Very Sick.

Any chance you're coming to the Van-Area swap meet tomorrow morning?

I totally agree with this. It's absolutely amazing what people can do/build. I'm in total awe - this build is bad a$$..

So I think it is due time for an update.

Drove the car to work. Alongside my friends RB26 powered 240z

Trailered the car out to a drift event in aggassiz on a tight 1/4 mile oval.
Not really the best track to "test out" the car. This happened.


Great bunch of guys helped me get off the track and back onto the trailer.

Moved againBeen busy in the shed rebuilding.
Finally got it up and running yesterday.


Front end is now fully tubed. Fuel cell added. Changed my front suspension to an a-arm style. It sure is fun to drive around like this. Wife is pregnant so this will be put on hold for a little while. Hopefully will be getting a bigger shop soon so I can fit the body overtop. I purchased a 1 piece fiberglass front end from MarkVFiberglass to replace the damaged section from the crash. I was pretty defeated after "incident" at the track. However I didn't give up just yet. I will add some more details later of what I did with the front end.

Nuts!!! Well when you play like that it was bound to happen, hopefully you got a little feel for it before your shunt. That church reminds me of one on 16th ave? Been years since I've driven in BC but your pictures often remind me of places I've been by.

naca ducts

Hi, I see you have NACA ducts, I glued one to some tempered side glass, I'd like to know how much louder it's the interior noise.

Went out to the GCVWS which was held at Concorde Pacific(where Molson Indy used to be). Awesome location and weather made for a great event. Met a couple of the forum guys(Panel and owdlvr).

Unloading. Had to take the wheels off the trailer to get low enough

Rolling in.

Look who parks next to me. Beautiful 993 on BBS LM wheels.

Cool Cityscape with Skytrain in the background.
