am sure you can see better pics, but I love the raw un-edited pictures. S. Hirokazu, If you’re reading this, THANK YOU! I appreciate you always sending me pics of the events/meets you go to!

“…under that factory bonnet you’ll find the stock B16A fitted with a Trust turbo. Later this month, the crew is expecting delivery of a Quaife 6-speed sequential transmission, but it won’t be mated to that 1.6L. Instead, a built 2.0L B-series is in the works with power goals in the 350 to 400hp range… ultimately they’d like to compete in a hill climb event in Germany this year, if the stars are kind enough to properly align.”
Now THAT is something I would like to see!
When ever I think of a B series with a sequential transmission, I think of this battle:
Execution is key.
Miura-san knows how his Rocket Bunny’s should look and flow.
On a side note, I can only imagine that the white EG6 in the background is the same car he put together for the Tokyo Auto Salon 2018 [pictures via Aaron Mai Media]
Little does Miura-san know that his outfits have set a fashion statement for me. I know a lot of Japanese folks rock coveralls, especially the ones who are into the car culture. I’ve been collecting coveralls of all types of brands and colors for awhile now, long before I knew he existed. Since I have been inspired by him, I have nostalgic thoughts and feelings when ever I put on a coverall. Ever since I got into Japanese culture, I’ve always loved how they turn any type of clothing into a fashionable trend. I feel that fashion is anything you’re comfortable wearing.
I’ll end it with some throwback pics of the OG Runners suited up:
These are still abandoned:
